Fink Saves 16 in Tigers' Win Over Regis

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Junior goalkeeper Abby Fink made 16 saves, including 10 in the second half, as Colorado College began its 2012 campaign with a 9-6 victory over Division II defeated Regis University on Tuesday night at Washburn Field.

Junior midfielder Anna Crosby led the Tigers with three goals, while senior midfielder Kelsey Morell recorded a goal and an assist.

After the Rangers tied the game at 4-4 on a goal by Kelsey O'Connor just 26 seconds in the second half, CC struck for three consecutive goals, including what proved to be the game winner by freshman Dylan Voneiff with 19:34 remaining in the game.

Morgan Taylor and Margaret Nahrup scored 4:19 apart to pull Regis to within a goal, but Crosby struck 22 seconds later and Morell added an insurance goal with 3:43 to play.

Senior midfielder Grace Maloney paced the Tigers with four ground balls and four draw controls. Senior midfielder Bailey Terhune and senior attacker Leslie Jacoby each caused a pair of turnovers.

Taylor finished with two goals and assist to pace the RU attack.

Melissa Hastie recorded a game-high six draw controls and three ground balls for the Rangers, who slipped to 1-1 on the season.

Colorado College (1-0) travels to Jackson, Miss., on Saturday for its Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference opener at Millsaps College.
