RESULTS – NOV 21, 2009

One big surprise today too:

Trinity 2 Amherst 0

After that, the games fell more according to form:

Middlebury 5 Connecticut College 3

Bowdoin 3 Babson 2 (OT)

Williams 2 Tufts 0

Hamilton 8 Wesleyan 6

UMass-Boston 4 Colby 3

Bowdoin, Trinity, and Williams are in a 3-way tie for first in the NESCAC due to unblemished records on the road this weekend, promising signs for all 3 teams. Although Amherst lost, it played well, outshooting Trinity by a wide margin. Trinity was once again very opportunistic and had great goaltending, which bodes well for the Bantams (like the 2008 team). Today none of Middlebury’s three transfers played. Bowdoin is off to a promising start as it came back against a strong Babson team from a 0-2 deficit, scoring late in the third to tie and early in the OT to win, and getting 2 goals from superfrosh Dan Weiniger. Hamilton recovers from a poor performance yesterday against Trinity and pours the goals in today. Colby has a difficult road trip to the Boston area, losing 2 close ones (to Babson and a much improved UMass-Boston team). The Williams goaltending duo of Ryan Purdy and Marc Pulde looks very strong and could carry the Ephs.
