Jan 22, 2011, results

scores:

Conn College 2 Bowdoin 1 (Bowdoin blows a chance to get a firmer grip on first place; we’ll find out whether the Polar Bears are the real deal this coming weekend as they host Williams and Middlebury; Messina performs well in net but is bested by the Camels’ Margolin; Bowdoin’s normally potent offense sputters)

Williams 3 NEC 2 (OT) (Ephs stay right on Bowdoin’s heels; Malchoff nets the game winner in OT; the Ephs dominate the game, outshooting NEC by 35-19, as Purdy has a relatively poor game (for him) in net, allowing 3 goals on 19 shots)

Castleton 3 Amherst 2 (OT) (Amherst dominates the third period but Castleton makes good on 1 of its 3 third period shots and ties the game with less than 3 minutes on the clock; Castleton dominates the OT as McNary bests the Jeffs’ Anderson)

Skidmore 4 Hamilton 3 (Hamilton goes up 3-0 early in the first period; Skidmore replaces its starting goalie 7 minutes into the game and then rattles off 3 straight goals later in the same period to tie the game; there is no scoring in the rest of the game except for the Thoroughbreds’ winning goal midway through the third period; Hefferman takes the loss as Hamilton dominates the game territorially)

Middlebury 6 St. Anselm 4 (a solid 4-point weekend for the Panthers as they move to within striking distance of the top tier teams; 3 assists for Suchoski; Yanchek in net again, saving 19 of 23 SOGs; St.Anselm draws within 1 goal of the Panthers in the third period but never really threatens; the Panthers are one of five teams hovering around .500 (Hamilton, Colby, Conn College, Middlebury, and Wesleyan) that are poised to make troubles for the top three teams during the rest of the regular season and the play-offs)

Norwich 1 Trinity 0 (one late second period goal is all that Norwich needs to knock off the Bantams; Vesprini is superb in net for Trinity, saving 31 of 32 SOGs)

Wesleyan 6 St. Mike’s 2 (Cardinals finish off a fine weekend, sweeping the St. Mike-Norwich tandem; 2 goals for Mucha; very chippy performance by the Purple Knights as they wrack up 30 minutes in misconducts)

Colby 5 Tufts 2 (back-to-back 4-point weekends for the Mules puts them in the hunt for one of the top four spots; McKinney gives up 2 Tufts’ goals in the first period and is replaced by Lemonais at the start of the second period, who slams the door on the Jumbos the rest of the way as the Mules score 4 unanswered goals; 2-point nights for Kondiles, Harff, and Bartlett)
