Big Green Fall to No. 9 Colgate to Start the Weekend

HAMILTON, N.Y. – Dartmouth women's hockey suffered a 6-0 loss to No. 9 Colgate at the Class of 1965 Arena on Friday evening. The Big Green dipped to 0-2-0 both overall and in ECAC Hockey play, while the Raiders improved to 3-3-0 and picked up a win in their first conference game of the season.
 
Senior netminder Christine Honor had 34 saves in the loss, while sophomore Jennifer Costa led the way with three shots.

"I was not happy with our performance today," head coach Laura Schuler said. "Although we played against a very good team, we were too undisciplined in our effort areas. We took too many penalties and didn't win enough footraces. We will have to regroup from this and take a serious look at how we can be better moving forward."
 
The story of the first period were the netminders, who made a combined 14 saves (eight for Honor and six for Liz Auby). It looked as if the teams would head to the second period scoreless, but a Dartmouth penalty resulted in a power-play tally by Colgate with just over three minutes to go.
 
The Big Green had a number of chances to tie things up in the second, but it was the Raiders that found the back of the net again, scoring twice within three minutes to make it a 3-0 game. Honor was working in overdrive, making 17 saves.
 
Dartmouth tried hard to get on the board, but Colgate got in the way each time. The Raiders went on to score three goals in the span of 13 minutes to end the game.

The Green will be back in action on Saturday when it takes on No. 7 Cornell.
