After being swept in a pair of games last week at Boston University, the Wayne State Warriors were looking for some kind of a boost as their season long road trip continued.
They certainly got it over the weekend as they rolled into Colgate’s Starr Rink and dominated the home team in a pair of convincing wins.
Friday night was the Delayne Brian show again as the junior stopped all 31 shots she faced for her second shutout of the season and a Warriors 4-0 victory.
Julie Hebert started the scoring with her first of the season at 4:31 of the opening period.
Lauren Ragen, Alyssa Baldin, Gina Buquet all added power-play markers and Jill Szandzik tied a school record with four assists.
Lisa Plenderleith stopped 24 shots for the Raiders.
The Warriors started and ended hot on Saturday as they completed the sweep of the Raiders with a 5-3 win.
Baldin, Veronique Laramee-Paquette, and Buquet all notched first period markers to put the Warriors up by a comfortable 3-0 lead.
Colgate stormed back with three straight goals of their own to tie the score at 3.
Taylor Volpe got Colgate on the board at 10:29 of the second and then Brittany Phillips and Jenna Klynstra scored less then two minutes apart in the third.
Wayne State took advantage of a pressing Colgate team with Szandzik and Julie Ingratta picking up power-play goals to ice the game.
Delayne Brian stopped another 40 in net for WSU and Kimberly Sass turned aside 24 for Colgate.
The Green and Gold will conclude a eight-game road trip and start the CHA portion of their schedule with a pair of games on Nov. 11 & 12 at Robert Morris.
