Colby Shuts Down Amherst, Dotchin Scores Two

— Colby improved to 11-1-1 with a 5-0 shutout victory over visiting Amherst (4-12) on Saturday, behind goals from four different players and a combined shutout by first-year goaltenders Sarah Webster and Lynn Hasdey.

Junior tri-captain Heidi Alexander was one of the lone bright spots for the Jeffs, turning away 40 shots in defeat.

Amherst held the White Mules in check early on as the game remained scoreless through the first 17:30, until Colby sophomore Christina Dotchin finally cracked the scoring column off a centering pass from junior forward Jill Young.

The hosts added another tally 10:26 into second period when Dotchin fed a wide-open Carrie Swiderski for a wrister in front of the net.

Colby then cemented the win with a trio of goals in the third period. Junior Jill Young ignited the barrage with a goal just 2:46 after the intermission, before Dotchin added her second goal of the game 3:31 later. Sophomore Kate Sweeney then capped the scoring with a nifty feed from first-year Caitlin Krause to set the final score at 5-0.
