HAMILTON — Another dominating performance by the Colgate women’s hockey team led to a 7-1 victory over Syracuse on Thursday.
The Raiders got the scoring going right away as just 40 seconds into the game Dara Greig slotted one in off a rebound from Tanner Gate’s shot.
Colgate doubled its lead when Katie Chan found Sammy Smigliani on a breakaway with just 15 seconds remaining in the period.
In the second, the Raiders found the back of the net four times, starting with a goal from Darcie Lappan. Just over two minutes later Syracuse got one back to cut the lead to 3-1.
The rest of the period would be all Colgate as Smigliani netted her second of the game. Danielle Serdachny followed that by getting in on the action with two of her own as the Raiders took a 6-1 lead into the second intermission.
Noemi Neubauerova then put one in with 12 minutes remaining in the third period to make it 7-1 Raiders.
As a team, the Raiders outshot the Orange 24-15.
Hannah Murphy made her second start in goal for Colgate, recording 14 saves.
