Women's Roundup: Late Flurry Powers Northwestern
In a visit to Chicago that was delayed a day by a March blizzard, Colorado nearly sprung a shocker on the 12th-ranked Wildcats, down by just a goal late in the second half. But freshman goalie Mallory Weisse slammed the door on the Buffalo's rally and Selena Lasota scored three times in just over four minutes as Northwestern pulled away late to hand Colorado its second loss of the year, 11-6.
Weisse made nine saves in the second half (10 total), helping make up for sloppy play that let Colorado back in the game after the Wildcats led 7-4 at the break. With the lead winnowed down to one, she made a one-on-one stop against Darby Kiernan (2G) and scooped the rebound, helping spark the game-ending rally.
Lasota scored all three of her goals in the game after Weisse's momentum-changing stop, starting with a free position score - one of three on the day for the Wildcats (4-4). Kaleigh Craig (2G, 1A) and Christina Esposito (1A, 2A) also but together good games offensively. CColorado's Katie Macleary joined Kiernan with multiple points, finishing with a goal and two assists in the game.

Canisius Snaps 3-Game Slide With MAAC Win Over Fairfield
Senior Taylor Giglio scored five times and assisted on another three to lead the Griffs to a 12-6 victory over Fairfield in the first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action of the young season. The contest was a rematch of the MAAC finals a year ago, which was won by Fairfield, 9-7.
"It was a big win for the team," said head coach Scott Teeter. "We have a young group of girls that have played a tough non-conference schedule so far, it was good to see them get a taste of winning against a good team."
Jourdan Roemer (3G, 1A), Tessa Chad (3G) and Erica Evans (3A, 1G) joined Giglio in leading the offensive charge, as Canisius outscored the Stags 9-2 in the second half. The win gives Canisius a 3-5 record on the season.
Riley Hellstein scored twice for Fairfield in the losing effort.
