Key stats

Recap

The No. 20 Great Danes picked up their second-straight win with a 4-0 whitewash of Colgate on Tuesday afternoon.

UAlbany improves to 3-0 this season against opponents ranked outside the NFHCA Top-25 and has outscored those opponents 8-1 in 2019.

A pair of Great Danes had career days in senior Dana Bozek and sophomore Kelsey McCrudden. Bozek, a midfielder, racked up a career-best seven points, while McCrudden, a defenseman, notched a personal best in assists with four.

McCrudden’s four assist performance is tied for second all-time and marks the first time a Great Dane has accomplished the feat since Fiori Van Rijsiwjk did so in 2015.

 

Bozek’s seven points are tied for sixth all-time in program history.

 

The women in purple jumped out to a strong start behind a goal from Bozek in the opening quarter. Freshman Lillian Hickey was able to double the Great Danes’ lead, 2-0, with a redirection before Bozek netted her second of the contest with a one-timer at 28:56.

Bozek later connected with McCrudden for the third time in the contest to make it a 4-0 game with five minutes remaining.

Goalkeeper Melissa earned the win and her second shutout of the season. The senior finished the contest with two saves.

Up next: UAlbany will visit Rhode Island for a pair of weekend games at Brown (Saturday) and Bryant (Sunday).
