Colgate stifles Big Green, 8-1, behind five points from Sydney Morrow.

HANOVER, N.H. – Colgate women’s hockey earned a dominant ECAC road win on Friday night, bringing down the Big Green, 8-1, for the team’s ninth straight victory. A total of 14 Raiders scored at least one point in the win with four making multi-point contributions. 

“I thought we had a great team win,” sophomore Sydney Morrow said, “We were connected and relentless for the whole 60 minutes, which has been a big goal for us throughout the season.”

Morrow, who tallied her first-career hat trick, racked up a career-high five points on the night, scoring her first goal just over the halfway point of the opening period. Senior Kristýna Kaltounková broke the stalemate just under a minute earlier with her fifth power-play goal of the season, tied for the most in NCAA Division I. 

Sophomore Elyssa Biederman accounted for the third Colgate score of the first period after cleaning up the rebounded shot from Kaitlyn O’Donohoe. The second assist was credited to senior Dara Greig who eclipsed the 100 career point mark with the helper. 

The Raiders put the game out of reach in the second stanza, pouring in four goals in just under 15 minutes of play. The scoring spree marks the most goals scored in a period for the team so far this season. 

Morrow’s unassisted snipe came less than five minutes into the middle period, while first-year Kaia Malachino continued her three-game point streak with a goal at the eight-minute mark. After failing to kill a penalty for the first time in over 36 attempts, Morrow slotted her third goal of the night to push the lead back to five. 

In the waning moments of the second, first-year Emma Pais completed her second-straight multi-point performance with a goal off the assist from Danielle Serdachny. 

O’Donohoe then broke through for the only score of the third period to earn the eighth game of her career with three or more points.
