Field hockey hoping for another winning season

WATERVILLE, Maine — With two winning seasons in 2013 and 2014, the Colby College field hockey team wants to make it three in a row under fifth-year head coach Tina Cormier.

The Mules open the 2015 season Wednesday with a 5 p.m. away game at local rival Thomas College. Colby will play at eighth-ranked Tufts University on Saturday at 1 p.m.
After the program suffered eight straight losing seasons, Cormier and the Mules now have expectations of playoffs and winning seasons every year.

Colby (9-7 last year) has experience in every part of the field, including senior co-captain Sarah Evans in goal. She was an All-American after the 2013 season and has earned All-NESCAC and All-Region honors the past two years. Evans was second in the league in total saves (126) and third in save percentage (.834).

First-year goalie Riley Whitmyer is a top recruit for Cormier and will see game action.
Colby has the most depth on the forward line and will have three of the top four scorers returning. Megan Fortier, a senior, has 32 goals and 13 assists for 77 career points. She was on the New England West All-Region Team after leading the Mules with 12 goals and four assists for 28 points.

The Mules had three current players in the top 20 in scoring in the NESCAC. Fortier was ninth, senior Misha Strage was 15th with eight goals and four assists for 20 points, and McKayla Blanch finished 20th with eight goals and three assists for 19 points.

Meredith Keenan (2 goals) also returns at forward for the Mules. First-year Eleanor Fitzgerald will play on the forward line, while Merrill Reed and Anna Rudinski are capable of playing at midfield or forward.

The midfield will feel the absence of All-American Erin Maguire, who graduated in May. Junior co-captain Hannah Hearn started all 16 games last year and her leadership in the position will be key for the team.

Caroline Ferguson and Erika Smith (1 goal, 3 assists) are other returners in the midfield. Tori Brown, Rebecca Moore, and Danielle Smith all can play on defense or in the midfield. First-years Kate Burkett and Kallie Hutchinson are newcomers.

The Mules lose All-Region sweeper Kellie Walsh to graduation, but depth in back should not be a problem. Elizabeth Zusi and Brown both started all 16 games last year. Kaleigh Hoffman, Kat Restrepo, Kelsey Poole, and Molly McGavick all return. Sarah Gaffney, Holli Olson, and Andriana Pena are first-year defenders.

Field hockey wins in major scare against Thomas

WATERVILLE, Maine — The easy local rivalry win over Thomas College was not so easy this year for the Colby College field hockey team in a 4-2 non-conference win over the Terriers on Wednesday at Bernatchez Field.

In a wild final 20 minutes, Colby (1-0 overall) took a 2-0 lead only to watch the Terriers score two goals in a span of 6:39 to tie the contest at 2-2 with 9:16 to play. The Mules scored two goals of their own in just 1:34 to put the game away.

Colby has a 13-0 lead in the series between the two teams. The Mules had a 37-0 scoring advantage over Thomas in the past five years, including a 26-0 margin in the last three years (9-0, 9-0, 8-0). The Terriers had last scored a goal against the Mules in a 4-1 Colby victory in 2009.

The Mules did score early on a goal by Misha Strage (Westport, Conn.) from Megan Fortier (Falmouth, Maine) just 4:12 into the game. However, Thomas did not flinch and kept Colby off the scoreboard for the rest of the half.

Fortier scored with 19:05 left in the game off the first collegiate assist from Anna Rudinski (Morristown, N.J.). The Mules appeared to be on the way to a sixth straight shutout.

Gabby Martell scored with 15:55 remaining to cut the margin to 2-1 and suddenly the pressure was on the Mules. Martell stunned Colby with another score with just 9:16 to go and the Terriers had a chance for a major upset.

First-year Kallie Hutchinson (Pownal, Maine) took one game to get her first collegiate goal and game-winning score with 6:08 to play. Fortier added her second goal of the game from Caroline Ferguson (Weston, Mass.) just 1:37 later. Fortier has 34 goals and 14 assists for 82 career points.

Senior goaltender Sarah Evans (Cohasset, Mass.) made five saves for Colby. Thomas received eight stops from Abbie Charrier.

The Mules play at eighth-ranked Tufts University on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Strage, Fortier lead field hockey to overtime win

WATERVILLE, Maine — Misha Strage (Westport, Conn.) and Megan Fortier (Falmouth, Maine) have been Colby’s College’s big scorers all season and Monday night they combined on a golden goal in the Mules’ 2-1 overtime win against University of New England at Bill Alfond Field.

The Mules improve to 5-3 overall heading into Saturday’s noon start at Middlebury College. The Nor’easters drop to 6-4 overall and play host to Gordon College on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Colby struck quickly in overtime on a nice individual effort by Fortier. She stick-handled in from the left side and came together at the same time with a defender and UNE goalie Holly Smith (Peabody, Mass.). Fortier pushed at the ball and it deflected right to Strage streaking up the middle and she scored her eighth goal of the season.
Strage also has one assist with the eight goals for 17 points, while Fortier leads the Mules with seven goals and five assists for 19 points.
The Mules took a 1-0 halftime lead when McKayla Blanch (Tewksbury, Mass.) scored her first of the season off an assist from Hannah Hearn (Auburn, Maine). Hearn won a ball and pushed a pass to Blanch in the middle of the field for the score.
With 9:25 left in regulation, Nicole Matarozzo tied the game for UNE off a pass from Vonde Saunders. The Nor’easters had been putting heavy pressure on the Mules for about five minutes. Matarozzo was able to find some space in front and scored easily.
Sarah Evans stopped four shots in goal for the Mules, while Smith made five stops for UNE.
