Colburn Nets Six to Lead Wheaton by Southern Maine

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior Hailey Colburn (Concord, N.H.) had a game-high nine points on six goals and three assists to lead the Wheaton Lyons past the Southern Maine Huskies, 19-7, in a non-conference game Thursday afternoon at Hannaford Field.

With the win, the Lyons improved to 2-1 on the season. The Huskies dropped their second straight game to fall to 2-2.

In addition to Colburn, the Lyons got four goals and one assist from senior Sydney Ferguson (Jamestown, R.I.). Junior Amy Moreira (Bristol, R.I.) had three goals and sophomore Leila Mills (Brunswick, Maine) chipped in two goals.

Junior Kristen Palmer (East Dorset, Vt.) dominated the center circle collecting nine draw controls. Freshman Katy Ananian (Belmont, Mass.) and junior Stephanie Hoomis (Duxbury, Mass.) split the goaltending chores. Ananian had two saves in the opening 27 minutes while Hoomis stopped three shots over the final 33 minutes.

Sophomore Rosie Forster (Andover, Mass.) and junior Shelby Turcotte (Lewiston, Maine) led the Huskies offense with two goals apiece. Turcotte also had an assist. Sophomore goalie Kim Vogel (Sanford, Maine) made 10 saves.

The Huskies got off on the right foot as junior Lauren Santo (Salem, N.H.) scored the game's first goal two minutes in. The Lyons responded by scoring the next seven markers, including two by Colburn, over a 10-minute span to take control of the match.

Turcotte snapped the string of Wheaton goals converting a free-position shot with 12:56 left before halftime. The teams each had four goals over the final 12:56 to make the score 11-5 at halftime.

Forster's second goal early in the second half cut the Huskies' deficit to five (11-6), but that would be as close as the home side would get as the Lyons scored eight consecutive goals. Colburn had four goals, and Ferguson added two, during the surge.

Freshman Emily Garry (York, Maine) added the Huskies' final goal with 30 seconds to play.

Southern Maine returns to action on Sunday (2:00 p.m.) at Castleton State College. Wheaton looks to make it two in a row at Connecticut College on Sunday (12:00 p.m.).
