Cards "Play for the Cure" at Colby but Come up One Goal Short Despite Marker by Allie Lynch '11
Despite Allie Lynch's '11 (#23, photo) perfectly executed corner strike with Jamie Thabault '11 initiating the play and Emily Wenzel '10 making the stop in the 33rd minute to tie the game at intermission, Colby scored with 27 minutes remaining and made it stand up for a 2-1 victory Sat., Oct. 4. Wesleyan ended its scoreless drought with Lynch's tally as the team had dropped three consecutive 1-0 decisions prior to the trip to Colby. Breen McDonald '10 roamed well in net, making six saves, some of them well out from the cage. The game featured a lot of pink as the teams were "Playing for the Cure", dedicating the action to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. It was part of a NESCAC-wide initiative and funds were collected at the contest to benefit the Komen Foundation. Wesleyan will travel to Eastern Conn. Thurs., Oct. 9 for its next start.
