Providence, RI - The Brown women's ice hockey team (3-1-0, 2-0-0) won its second straight game on Saturday afternoon, earning a 2-0 victory over Colgate in ECACHL action.

With the Bears on the power-play, senior Amy McLaughlin (Berlin, MA) rifled a shot from the blueline that McManus tipped in from the edge of the crease. Senior Jessica Link (Clifton Park, NY) also earned an assist on the goal.
After a scoreless second period, senior Kerry Nugent (Andover, MA) increased the Bears' lead to 2-0 with her second goal of the year early in the third. Senior Katie Guay (Westfield, MA) connected with Nugent, who beat her defender and fired the shot into the back of the net at 5:20 of the third.
