WATERVILLE, Maine --- Caroline Chessare scored the lone goal for the Colby College women's hockey team in a 10-1 loss to Amherst College in NESCAC play Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Geneva Lloyd, the NESCAC Player of the Year last season, went over 100 career points with two goals and four assists for Amherst. Lloyd, a senior defender and a captain, has 38 goals and 64 assists for 102 career points in 92 games. She has eight goals and seven assists this season to lead Amherst (6-4 overall, 4-1 NESCAC).

Amherst scored two goals in seven seconds to take a 2-0 lead at the first intermission. Besides the quick goals, the rest of the period was fairly evenly matched. Ashley Salerno scored at 7:10 of the period on a long shot from the right point. The Lord Jeffs quickly won the ensuing face-off and Lloyd scored from the left point on another long shot just seven seconds later.

The Lord Jeffs scored just 40 seconds into the second period for a 3-0 margin. Amherst immediately put pressure on and got a goal from Tori Salmon when she hammered home a rebound off the original shot from Lloyd.

Amherst went up 4-0 just two minutes into the period when Kaitlyn McInnis fought hard in front and knocked in another shot off a rebound from a shot by Eileen Harris.

Erin Martin made it a 5-0 game at 3:04 when her blast from between the circles ripped the net. Lloyd scored her 100th point on the power play when she picked up an assist along with Megan Doyen on a goal by Salerno at 18:39.

Madeline Tank tallied 2:03 into the third period for a 7-0 lead, but Colby (4-6, 0-5 NESCAC) did answer when Chessare had an unassisted goal at 3:04.

Doyen, Anne Gillard, and Lloyd had the other goals in the final 12 minutes for Amherst.

Kerri Stuart stopped 22 shots for Amherst.
