Steedman Stops 13 Shots as CC Shuts Down Wooster

WOOSTER, Ohio Freshman goalie Zach Steedman made a season-high 13 saves to help Colorado College post its third victory in six days, a 10-4 triumph at The College of Wooster on Thursday afternoon at John P. Papp Stadium.

Steedman got a great deal of support from the senior defender Zach Hoisington and the Tiger defense, which held its third consecutive opponent to five goals or less.

Hoisington caused three turnovers and grabbed three ground balls to help Steedman and Colorado College lower its goals-against average 6.48. Even tough Wooster launched 37 total shots, most were from the outside and only 17 were on target.

Conversely, the Tigers took 20 shots, 15 of which were on net. Jake Kabusta made two saves during the first half for the Scots, while Matt Magoon had three during the final 30 minutes.

Colorado College seized control of the contest by scoring five consecutive goals midway through the first half.

Nineteen seconds after Wooster's Logan Fitch tied the game at 2-2, Will Harris put the Tigers ahead to stay with an unassisted goal after picking up a ground ball off the draw.

James Mauk gave CC a two-goal advantage with the first of his three markers with 33 seconds to play in the first period, and Charles Curtis put the Tigers up 5-3 with a man-up tally 33 seconds into the second frame that proved to be the game-winning goal.

Colorado College extended its lead to four points with 4:47 remaining in the half after Mauk and Moses Taylor scored in a span of 67 seconds, but Patrick Schlick got one back when he tallied with just 33 seconds to play in the period.

Mauk added his third goal 46 seconds into the second half, and CC's lead remained at 8-3 until Taylor found the net for the second time midway through the fourth period.

After Matt Pullara added a goal for the Scots with 3:36 left in the game, Taylor closed out the scoring with a man-up marker 50 seconds before the final horn.

Mauk and Taylor paced the Tiger attack with three goals and an assist. Curtis struck for two scores and set up another, while Carson Christman recorded a game-high three assists.

CC improved to 5-0 overall, while Wooster slipped to 2-4.

Colorado College is idle until April 1 when it travels to Millsaps College.
