Engineers Defeat WNE Behind Colitz's 5 Goals

The Golden Bears made things interesting late as senior Liz McRoberts (Bourne, MA/Bourne) connected off a pass from Toomy at 5:08. Sophomore Michelle Denny (Lusby, MD/Patuxent) pushed it back to a nine-goal lead, but Toomy struck back firing off a short spin at the goal line past Arnal.

Another goal from Denny closed out the scoring with 1:27 remaining for the Engineers, who held a narrow 27-21 advantage in shots.

In addition to Colitz, RPI saw Scofield tally four goals, while Maguire added three. Arnal picked up the victory, stopping nine shots in goal.

For Western New England, Toomy had two goals and an assist to lead the charge. In goal, rookie Emily Castleman (Wilbraham, MA/Minnechaug Regional) shouldered the loss and stopped four shots over 36:10. Classmate Melissa Perry (Somers, CT/Somers) played in relief, making one save.

The Engineers return to the field on Monday when they play Ohio Wesleyan at 2:00 pm in West Palm Beach, Fla. Western New England is back on the field on Saturday, hosting Smith at 1:00 pm.
