NEW LONDON, Conn.—Senior Michael Igo (Sandwich, Mass.) and Ashley Anctil (Manchester,

N.H.) both contributed with a goal and an assist to lead the ninth ranked Connecticut College

women’s hockey team to a 5-1 victory against Colby College at Dayton Arena Friday night.

The Camels improved their record to 12-6- 2 with an 8-4 mark in NESCAC play. The improving

Mules fell to 0-16- 3 with a 0-12- 1 mark in conference action.

Steph Izzi (Salley, S.C.), Elena Gualtieri (Rome, N.Y.) and Jordan Cross (Saugus, Mass.) all

contributed with scores for the hosts, who enjoyed a 34-16 edge in shots against the Mules.

Kylie Wilkes (Howell, N.J.) doled out two assists for the Camels while senior Katherine Chester

(Mendham, N.J.) stopped 15 shots in goal for the winning side.

Colby College senior net-minder Hannah Insuik (Andover, Mass.) stopped 27 shots in goal for

the visitors. Katie Fenton (Norwich, Vt.) made two saves in relief duty.

Rookie forward Cassidy Holzer (Minneapolis, Minn.) potted a shorthanded goal to break the

shutout with 3:37 remaining in regulation.

Connecticut College out-shot the Mules 12-to- 3 in the opening period but the two teams headed

to the locker room in a scoreless tie. Anctil put the Camels on top midway through the second

period when she followed her own shot from the left circle, depositing the rebound into the far

post side of the goal with Igo earning the assist. Then, with 4:48 remaining in the second, the

Camels extended their lead when Igo went top shelf with a wrist shot from the high slot with

Anctil earning the primary assist.

With 1:52 remaining in the second, Izzi netted her sixth score of the season with the extra-woman

advantage, taking a pass from Kate Kohl (Chelmsford, N.H.) and flicking in a wrist shot from the

right circle.

In the third period, Gualtieri added some insurance with a backhander at 9:44 of the frame before

Cross one-timed a blast from the left circle with 7:50 to play off of a nice feed from Samantha

Eastes (Millis, Mass.).

Holzer added the shorthanded goal with 3:37 remaining, collecting the puck in the neutral zone

and making a nice stick move to beat Chester to the far post side of the goal to snap the shutout.

But the Camels were easily able to hang on for the 5-1 triumph.
