The Wayne State Warriors finally cracked the win column with a solid road sweep of the Colgate Raiders over the weekend.
The Warriors (2-2-0) scored four goals in just over 20 minutes in Friday's opener and held on for a 4-3 victory in Hamilton, New York.
Gina Buquet started the scoring with her second of the season in the second period.
Julie Ingratta, Adrianna Pfeffer, and Veronique Laramee-Paquette all recorded their first markers of the season to push WSU to a 4-2 lead, late in the third period.
Colgate pulled their goaltender and scored an extra attacker goal with just 26-seconds remaining, but that was as close as the Raiders would get.
Beth Rotenberg, Amanda Kirwan, and Brittany Phillips scored for the home team.
Delayne Brian (pictured) started between the pipes for the Green and Gold and stopped 22 shots. Kimberly Sass turned away 26 for Colgate.
Wayne State took advantage of a Colgate miscue on Saturday afternoon and notched a stunning 1-0 overtime win at Starr Rink.
Colgate forward Brittany Phillips went to the box for holding at the 19:02 mark of the third period. Then, just 13 seconds into overtime, Veronique Laramee-Paquette rifled in a power-play tally to give the Warriors the win.
The goal was the fastest overtime goal in school history and gave WSU a 11-10-0 lead in the all-time series against Colgate.
Gina Buquet and Jenaya Townsend picked up the assists.
Delayne Brian stopped 22 shots for her second shutout of the season and third of her career.
Lisa Plenderleith took the hard loss after stopping 30 shots for Colgate.
The Wayne State Warriors will conclude their four-game road trip with a pair of games at Bemidji State next weekend.
