Colgate Falls To Princeton on the Road

PRINCETON, N.J.—The Colgate Women’s Hockey team could not overcome a four-goal second period by Princeton Friday night at Hobey Baker Rink en route to a 6-0 defeat.

The visiting Raiders had a momentous start to the evening when they killed off 100 seconds of a 5-on-3 power play for the Tigers. Starting netminder Julia Vandyk made three key stops to keep the game scoreless early.

After the key Raider kill, Princeton got on the scoreboard when Claire Thompson netted her first of the season. Colgate stayed in the game in the opening frame and trailed in shots on goal by a 12-9 margin, but the second period proved to be too much to handle.

The Tigers tallied four goals in the second stanza, including three in the opening six minutes to run away with the game. 

Liz Auby entered the game in the Raider net at the start of the third period and made six saves on the seven shots she saw. Vandyk ended her evening with 20 saves and was tagged for the loss.

·       Princeton 6, Colgate 0
