Wayne State head coach Jim Fetter earned his 50th career win on Saturday afternoon when the Warriors blanked visiting Colgate 5-0 before a crowd of over 400 fans in Taylor.
Fetter is the winningest coach in the program's history.
The Warriors' offense exploded early, with the team's first three goals coming in the first period. Ashley King scored an unassisted goal less than two minutes into the game. Later in the period, Sam Poyton and Melissa Boal (pictured) scored goals within three minutes of each other. Lindsay DiPietro assisted on both goals, bringing her total assists to a team-leading 17.
Poyton struck again five minutes into the third period with some help from Tegan Schroeder and Danielle Wilson. Laura Monk rounded out the Warriors' scoring, tapping in a Brandi Frakie pass with less than five minutes left in the game.
Tiffany Thompson stopped all 18 shots for the team’s first shutout of the season.
Saturday's win was particularly sweet after Friday's 4-1 loss to the Raiders. Schroeder scored the Warriors' only goal, with Frakie and Tina Vanderhoeven earning assists. Thomspon recorded 18 saves in Friday's game.
The Warriors' record now stands at 8-12-0. They remain in Detroit next weekend, when they face Mercyhurst at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. Both games begin at 3:30, and are part of a double-header series with the men's team.
