WATERVILLE, Maine --- Heather Quadir (Medfield, Mass.) continued her hot start to the season with three goals and one assist to power the Colby College field hockey team to a 5-0 non-conference win over St. Joseph's College on Wednesday night at Bill Alfond Field.

Quadir has five goals and four assists for 14 points in Colby's 3-1 start to the season. She scored the first three goals of the game and added the assist on the fourth score.

The Mules, who play host to Williams College at 1 p.m. Saturday, went ahead for good when Quadir tallied at 12:36 off a pass from Sally Klose (McLean, Va.). Colby went up 2-0 at the halftime break when Lucy Gerrity (Cumberland, Maine) picked up her first collegiate point with an assist on Quadir's second goal with 7:08 to play.

Quadir scored just 5:19 into the second half on a short blast from the right side of the goal. She took a pass from Ashley Wagner (Sudbury, Mass.), closed in on goal, and ripped the shot past St. Joseph's goaltender Meaghan Johnson (Portland, Maine).

First-year forward Courtney Erskine (Turner, Maine) got her second goal of the season when she pounded home a shot from immediately in front of the goal off a cross by Quadir.

First-year midfielder Connie Jangro (Reading, Mass.) got her first collegiate goal on a short shot off a pass from Wagner.

Colby goalies Liz Fontaine (Wilbraham, Mass.) and Casey Atwater (Baltimore, Md.) combined for three saves to earn the shutout. Johnson had seven saves for the Monks.
