COLBY: KLEIN TOP DEFENDER, FIVE MULES ON ALL-NESCAC TEAM

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Emilie Klein (North Andover, Mass.) earned the New England Small College Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Year on Thursday.

Klein was one of five Mules to earn All-NESCAC honors. She and teammate Lexie Perticone (Darien, Conn.) were both selected to the first team. Jackie Brokaw (Waterbury, Conn.), Sasha Fritts (Darien, Conn.), and Melinda Edie (Dedham, Mass.) all made the second team.

Klein leads the NESCAC in caused turnovers (32) and has 29 draw controls and 28 ground balls. She is having her best offensive season with 12 goals and 11 assists for 23 points. Klein, an All-Region Second Team selection last year, has 33 career goals, 18 assists, 90 ground balls, 91 draw controls, and 84 caused turnovers.

Perticone has 63 goals and 58 assists for 121 career points in her four years. Her sister, Hollis Perticone, was named the NESCAC Player of the Year for Middlebury College.

Brokaw, a second team Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association All-American last year, has 23 ground balls and 15 caused turnovers this season on defense. She was on the All-NESCAC First Team last year and was the conference's Co-Rookie of the Year in her first season.

COLBY, MIDDLEBURY READY FOR 10TH PLAYOFF MEETING

WATERVILLE, Maine -- The Colby College and Middlebury College women's lacrosse teams have one of the better playoff rivalries in the New England Small College Athletic Conference since the league started a postseason tournament in 2001.

A new chapter in the rivalry will take place Saturday when the fifth-ranked and fourth-seeded Mules (13-3 overall) play at sixth-ranked and top-seeded Middlebury (13-3) in a NESCAC semifinal at noon. Hamilton College and Trinity College play in the other semifinal at 2:30 p.m., with the championship game set for Sunday at 1 p.m. at Middlebury.

The Panthers hold a 5-4 playoff series edge over the Mules, but Colby has won four of the past five playoff games. The Mules, winners of 11 straight games, also have a 10-7 regular season victory against Middlebury.

Colby's greatest playoff wins against the Panthers came in semifinals games in 2008 and 2009. The Mules won 10-8 at Middlebury in 2008 on the way to a NESCAC title. A year later at Tufts University, Colby won 17-12 on the way to a second straight championship.

Middlebury's best playoff win over the Mules came in the 2007 title game, a 10-8 victory for the Panthers at home.

The two teams have combined for 10 of the 16 league titles. The Panthers have eight championships and the Mules have the title wins in 2008 and 2009. Colby has been to five championship games.

Colby advanced to the semifinal game with a thrilling 8-7 overtime win against Wesleyan University on Saturday. Madeleine Hatch got the deciding goal to put the Mules in the NESCAC Final Four for the first time since 2014.

Emilie Klein and Lexie Perticone were both named to the All-NESCAC First Team on Thursday. Klein, the NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year, has a league-best 32 caused turnovers. Perticone is first in the conference in assists (25) and third in points (56).

Sasha Fritts, Jackie Brokaw, and Melinda Edie made the All-NESCAC Second Team for the Mules. Fritts is fourth in the conference in goals (39), Brokaw was an All-American defender last year, and Edie is one of the top rookies in the league this year on defense.

The Panthers, who won 8-7 over Amherst College in a quarterfinal last Saturday, are led in scoring by Mary O'Connell (55 points) and Emma McDonagh (34 goals).

The goalie battle should be a good one. The Mules' Izzy Scribano has a 50.5 save percentage and a 7.04 goals against average, while Kate Furber is also playing well with a 7.03 goals against average.

COLBY WOMEN'S LACROSSE ADVANCES TO NESCAC TITLE GAME

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- For the sixth time in the proud history of Colby College women's lacrosse, the Mules are headed to the New England Small College Athletic Conference championship game.

Colby won its 12th straight game after scoring the final two goals of the contest in a 10-9 win over defending national champion and top-seeded Middlebury College on Saturday at Kohn Field.

