Fortier scores 40th goal in field hockey loss

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — The Colby College field hockey team tied the game twice during the opening half only to watch fourth-ranked Middlebury College score the final four goals of the game in a 6-2 win Saturday.

The Mules drop to 5-4 overall and 1-4 in NESCAC play heading into Wednesday’s non-conference game at Husson. Middlebury is 6-1 overall and 4-1 in the conference.
Megan Fortier scored her 40th career goal and moved to within one point of reaching 100 for her career. She has 40 goals and 19 assists for 99 points after scoring and adding an assist Saturday. Fortier needs three more points to tie Wendy Bonner ’05 for Colby’s all-time career scoring lead at 102 points.
Molly Freeman scored three of Middlebury’s opening four goals. She tallied at 4:29 off a centering pass, but McKayla Blanch tipped in a pass from Fortier to tie the contest at 15:37.
The Mules had little time to celebrate tying the fourth-ranked team in the country. Freeman scored again on a breakaway at 17:45.
Fortier had a blast from 12 yards on the left side for her milestone goal at 28:07. The Mules were tied 2-2 and just 6:53 away from halftime.
Bridget Instrum scored the game-winning goal at 29:25 when she tapped in a pass from Pam Schulman. Freeman scored her third of the first half with just 1:57 to play on another tip-in off a cross from Anna Kenyon. Susanna Baker and Lauren Schweppe had second-half goals.

FORTIER SETS FIELD HOCKEY CAREER SCORING RECORD IN WIN

BANGOR, Maine — Call it a double milestone night for Colby College senior field hockey player Megan Fortier (Falmouth, Maine).

Fortier’s first goal of the night put her over 100 career points and her second made her Colby’s all-time scoring leader in the Mules’ 5-1 non-conference win at Husson University on Wednesday.

Colby improved to 6-4 overall heading into Saturday’s noon start at Wesleyan University. Husson dropped to 4-5 overall.

Fortier is up to 42 goals and 19 assists for 103 career points. Wendy Bonner ’05, a three-time All-American, had 44 goals and 14 assists for 102 career points. Fortier will now aim for Bonner’s career goal scoring record.

Fortier scored her first goal off a penalty corner, with an assist from co-captain Hannah Hearn at 12:07.

Rebecca Moore made it 2-0 Colby with an unassisted goal at 18:47 and teammate Eleanor Fitzgerald followed with her first collegiate goal about three minutes later for a 3-0 margin.

The Eagles had edges in shots (19-15) and penalty corners (16-8) in the game. Husson broke the shutout when Lauren Russell scored with 4:13 to halftime.

Colby made it 4-1 at intermission when McKayla Blanch scored with just 29 seconds to play.

Fortier closed out the scoring with her second goal from Hearn and Anna Rudinski at 55:39.

Sarah Evans stopped five shots in the first half for Colby and Riley Whitmyer played the second half and also made five stops.

Field hockey wins over 14th-ranked Amherst

WATERVILLE, Maine — The Colby College field hockey team started the hardest weekend of the season on a positive note with a much-needed 1-0 victory over 14th-ranked Amherst College on Saturday at Bill Alfond Field.

The Mules move to 7-5 overall and 2-5 in the conference. Colby gets no time to enjoy the victory with Sunday’s 1 p.m. game at second-ranked and unbeaten Bowdoin College on the schedule.
The Mules are in a tie for the eighth and last league playoff spot with Bates College and Wesleyan University. Colby still has to play Bates, but dropped a 1-0 decision at Wesleyan. The three teams are one-half game behind Hamilton College (3-5). Colby will play at Hamilton next Saturday at noon.
Junior forward McKayla Blanch scored the biggest goal of her career at 47:49 off a penalty corner when she tipped in a shot on goal. Megan Fortier and Misha Strage had assists on the play. Fortier had her 20th career assist.
While the Mules received the one important goal, Colby’s defense led by senior Elizabeth Zusi and senior goalie Sarah Evans did their job. Zusi and Evans were honored with Fortier and Strage before the game on Senior Day.
Evans, an All-American two years ago, made 11 saves. She stopped seven shots in the first half when Amherst put on loads of pressure.
Colby 1, Amherst 0
Amherst 0#0–0

Field hockey falls, 1-1 against ranked teams

BRUNSWICK, Maine — A day after beating 14th-ranked Amherst College, the Colby College field hockey team fell 5-1 Sunday to second-ranked Bowdoin College in a tough back-to-back NESCAC weekend of action.

The next three goals between the two teams happened in just 1:01. Nicole Barbieri set up Ganong for Bowdoin’s third goal at 29:06.
Colby responded less than 30 seconds later when Misha Strage scored off a pass from Rebecca Moore, who had intercepted a Bowdoin pass. Moore charged down the right side behind the defense to find Strage.
Ganong tallied her second of the game 37 seconds later, charging down the field off the restart from Colby’s goal. She had her third goal of the game in the second half.

Field hockey falls, still alive for playoff spot

CLINTON, N.Y. — The Colby College field hockey team will have to win Wednesday night and get some help for a chance at a New England Small College Athletic Conference playoff spot after Saturday’s 5-2 loss at Hamilton College.

Field hockey ends season with tough loss

WATERVILLE, Maine — In a playoff atmosphere in the second half, Adah Lindquist scored with just 3:57 left in the game for the only goal of the contest to help Bates College to a 1-0 win over Colby College in NESCAC field hockey Wednesday night at Bill Alfond Field.

Bates (7-8 overall, 3-7 NESCAC) came into the contest only needing a victory over the Mules to advance to the playoffs. The Bobcats earned the eighth seed and will play at top-seeded Bowdoin College on Saturday at 1 p.m. in a quarterfinal game.
Colby (7-8 overall, 2-8 NESCAC) needed some help from Connecticut College and had to beat Bates to make the playoffs. With an earlier 6 p.m. game, Connecticut College eliminated Wesleyan University with a 3-2 victory. The Mules knew by halftime that the second half was going to be like a playoff game, with winner advancing.
The Mules did have the better of the play for the first 10 to 15 minutes of the second half, but the Bobcats settled down and dominated field position in the last 20 minutes.
The pressure Bates put on paid off when an errant Colby pass went to Lindquist, who blasted a hard shot to the right corner of the cage.
The game was fairly even statistically, with both teams recording 11 shots. Each team had seven shots on goal until Lindquist gave the Bobcats the big score.
Bates goaltender Cristina Vega and Colby goalie Sarah Evans both played well. Each goalie made seven saves and many of them were fine stops. Evans stopped a penalty stroke in the opening half.
The game marked the final one for Colby seniors Evans, Megan Fortier, Misha Strage, and Elizabeth Zusi.
Bates 1, Colby 0
Bates 0#1—1
Colby 0#0—0
Scoring summary
2nd half
B: Adah Lindquist, 66:03
Shots: Bates 11, Colby 11. Penalty corners: Bates 5, Colby 3. Goalies: Cristina Vega (Bates, 70:00, 0 GA, 7 saves); Sarah Evans (Colby, 70:00, 1 GA, 7 saves).
