WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College, ranked third in the country, had seven players earn Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III All-Region honors on Friday.

The Mules had more players than any other team in the Pilgrim Region and Berkshire Region. With the large amount of women's lacrosse teams in the region, the IWLCA separates New England into two regions.

Jackie Brokaw, Sasha Fritts, Emilie Klein, and Lexie Perticone made the Pilgrim Region First Team for the Mules (15-3 overall). Melinda Edie, Georgia Lubrano, and Kendall Smith were on the second team.

Brokaw, a junior defender, earned her third straight all-region honor. She made the second team as a first-year and earned All-American honors last year after making the first team. She has 25 ground balls, 19 caused turnovers, and five draw controls this season. Brokaw has career numbers of 79 ground balls, 58 caused turnovers, and 16 draw controls.

Fritts is on the all-region team for the second time after a second team selection in 2015. The junior attacker is having a breakout season with 43 goals and eight assists for 51 points. Fritts has 79 goals and 17 assists for 96 career points to go along with 36 ground balls.

Klein also was on the all-region second team last year and is on the first team in 2017 as a midfielder. She was on the All-NESAC First Team and was selected by the league coaches as the Defensive Player of the Year in 2017. Klein has 17 goals, 12 assists, a league-best 35 caused turnovers, 35 draw controls, and 30 ground balls. She has career numbers of 38 goals, 19 assists, 97 draw controls, 92 ground balls, and 87 caused turnovers.

Perticone, an attacker, was on the All-NESCAC First Team. She ranks first in the league in assists (28) and third in total points (62). Perticone is the third Colby player to make all-region first team after being on the second team last year. She has 66 goals and 61 assists for 127 career points.

Lubrano is on the all-region second team for the second straight year as a defender. She is having her best season with 24 ground balls and 18 caused turnovers. Lubrano, one of the fastest players on the team and key in clearing, has 38 ground balls and 31 caused turnovers in the last two years.

Edie, a third Colby defender on the all-region teams, was one of the top rookies in the NESCAC. She was one of just six first-year players to earn all-region honors in the Pilgrim and Berkshire Regions. Edie started all 18 games and has 26 ground balls, 16 draw controls, and 15 caused turnovers.

Smith was on the all-region second team for the second straight year. She is tied with Fritts in scoring with 51 points on 45 goals and six assists. Smith has 86 goals and 32 assists for 118 career points. She was the NESCAC Player of the Week for last week.

The seven players selected is a record for the Mules. The limit for nominations accepted by the IWLCA was moved from a maximum of six to eight this year. The IWLCA All-American teams will be announced on Friday, May 19.

WATERVILLE, Maine -- The third-ranked Colby College women's lacrosse team has been able to hold eighth-ranked Middlebury College to nine goals or less in two straight victories over the Panthers this season.

The NESCAC champion Mules play the Panthers for the third time in 22 days when Colby (15-3 overall) plays in the NCAA Division III Tournament second round on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Middlebury. The Panthers took a 13-1 win over Plymouth State University on Saturday in a first round game.

Defense and draw controls were both a key when the Mules took a 10-9 victory over Middlebury in the NESCAC semifinals last Saturday. The Mules have allowed just 15 goals to the defending national champions, including six in a 9-6 setback at Colby's Bill Alfond Field on April 22.

Keeping one top scorer without a goal or an assist helped Colby in the first two games. Mary O'Connell was held scoreless in the first game and Emma McDonagh did not have a point in the second game.

The Mules have three Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association All-Region selections on defense this season. Senior tri-captain Georgia Lubrano, junior All-American Jackie Brokaw, and first-year Melinda Edie were honored.

Emilie Klein, the NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year, is the all-region selection in the midfield and leads the league in caused turnovers (35). Gemma Bready had an outstanding defensive game and was tough on draw controls in the second win over the Panthers. Madeleine Hatch had six draw controls in the second game for Colby.

Colby's attackers have been consistent all season. Lexie Perticone (34 goals, 28 assists), Sasha Fritts (43 goals, 8 assists), and Kendall Smith (45 goals, 6 assists) were named all-region and have combined for 122 goals.

The Mules had a 14-7 advantage in draw controls in the NESCAC game, but the Panthers had an 11-6 edge in the game at Colby.

Middlebury will be tough to beat for a third time in one season. Due to lack of hotel space in the area because of major events, Colby missed out on hosting a second round game despite winning the league title.

