Colorado College Dominates Millsaps in SCAC Opener

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Fourteen different Tigers recorded at least one point as Colorado College defeated Millsaps College, 21-1, in CC's first-ever Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference game on Wednesday afternoon at Stewart Field.

Leslie Jacoby recorded a goal and an assist as the Tigers struck four times in a span 1:36 early in the first half. Anna Crosby found the net 4:04 into the contest to pick up her second game-winning goal of the year with the first of her two markers.

J.B. Page put the Majors on the board with 24:16 remaining in the first half, but the first-year program struggled against a skilled Colorado College squad that has its sight set on returning to the NCAA Tournament.

The Tigers were able to substitute freely, and their reserves took advantage of the opportunity by posting 13 goals and six assists. Sophomore attacker Ellie Cole came off the bench to score five goals, while freshman attacker Madeline Sherer struck for three more.

Kate Krieger and Frances Staadt each had two goals and an assist, while Lara Atkins found the net once and set up two other scores.

Eleven Tigers scored at least one goal, while nine had an assist.

Sophomore Katy Stetson stopped both shots she faced while playing the final 53:29 between the pipes.

The Tigers scored on half of their 42 shots, 35 of which were on goal. Madelyn Walker made 14 saves for the Majors. Leah Bright won three draw controls and picked up a ground ball for Millsaps.

CC freshman midfielder Grace Gahagan led the defensive effort with four draw controls and three caused turnovers. Cole recorded a team-high four ground balls and caused three turnovers.

The 21 goals were the most Colorado College scored in a game since March 6, 2009, in a 22-14 victory at the University of Redlands. The last time the Tigers held an opponent to one goal was during a 14-1 victory at Fort Lewis College on April 5, 2009.

CC plays its next five games on the road, starting on March 23 when they face off with Birmingham-Southern College.