The fourth-seeded Mules advance to Sunday's 1 p.m. championship game against third-seeded Trinity College. The Bantams took a 12-3 win over Hamilton College in the other semifinal. Trinity won 11-10 in overtime against the Mules back on March 10 on Bill Alfond Field.

"I think what I'm most impressed with is the resiliency of this team. We never give up and never stop believing," Colby head coach Karen Henning said. "Multiple players stepped up when we need them most. I'm so proud of them."

Colby (14-3 overall) will be looking for its third NESCAC title after winning in 2008 and 2009. The Mules are 2-3 in championship games, losing in 2007, 2010, and 2011. Colby improved to 19-14 in the NESCAC tourney since the league started a playoff system in 2001.

The Mules led or were tied for the first 50 minutes of the game. However, the Panthers received back-to-back goals from MG Gately and Jenna McNicholas to take a 9-8 lead with 9:59 left in the game.

Colby never was rattled and played with confidence in the closing moments. Emilie Klein, the NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year, did the job offensively when she converted a free-position shot with 6:24 left to tie the game at 9-9.

Both teams had opportunities over the next four minutes to take the lead. Sasha Fritts was fouled at the perfect spot on the right side of the circle for a left-handed player to get off a good shot on a free-position. Fritts, who often takes one step and fires on her free-position shots, raced hard at the goal, switched hands to righty, and tallied with 2:18 remaining for the game-winning goal.

The Panthers had two shots hit the goal post in a span of 14 seconds at 1:20 remaining and 1:06 to play. After a turnover by the Mules, Izzy Scribano made a save on Panther leading scorer Mary O'Connell with 14 seconds left.

Colby fell behind 3-1 to the Panthers in the regular season meeting, but this time got off to a fine start. Kendall Smith scored from Klein and Perticone made it 2-0 off a free-position shot.

The Panthers battled back with two straight free-position goals by Sara DiCenso and Bea Eppier to tie the contest.

Colby scored four straight goals for the largest lead of the game at 6-2. Perticone had two goals and one assist in the 4-0 scoring run. Smith had the other two goals.

"The Middlebury goalie played really well," Henning said. "We talked about making sure we took good shots and finishing on our shots."

Middlebury fought back again with three straight scores to end the first half. Hollis Pertione, the younger sister of Lexie Perticone, Eppier, and Casey O'Neill made it 6-5 at intermission.

Fritts scored an important goal with 23:46 left in the game from Lexie Perticone to put the Mules back up 7-5. Eppier and McConnell scored three minutes apart to tie the game at 7-7. Smith scored her fourth goal of the game off a pass from Gemma Bready to put the Mules back up by one goal.

Smith is up to 42 goals and five assists for 47 points this season. Lexie Perticone had three goals and two assists to raise her season-best totals to 34 goals and 27 assists for 61 points. Fritts also went over 40 goals and has 41 and five assists for 46 points.

The Mules helped their own cause by winning the draw control (14-7) battle and were 4-for-8 on free-position shots.

Middlebury goalie Kate Furber kept her team in the game with 12 saves, including seven stops in the second half to help the Panthers go ahead.

Scribano had three ground balls to go with two saves for Colby. Georgia Lubrano finished with two caused turnovers and two ground balls. Lubrano, one of the fastest Mules, played a major part in Colby's clears in the final 30 minutes. Klein had three draw controls, one caused turnover, and one ground ball.

Colby midfielder Madeleine Hatch had six of her team's 14 draw controls. The Mules had a 9-3 edge in draws in the opening half.

"Maddie, Emilie, and Grace (Crowell) were huge on the draw today," Henning said. "We really needed possession against a very good Middlebury team."

Hollis Perticone had one goal, three ground balls, two caused turnovers, and two draw controls for Middlebury (13-4). Furber added two caused turnovers and four ground balls, while Alex White had three caused turnovers and two ground balls.
