BRUNSWICK, Maine --- Genevieve Triganne had 38 saves and the Colby College women's hockey team scored three goals on the power play to earn a 4-4 tie with ninth-ranked Bowdoin College on Friday in women's hockey.

Triganne had 14 saves in the third period and added seven more in overtime for the Mules (1-3-2). Bowdoin goalie Samantha Schwager only made 10 saves in the game.
