The Buff and Blue netted another just two minutes later when Jocelyn Donohue registered her first goal of the game and the 100th of her career. The Hawks were able to find the back of the net once more, but Kerns scored her second goal of the game to the give the Colonials an 8-5 advantage going into the break.
