Colby tops Plymouth State in women’s lacrosse

            WATERVILLE, Maine - The 17th-ranked Colby College women's lacrosse team scored eight goals in the opening 9:13 of play Tuesday afternoon on the way to a 22-2 non-conference victory over Plymouth State University at Bill Alfond Field.

            All-American Kate Sheridan (Hingham, Mass.) had four goals and four assists for Colby to put her season totals at 34 goals and 22 assists for 56 points in just 10 games. Sheridan, a junior midfielder, went over 50 career assists and now has 123 goals and 51 assists for 174 points.

            Becky Julian (South Windsor, Conn.) added three goals and has 20 on the season. Amy Campbell (North Andover, Mass.) and Caroline Atwater (Catonsville, Md.) each had two goals and one assist, while Heather Nickerson (Falmouth, Mass.) also had a pair of goals.

            Plymouth State (1-4) received goals from sophomores Kerry D'Ambroise (Lowell, Mass.) and Kalie Judd (Peabody, Mass.). The Panthers tied the game at 1-1 with 28:40 left in the first half, but Colby scored 10 goals over the next 11:39 to pull away for good.

            The Panthers return to Little East Conference action on Thursday with a 6:30 p.m. contest at Keene State.  The game was originally scheduled to be played in Plymouth, but conditions at PSU's Arold Field forced the contest to be moved to Keene.
