WATERVILLE, Maine – The Endicott women's ice hockey team traveled to Colby College for their last regular season contest and were handed a 2-1 overtime loss.
Colby got on the board first at the 12:40 mark of the second period with a goal from Natalie Maus (Evergreen, Colo.).
The Gulls responded with a tally of their own just under three minutes later when Maggie Layo (Sandwich, Mass.) found the back of the net.
