Colker, one of the anchors of the Colonial defense, scored the game winning goal in extra time against Vermont on Sunday. The game went to a sudden-death overtime after the teams played to a 1-1 draw. In the 98th minute, Colker jumped in the air and headed home a corner kick into the bottom right corner of the net for the game-winner. It was her first goal of the season and her second career game-winning tally. In 2004, her score proved the difference against South Dakota State.
