WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College goaltender Izzy Scribano (Darien, Conn.), who made 19 saves in a victory over Hamilton College, was honored as the New England Small College Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week on Monday.
Scribano, a senior and tri-captain, earned two wins and had a 64.5 save percentage for the week. She stopped 19 shots and had three free-position shot saves in the final 6:07 of the game in a 14-10 NESCAC win over Hamilton.
In the latest NESCAC statistics, Scribano leads the conference in save percentage at 71.2 after making 37 saves in a 2-0 league start. While she has made 37 saves, the opponent goalies have combined for 13 saves in the two conference games. The opponent has scored on just 29 percent (7-for-24) of free-position attempts in the two league wins.
After Hamilton took a 9-8 lead with 16:13 to play, Scribano made six saves the rest of the way as the Mules went on a 6-1 scoring run (lone goal allowed was free-position) for the win. Scribano also played 20 minutes and had the win in a victory over University of New England on Tuesday.
Besides leading the conference in save percentage, Scribano also leads the league in overall save percentage (70.4) and total saves (38).
The eighth-ranked Mules (3-0 overall) will play at 10th-ranked Tufts University on Saturday at 1 p.m.
