WATERVILLE, Maine ---­ Amy Campbell (North Andover, Mass.) finished with a goal and an assist and goaltender Liz Fontaine (Wilbraham, Mass.) earned a win in her first collegiate start as Colby College took a 3-1 win over St. Joseph’s College in non-conference field hockey Wednesday night at Bill Alfond Field.

Campbell leads Colby (4-8) in scoring with seven goals and two assists for 16 points. She had the assist on the Mules’ opening goal by Mollie Kimmel (Madison, Conn.) on a penalty corner with 23:30 left in the first half.

St. Joseph’s (8-6) tied the game when Kayla Nowell (Bridgton, Maine) tallied off an assist from Jessica Baker (Scarborough, Maine) with 6:20 to intermission.

The Mules made it 2-1 and got the game-winning goal just 2:09 after the Monks’ goal on an unassisted score by Chelsea Rosenheimer (Nashotah, Wisc.) off another penalty corner. Campbell made it 3-1 about eight minutes into the second half from a pass by MaryClaire McGovern (Stowe, Vt.).

Fontaine, a first-year player, got her first action of the season and made three saves. Meanwhile, St. Joseph’s goaltender Kathleen Simoes (Wakefield, Mass.) had 10 stops.

Colby plays at Connecticut College on Saturday at 11 a.m., while the Monks play host to Becker College at 1 p.m. Sunday.
