Oct. 27, 2006

Box Score

HAMILTON, N.Y. - Carly McNaughton's goal 3:28 into overtime gave Colgate a 4-3 win over Yale Friday night at Starr Rink. The goal overshadowed a third-period comeback by the Bulldogs, who trailed 3-1 with just over five minutes to play but rallied to tie the game on goals by sophomore forward Kristen Stupay and senior forward Jenna Spring.

Yale (0-2, 0-1 ECAC) got on the board first when junior Ann-Renée Guillemette, moved up from defense to forward, picked up her third career goal 13:27 into the game. Senior forward Christina Sharun and freshman forward Caroline Murphy assisted on the play.

The Bulldogs were barely done celebrating that goal before Colgate (1-4-1, 1-0 ECAC) evened the affair 23 seconds later on an Elin Brown goal.

After the first intermission the Raiders began taking control. They outshot the Bulldogs 9-4 in the second period, and Katie Stewart knocked one past junior goalie Shivon Zilis with 3:29 left before intermission.

Stewart scored again 9:09 into the third period to seemingly give the Raiders command, but Yale began battling back with Stupay's power-play tally, assisted by senior forward Sheila Zingler, at 14:50. Spring scored just over a minute later, assisted by freshman forward Denise Soesilo and senior forward Regan Gilbride, to tie the score at three.

Colgate's Brook Wheeler, who finished with 18 saves, stopped the lone Yale shot of overtime. Zilis stopped two to finish with 28 saves before McNaughton ended it.

Yale returns to the ice Saturday afternoon against Cornell. The Big Red topped Brown 3-2 Friday night in Ithaca.
