Grizzlies Set Defensive Record in Loss to Tigers

Cole put the Tigers on the board with an unassisted tally 5:29 into the contest, but the Grizzlies tied the score 1:22 later when sophomore midfielder Amanda Hisel scored a man-up goal. ASC, however, would have to wait more than 31 minutes before scoring again.

During that time, Cole and Jacoby combined for five goals to fuel a 7-0 run that gave CC an 8-1 lead early in the second half.

Jacoby put the Tigers ahead to stay when she scored for the first time 9:07 into the contest. Her tally 1:31 into the second half proved to be her second game winner of the season and the fourth of her career.

Hisel made the score 8-2 with her second goal 8:14 into the second half, but CC answered with a pair of scoring strikes and took its biggest lead of the contest when Jacoby converted off precision passes from Cole and senior midfielder Grace Maloney with 17:03 to play.

Cole scored four goals on six shots and tied her single-game high with three assists. Maloney, who leads Colorado College in scoring, finished with a goal and four assists. She also recorded a game-high five draw controls, a pair of caused turnovers and grabbed two ground balls which gave her 101 for her career.

Sophomore midfielder LiErin Wilson added a pair of markers during the final 16:32 as the Grizzlies trimmed their final deficit to seven by scoring three of the last five goals.

Junior goaltender Abby Fink finished with four saves for CC, which recorded a 33-22 advantage in total shots.

Freshman goalie Danica Kristiansen stopped 12 of the 24 shots she faced.

The Tigers were credited with a season-high 16 caused turnovers and held an opponent to five goals or less for the sixth time in 11 games. CC improved to 3-0 on the road where it has outscored its opponents by a combined margin of 42-7.

Sophomore defender Krysti Kiesel had three draw controls, caused a pair of turnovers and grabbed a ground ball for Colorado College. Junior defender Nancy Makuch had three ground balls and two caused turnovers.

The Tigers, who lead the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference with a 5-0 record, improved to 9-2 overall. The Grizzlies, who compete in the Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association, fell to 0-6.

Colorado College plays back-to-back non-conference games next Saturday and Sunday in Durango, Colo., against Colorado Mesa University and Fort Lewis College, respectively.
