13 different Raiders tally a point in fourth-straight win.

Hamden, Conn. – Elyssa Biederman and Sydney Morrow put in two points each and headlined a group of 13 different Raiders who notched a point in Friday night’s 5-0 victory against No. 6 Quinnipiac. The triumph is Colgate’s first win in Hamden in nearly two years, most recently defeating the Bobcats on the road on Jan. 28, 2022, in a 4-3 overtime thriller. 

“Anytime you can get a win on the road against a really talented opponent it feels good,” assistant coach Breanne Wilson-Bennett said. “It was definitely a great team win. It was nice to spread the wealth and now a lot of players have a lot of confidence moving forward.”

First-year Madeline Palumbo kicked off the lamp-lighting party by scoring her third goal in as many games midway through the first period. Neena Brick picked up a secondary assist by winning the faceoff in the Colgate defensive zone which kicked out to Gwen Eichfeld near center ice. She poked the puck down the right side where Palumbo was able to track it down and beat the goalie five-hole for the Raiders’ first point of the night. 

The NCAA points leader Kristýna Kaltounková dug deep in her bag of tricks for Colgate’s second goal, faking a pass right before spinning back left and firing another shot between the goalie’s legs. 

Also in the second frame, Dara Greig danced between multiple Bobcat defenders before finding nylon in the right corner for her 11th goal of the season. 

Colgate scored twice in the opening five minutes of the final stanza on a power play goal from Biederman and an even-strength snipe off the stick of Danielle Serdachny. 

In net for the Raiders, Kayle Osborne made 19 saves and earned her fifth shutout of the season in Colgate’s fourth straight win.