The Mules, though, are 7-0 in road games this year and 13-2 in the past two seasons. The winner of Sunday's game will take on the winner of the Brockport State/Denison game on May 20.

O'Connell has 34 goals and 25 assists for 59 points, while McDonagh has 34 goals and 12 assists for 46 points. Hollis Perticone, the sister of Lexie and the NESCAC Player of the Year, has 30 goals, eight assists, a league-best 70 draw controls, 27 ground balls, and 19 caused turnovers.

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- The third-ranked Colby College women's lacrosse team lost Sunday's game to Middlebury College in the same way the Mules beat the Panthers eight days ago in a league semifinal.

Middlebury (16-4 overall) scored the final two goals of the game to turn a 9-8 deficit into a 10-9 victory in the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. The NESCAC champion Mules (16-4) scored the final two goals of the game in last Saturday's league semifinal to pull out a 10-9 win.

Colby led 8-5 with 23:19 left in the game and Middlebury was playing without NESCAC Player of the Year Hollis Perticone, who had to sit after registering two yellow cards in the first half.

The Panthers, however, won the draw control battle (13-8) and had 16 turnovers to Colby's 21.

Izzy Scribano finished with 10 saves, including some fine stops on free-position shots for Colby. Middlebury goalie Kate Furber stopped six shots in the first half, but had no saves and allowed six goals in the final 30 minutes.

Colby held the Panthers to 10 goals or less in all three games this year. First-year Kelsey Otley had a strong game with four caused turnovers, three ground balls, and one draw control. All-American defender Jackie Brokaw added three caused turnovers and three ground balls, while Gemma Bready finished with three caused turnovers and two ground balls. Emilie Klein reached 100 career draw controls by winning three for the Mules.

Evie Keating finished with four caused turnovers and five ground balls for the Panthers. Alex White had three draw controls, two caused turnovers, and two ground balls.

The Mules had been able to shut down one of the top two scorers in their previous two wins over the Panthers. However, Emma McDonagh had four goals and one assist, while teammate Mary O'Connell finished with two goals and three assists.

Kendall Smith led the Mules with three goals and one assist. Bready had another big game at Middlebury with three goals. Klein had two goals and Perticone dished three assists.

Perticone finished her Colby career with 66 goals and 64 assists for 130 points. Klein had 40 career goals, 19 assists, 100 draw controls, 93 ground balls, and 87 caused turnovers.

Bready scored on a player-up situation with 7:13 left in the first half to make it a 3-3 game. McDonagh, though, scored on a free-position to give the Panthers a 4-3 lead at intermission. The Panthers did lose Hollis Perticone to her second yellow card with 1:31 left to halftime.

The Mules had a 5-1 scoring advantage in the first 6:41 of the second half to take an 8-5 lead. Bready tied the game on a free-position shot one minute into the half. Klein cut to the goal and received a nice pass from Smith to put the Mules up for the first time at 5-4 with 25:57 remaining.

Draw controls became a major part of the game in the next few minutes. The Panthers scored just 15 seconds later when O'Connell tallied from McDonagh to make it 5-5.

The Mules won the draws next and it paid off. Smith scored just 17 seconds after O'Connell's goal off a pass from Perticone for a 6-5 Mule lead. Colby scored again 1:23 later when Fritts drew a double team and found Madeleine Hatch open in front for a 7-5 lead. The Mules seemed to have all the momentum when Smith took a pass from Kelsey Bowen and made a nice catch, turn, and shoot for the score with 23:19 to play.

The Panthers used a free-position goal from McDonagh, a player-up score from McDonagh from O'Connell, and a score from Emma Johns with 12 minutes to play to tie the game at 8-8.

Bready put Colby up 9-8 with 6:38 to play off Perticone's third assist of the day.

Turnovers were the story in the final 6:38 after Bready's goal. The Mules had three costly turnovers and the Panthers had none. Colby had no shots after Bready's score.

Scribano did make two clutch saves in the final 4:25, including a free-position stop.

O'Connell scored unassisted with 3:02 remaining to knot the game at 9-9 after a Mule turnover. After a Scribano save with 1:15 left, the Mules had another costly turnover to give the Panthers another possession. Jenna McNicholas scored with 21.7 seconds remaining on a high shot off a pass from O'Connell. White had another key draw control and the Panthers were able to run out the time.
