WATERVILLE, Maine --- Stephanie Scarpato (Barnstable/Osterville, Mass.), who helped Colby College advance in the playoffs Saturday, was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Women's Hockey Player of the Week for the week ending March 2.

Scarpato, a first-year forward, had two of Colby's three goals to lift the fourth-seeded Mules to a 3-1 win against fifth-seeded Connecticut College at Alfond Rink. After a scoreless opening period, Scarpato got the first goal of the game in the second period and later added an insurance goal in the third period.

Despite missing six games with an injury, Scarpato is third on Colby in scoring with eight goals and 11 assists for 19 points.

The Mules (14-8-3) will play at top-seeded Middlebury College in a NESCAC semifinal game Saturday at 1 p.m. The championship game is 1 p.m. Sunday at Middlebury.
