WATERVILLE, Maine ­ Colby College senior forward Josh Reber (Edina, Minn.) became the 14th player in school history to reach 100 career points as the Mules took a 5-2 victory over Skidmore College in men’s hockey on Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Reber has had most of his points passing the puck, but he got his 100th point on a goal at 7:29 of the first period to give Colby (2-2) a 2-0 lead. The Mules had taken a 1-0 lead at 4:17 when Mike Butler (Saint John, New Brunswick) scored short-handed off a pass from captain Ryan Chrenek (Grande Prairie, Alberta). Reber’s goal came off passes from T.J. Kelley (Ridgefield, Conn.) and Billy Crinnion (Smithtown, N.Y.).

Phil McDavitt (Duxbury, Mass.) got Skidmore (1-2-2) back in the game with the only two goals of the second period. He tallied at 4:04 off assists from Tim Daley (Wilton, N.Y.) and Mike Gibbons (Braintree, Mass.) and made it 3-2 on the power play from Daley and Matt Czerkowicz (Blackstone, Mass.) at 14:49.
