|University of Southern Maine||Colby College|
WATERVILLE, Maine — The Colby College women’s hockey team pounded 55 shots on goal and first-year Savannah Shaw earned her first collegiate shutout in her first game action in a 2-0 win over University of Southern Maine on Tuesday night.
The Mules improved to 1-1-1 overall and the Huskies dropped to 2-6.
How it happened
* Colby first-year Tay Munson had a part of both goals. She picked up a loose puck, skated across the blue line, and lifted a shot at USM goalie Britney Evangelista. The puck deflected off of Evangelista, who momentarily lost track of the puck that had gone right in front of the goal. Natalie Maus, another first-year, was right there to stuff the puck in the net for her first collegiate goal at 11:03 of the first period.
* Munson scored her first collegiate goal at 8:43 of the second period on the power play. Tess Dupre skated around the USM goal and spotted Munson wide open calling for the puck with her stick in the air. Munson’s one-timer gave the Mules some breathing room.
By the numbers
* Shaw picked up her first win by stopping nine shots. Evangelista was busier on the other end with 41 of her 53 saves in the first and second periods.
* The Mules were 1-for-2 on the power play and held the Huskies scoreless on their two attempts.
