THE SCOOP:

Colby jumped out to a 2-0 lead as Katherine Gillespie scored the opener in the 25th minute off a foul called just outside the goal box. Olivia Greif followed suit barely 60 seconds later with her first point of the night, launching the ball towards the corner, assisted by Sarah Lofstrom.

The Mules kicked off the second half with Greif's second finish, off a pass from Mary Farnkoff to give Colby the 3-0 lead. Hannah Brozdowski added a cushioning fourth goal for the Mules, capitalizing on a rebounded shot by Juliette Nadeau that was saved by Sami Ireland in net, in the 68th minute. Loftstrom concluded the scoring Wednesdey evening just seconds before Riana Winslow relieved Ireland in net for the Eagles. Barely two minutes after stepping onto the field, Winslow was tested with a rifle of a shot to the near post as she earned her lone save of the night.
