Four-Goal Outburst From Holtz Paces Bowdoin to Win at USM

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Sophomore Kayte Holtz scored a career-best four goals to lead the Bowdoin College women's ice hockey team to a 6-2 win at Southern Maine on Saturday afternoon. The Polar Bears, unbeaten in their last three games, improve to 7-3-1 overall this year. The Huskies fall to 3-8-1 on the season.

After Holtz scored a first period tally, she added a shorthanded goal in the second period that gave Bowdoin the lead for good, 3-2. She then added two more, just 1:58 apart in the third period, to put the game out of reach. It is Holtz's first four-goal game of her career and the first for a Polar Bear since Meghan Gillis tallied four goals against Lake Forest in 2005. With the outburst she improves her team-best goal tally to 12 on the campaign.

Dominique Lozzi and Mallory Andrews also scored goals for the Polar Bears, who got 16 saves from Kayla Lessard in the win. Alex Smith and Christen Hart scored goals for USM. Jordan Lee collected 25 stops for the Huskies. Bowdoin went 2-6 on the power play and held a 31-18 edge in shots.

The Polar Bears will resume their four-game road trip at Saint Anselm on Tuesday evening.
