WATERVILLE, Maine - The Colby College Women's Ice Hockey team started with their foot on the pedal and never let off, shutting out rival Bowdoin College with the final score 2-0.
The Mules started where they left off Friday night at Bowdoin. With a power play at the 14:33 mark, Colby rattled off three quick shots but were not able to find the back of the net. Still keeping the pressure on the Mules were able to fire in a goal with Madi Aumann scoring her first collegiate goal with 2:32 left in the opening period. On the goal, Aumann swarmed the net as Tess Dupre and Mckinley Karpa passed the puck further into the offensive zone.
After the first period the shots were in favor of the Mules yet again leading 19-3. Coming out of the first intermission Colby was determined to add another to the score. With the power play opportunity Bri Michaud-Nolan (photo inset) scored her first goal at 9:43. With a two goal cushion, Colby was able to control the rest of the second period continuing to dominate in shots 30-9 after two.
Looking to erase the two goal deficit, the Polar Bears put out their best effort. Bowdoin started with an early power play, but could not capitalize. Both teams volleyed back and forth with the man advantage. Bowdoin had six power plays in the third frame, versus Colby's four.
"It was nice to see the team come back today and play Colby Hockey," said head coach Holley Tyng. "We made a few minor adjustments to the game plan and I was impressed with our execution. Excellent effort all around by the Mules!"
Stellar in the goal, Cierra San Roman (headline photo) finished the shut out and tallied 20 saves on the night. On the other end of the ice, Dani Marquez finished with 39.
The Mules improve to 4-0 on the season and look to face the University of Southern Maine at home Tuesday night. Start time is 5:00pm.
