BOSTON, Mass. - Chargers sophomore Sierra Schuster (Hopkinton, N.H.) scored four times on the night and junior Nicole Lavigne (Berlin, Vt.) posted three goals and three assists, propelling the Colby-Sawyer Chargers to a 20-1 victory over the Newbury Nighthawks on Wednesday at The Winsor School.

Despite the final, the Nighthawks finally burst the bubble of the first goal in the program's history.

Following a foul on the Chargers that resulted in a free popsition attempt for the Nighthawks, freshman Kyliene Phillips (Schenectady, N.Y.) charged in from the right side of the eight meter arc and pierced the back of the net 24:33 into the first half.

Phillips contributed all over the field, collecting a team-high four ground balls for the Nighthawks.

Four other players recorded a pair of goals for the Chargers on their way to their 20 goal total.

Senior Meghan Castellano (Wallingford, Conn.), a usual cornerstone in the Chargers net, was not only credited with the win to improve to 2-0, but also scored a late goal in the second half; the first of her career. 

Nighthawks freshman Keely Molloy (Staten Island, N.Y.) finished the night with a career-high eight saves, while falling to 0-2.

The Nighthawks continue their season with one final game before Spring Break; a March 4 contest at New England College, scheduled for 4:00 p.m. Following a nine-day break, the Chargers will look to improve to 3-0 as they travel to Worcester State on March 11 at noon.
