WATERVILLE, Maine --- Laura Anning (Ingramport, Nova Scotia) had three goals and one assist and teammate Andrea Fuwa (Wilmette, Ill.) scored her first two collegiate goals as the Colby College women's hockey team took an 8-1 victory over University of Southern Maine in non-conference play Tuesday night at Alfond Rink.

Anning, a junior forward, has scored seven goals against USM (2-4) in two games this season. She had four goals in a 5-1 victory over the Huskies in Gorham.
