PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Brown women's hockey team knocked off No. 9/10 Colgate, 4-3, on Friday night at Meehan Auditorium. The Bears trailed 3-1 early in the second period but fought back with goals from freshman Tina Paolillo (East Haven, Conn.) and junior Sena Hanson (New Brighton, Minn.). Hanson then provided the game winner at 7:43 of the third while junior Calla Isaac (Sherwood Park, Alberta) made 16 saves in the frame to give Brown the upset victory.

"I'm really proud of how hard the girls worked," said head coach Carisa Wahlig. "I thought they played disciplined and fed of each other's energy. Calla Isaac had a great finish and stood on her head. She made some saves that really pushed the game in our favor."
