Dec 2, 2011, results

Williams 4 Tufts 1 (Williams breaks the game open in the 3rd after leading just 1-0 after 2; special teams are the key as Tufts gets 2 5-minute majors toward the end of the 2nd period (Williams had coincidental 2-minute minors); Nick Anderson scores the game winner on a 5 on 3 PP early in the 3rd; then about 4 minutes later, Anderson scores a shortie after Williams is assessed a 5-minute major to hike the Williams’ lead to 3-1; lots of penalties of the physical sort called on both teams (9 penalties & 26 PIMs for Williams and 6 penalties and 26 PIMs for Tufts, including 2 game misconducts); Ryan Purdy bests Scott Barchard in a battle between 2 of the NESCAC’s finest goalies, with the SOGs basically even at 31-29 in favor of the Ephs; decent write up of the game from the Tufts website)

Bowdoin 6  Colby 2 (the Polar Bears pour it on in the 2nd with 4 goals sandwiched around a single Colby goal to put the game out of reach at 5-1; goals in the 2nd in order were Danny Palumbo for Bowdoin, followed by Corey McGrath for Colby, and then 3 consecutive Polar Bear goals by Rob Toczylowski, Jordan Lalor (13 seconds after the Toczylowski goal), and Tim Coffey (PP); Ryan Carney scored Bowdoin’s 1st period goal; Rob McGregor adds Bowdoin’s 6th goal early in the 3rd; Scott Harff gets a very late goal for Colby (24 seconds to go in the game); Lalor has a 4-point night for the Polar Bears (1-3-4) and frosh John McGinnis registers 3 points (0-3-3); Richard Nerland gets the start in the net and makes good on the opportunity to redeem himself for a bad performance in the same game last year; the 2 teams meet again tomorrow night in Brunswick; a few Colby injury tidbits picked up from the webcast: frosh goalie Jordan Nathan is recovering from an injury; the Bowdoin game was Nick Kondiles’ first game of the year (he had a high ankle sprain); co-capt Dan Nelson has a separated shoulder but is expected to be back soon; D3cast was much appreciated, with its many close-in shots and replays of the goals, despite the Colby homerism of the announcer (must be a Colby alum))

Middlebury 4 Conn College 0 (the Panthers resume their winning ways after a tough Primelink and are off to a great start in the NESCAC, unlike last year when they started very slowly; a rocking chair night for John Yanchek in net as he gets the shut-out but is called on to make only 13 saves; Middlebury dominates the game territorially, outshooting Conn College by more than 2 to 1 (32-13); a 3-point night for Louis Belisle (2-1-3) as Middlebury does all of its scoring in the 2nd period, with 3 goals being scored in less than 4 minutes midway through the period)
