Colorado College Cuts Down Loggers

TACOMA, Wash. Colorado College used a balanced attack and another solid performance by sophomore goaltender Abby Fink to post an 18-8 victory at the University of Puget Sound on Sunday afternoon.

Fink made six saves before leaving the game with 13:39 remaining and after the Tigers had built a 16-6 lead. She allowed only two goals after Julia Schulman trimmed CC's lead to 5-4 with 10:24 to play in the first half.

Elise Burchard answered 13 seconds after Schulman's score to ignite a 7-1 run that gave the Tigers a 12-5 advantage after 30 minutes. Anna Crosby notched back-to-back markers during that streak, including her third game winner of the year with 3:46 to play before halftime.

After Reagan Guarriello added a goal for UPS 5:15 into the second half, Colorado College put the game out of reach by tacking on four markers in a span of 3:57 to build a 16-6 lead with 19:58 remaining in the game.

Leslie Jacoby led the Tiger attack with three goals and three assists. Crosby finished three scores and set up another, while Ellie Cole found the net three times.

Frances Staadt and Kelsey Morell each had two goals and an assist for CC, which finished with a 38-22 advantage in total shots.

The Tigers won 18 of 27 draw controls and recorded and a 30-24 edge in ground balls. Grace Gahagan led the way with five of each.

Schulman had a game-high five goals to pace the Loggers. She also had four ground balls and caused a pair of turnovers.

Ana Calciano steered aside 16 shots for Puget Sound, which saw its five-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 5-5.

Colorado College, which improved to 8-1, plays host to the University of Dallas on Saturday at Stewart Field.
