BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Colby College first-year goalie Halley Fine (pictured) finished with 48 saves in her collegiate debut in the Mules' 3-0 loss to Bowdoin College in NESCAC women's hockey Sunday.
Fine allowed just two goals and made 14 saves or more in all three periods. The Polar Bears scored their final goal in an empty net situation. Hannah Insuik stopped 44 shots for the Mules in a 2-2 tie with Bowdoin on Saturday.
The Polar Bears took a 1-0 lead five minutes into the second period. Jess Bowen had the assist as she kicked the puck from the left post out to the far side for Brooke Solomon. With traffic in the crease, Solomon had an open shot on the right.
Colby's Carly Thomas looked for an equalizer as she streaked towards the near post from the right corner six minutes into the third. Thomas tracked down the rebound but pushed her bid wide.
Bowdoin doubled its lead at 9:25 off a Maureen Greason goal. Jill Rathke sparked the play with a pass from the left boards to Brigit Bergin on the point. Bergin fired a shot towards net that Greason tipped up and over Fine.
The Mules nearly spoiled the shutout as a bouncing puck from Katie McLaughlin danced on the goal line in the final minute. Lattanzio tracked the shot down to defuse the threat.
Julie Dachille had the empty net goal with 45 seconds remaining.
