WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's hockey team led 2-0 at one point, but second-ranked Middlebury College scored three goals in the final 10 minutes of the game to pull out a 5-2 victory in New England Small College Athletic Conference play Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Lacey Farrell (Greenwich, Conn.) scored with 9:46 remaining for the eventual game-winning goal for Middlebury (7-1). Karen Levin (Morton Grove, Ill.) added an insurance goal with 2:01 remaining and then Abby Kurtz-Phelan (Denver, Colo.) scored an empty net goal for the final tally.
