Colorado College Blows by Augsburg in Texas

IRVING, Texas For the second time on Saturday, Colorado College scored 20+ goals and didn't allow even one. Fourteen different players struck for at least one score as the Tigers cruised to a 23-0 victory over Augsburg in their second game on Saturday.

Just like earlier in the day, senior attacker Madeline Scherer set a career high, this time pacing CC with five goals.

Senior attacker Iris Rayburn also improved her career high with three goals for Colorado College, which has scored 20 or more goals on three occasions for the first time since 2011.

Hannah Lyons notched what proved to be the game winner on a free-position shot 33 seconds into the game. The first-year attacker also grabbed a team-high five ground balls and caused four turnovers.

Two other freshmen took advantage of their extended playing time for the Tigers.

In her first career start, midfielder Colleen Orr struck for a pair of goals and assisted on one more. She also registered two ground balls and two draw controls.

Midfielder Mary Taussig struck for one goal and added a game-high three assists. She added a team-high four draw controls and three ground balls.

One thing that was different in the afternoon contest was CC's starting goaltender. Freshman goalie Maddie Pillari made three saves during the first 30 minutes to earn the victory. Sophomore Martha Smith played the second half.

Colorado College launched 35 shots, compared to only three for the Eagles. The Tigers also won 17 of 25 draw controls and posted a 25-13 advantage in ground balls.

CC, which improved to 3-1, will be on the road again next week when it travels to the Pacific Northwest for games at Pacific University and the University of Puget Sound on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
