BANGOR, Maine --- Grace McVey had three goals and two assists and teammate Dana Swaffield added two goals and two assists for sixth-ranked Colby College in an easy 20-2 non-conference women's lacrosse win over Husson University on Tuesday night.

Colby heads into a big weekend of New England Small College Athletic Conference play. The Mules (7-0 overall) will play host to Wesleyan University at noon Saturday and then entertain top-ranked Trinity College on Sunday at noon at Bill Alfond Field.

McVey had all three of her goals in the first half to help the Mules to a 14-1 lead at the break and dished both of her assists in the second half. Swaffield had all four of her points in the first half.

The Mules' Paige Pearson added two goals and one assist, while Catherine Kahl had one goal and two assists. Katie Griffin, Sarah Lux, and Alex Mintz each had one goal and one assist. Abby Hatch, Lucy Gerrity, Lindsey McKenna, Hilary Barr, Tess Petesch, and Abby Hooper had one goal apiece. Colby defenders Lisa Hoopes, Meg Mooney, and Sarah Large also got into the scoring column with one goal.

Hatch also had three ground balls, two caused turnovers, and one draw control for the winners. Swaffield had a game-high four draw controls and teammates Mintz, McVey, and Large all had two.

Colby, which played without leading scorers Kate Pistel and Katharine Eddy, scored just 22 seconds into the game when Gerrity tallied off a pass from Mintz. Husson did tie the game just 20 seconds later on a goal by Amanda Mora. The Mules, though, scored the next 13 goals to take control at halftime.
