HAMILTON, N.Y. - The University of Connecticut women's ice hockey team fell to Colgate, 5-3, Friday night. The Huskies dropped to 0-3-1 on the season, while the Raiders picked up their first win and improved to 1-4-0 overall.

After a scoreless first period, Colgate broke the ice 1:02 into the second on an unassisted goal by Jenna Klynstra. Midway through the period, Taylor Craig scored to extend the Raider lead to 2-0.

UConn answered back with a goal just over a minute later when sophomore Kayla Campero (Wallingford, Conn.), assisted by classmates Rachel Farrel (Cheshire, Conn.) and Sarah MacDonnell (Quispamsis, Que.), netted her first goal of the season.

In the third, Colgate lifted its lead to 4-1 on back-to-back goals by Melissa Kueber and Rachel Walsh, less than a minute apart.

Twenty eight second after Walsh's goal, freshman Brittany Berisoff (Kelowna, B.C.) cut the lead to two with her second goal of the season. Senior captain Kelly Horan (Methuen, Mass.) dished out her team-leading fourth assist of the season on the score. The Huskies drew to within one with less than two minutes to play in the game when senior defenseman Maude Blain (Magog, Que.) converted on a penalty shot to make it a 4-3 game.

With only seven seconds remaining on the clock, Miriam Drubel put the game away with an empty-net goal.

In her third start of the year, freshman goaltender Elaine Chuli (Waterford, Ont.) made 34 saves, while her counterpart Susan Allen made 25.

For the game, UConn was outshot by Colgate, 39-28.
