WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby College senior forward Becky Julian (South Windsor, Conn.), who had two game-winning goals last week, was honored as the New England Small College Athletic Conference Women’s Hockey Player of the Week on Monday.

Julian had three goals and one assist in a 2-1 week for the Mules. She started out with the decisive goal with 2:55 remaining in a 6-5 non-conference victory at University of Massachusetts at Boston. Julian had a goal and an assist in a 6-4 loss to Trinity College on Friday, and then netted an overtime goal Saturday against Trinity in a 3-2 win to help the Mules clinch a home playoff game in the NESCAC playoffs.

In the latest NESCAC statistics, Julian ranks in a tie for third place in scoring with 19 goals and nine assists for 28 points. She is second in the league in goals and tied for second in game-winning goals (4). Julian has 65 goals and 45 assists for 110 career points.

The Mules (11-10-3) earned the fourth seed in the NESCAC playoffs and will play host to fifth-seeded Bowdoin College this Saturday at 4 p.m. at Alfond Rink.
