Jan 13, 2012, results

Lots of scoring for the winning team in conference play, with 2 winners scoring 7 goals, another scoring 6-goals winner, and the other winner scoring 4 goals, and not a single 1-goal game on the night (Amherst breaks loose and goes for the easy win for a change!!!)

Trinity 7 Colby 4 (Colby’s struggles continue as it falls to 1-8-0 in league play as Trinity rises to 2-5-0 and departs the cellar, leaving the Mules as  the sole occupants of last place for at least a few hours; the Bantams jump out to a 4-1 lead early in the 2nd only to see Colby quickly battle back to make the game a 1-goal game at 4-3. Trinity  quickly tacks on another goal in the 2nd, ending the 2nd period with a 5-3 lead; Colby fights back early in the 3rd period as Co-captain Dan Nelson completes his hat trick to make it a 1-goal game again; Trinity is not to be denied and wins going away has it scores the last 2 goals of the game; Trinity is paced by the Menard twins with identical stat lines of 2-1-3; linemate Jordan So has a 1-2-3 night; for Colby, scoring leaders are Dan Nelson with a hat trick and d-man Scott Harff with 3 assists; Ben Coulthard goes the distance in net for the Bantams; Matt Delaney starts the game in net for the Mules but is relieved by Jordan Nathan a little less than halfway through the game after surrendering 4 goals)

Amherst 7 Tufts 1 (Amherst moves back into 1st place at 7-1-0 as Williams is not in league action and stays at 6-1-1 for the weekend; Amherst has a 3-0 lead and chases Tufts’ Scott Barchard from the nets early in the 3rd period after he gives up the 4th goal (4 goals on 24 shots); the Jeffs pour it in in the 3rd period with 4 goals and find their touch on the power play, hitting on 3 of 7 opportunities; Amherst controls play, outshooting the Jumbos by 35-19; Jonathan La Rose gets the start after being torched at Bowdoin last weekend for 7 goals and seems to have regained his touch, saving all but 1 of the 19 shots he faces; Mark Colp and Brian Safstrom have identical 3-point nights (2-1-3) while Nick Brunette also scores 3 points with a 1-2-3 stat line; Mike Rowbotham, Aaron Deutsch, and Johnny Van Siclen each register 2 assists; Evin Kholeini has the thankless task of relieving Barchard and gives up 3 goals on 11 shots in the 3rd period; here’s a link to a write-up from the Tufts website, noting that Kyle Gallegos returned to the line-up and scored the lone Tufts goals after an injury-related absence)

Bowdoin 6 Wesleyan 2 (In a wide-open offensive-minded game, Bowdoin outshoots Wesleyan by 48-35 as it moves into a tie with Williams for 2nd place at 6-2-1; Wesleyan stays in 5th place at 3-4-0 and is joined by Hamilton (3-5-0) and Tufts (3-4-0); Bowdoin’s young guns (all but 2 of Bowdoin’s 16 points are scored by freshmen and sophomores) break open a tight 2-2 game after 2 periods with 4 goals in the 3rd, with 2 Bowdoin PP goals sandwiching an extended 5-3 PP opportunity for Wesleyan in the 3rd; sophs Colin Downey and Ollie Koo and frosh John McGinnis all have 1-1-2 nights; frosh Connor Quinn has a 2 assist night for the Bears; Steve Messina has a solid night in net, saving 33 of 35 shots; Glenn Stowell is in net for Wesleyan and is less fortunate, saving 42 of 48)

Hamilton 4 Conn College 1 (Conn College takes the lead early in the 2nd on a Will Einstein goal after a scoreless 1st period; Conn College sits in 8th place at 2-5-0 while Hamilton shares 5th place with Wesleyan and Tufts; Anthony Ruberto scores a goal a minute after the  Einstein goal and then Hamilton scores the next 3 goals without a response from the Camels; Hamilton’s Anthony Roberto (1-1-2) and Phil DiDonato (02-2) are the only repeat scorers; Joe Quattrocchi has an excellent performance in net, making 28 saves; Andrew Margolin is tagged with the loss in goal for Conn College)

nonconference:

Plattsburgh 7 Middlebury 0 (not much to say about Middlebury’s worst loss since 1993 as Plattsburgh scores in every period and by every means (2 PPs and a shorty) although the shots on goal are roughly even (27-25 in favor of Plattsburgh); Middlebury goalie John Yanchek is pulled after 34 minutes and 4 goals on 18 shots in favor of frosh Dan Fullam, who plays for 15 minutes in his intercollegiate debut, allowing  2 goals on 7 shots, before giving way to new team member, Mike Peters (he is still not listed on the Middlebury roster so nothing is known about him), who gives up 1 goal on 2 shots in 10 minutes; Middlebury’s primary back-up goalie, Nick BonDurant is no longer on the team after, according to a USCHO poster, having violated a team rule — too bad — he was the goalie who shut Platty out in the PrimeLink and had real promise)

Williams 1 Skidmore 1 (OT) (a little bit of a surprise but apparently the Thoroughbreds gave Plattsburgh a tough battle a few days ago, before falling 6-3 on several very late goals by the Cardinals; but not really a surprise after looking at the boxscore and discovering that Williams is now down to 16 skaters — joining MIA forwards John Wickman and Bryden McGhee (both have been out for some time) tonight were forwards Eric Rubino and Alex DeBaere; things are going to get tough for the Eph if some of these missing players do not return to action and do so soon; here’s a link to write-up of the game; rookie Sean Dougherty got the start in goal, acquitting himself well as Skidmore had a slight territorial edge (SOGSs were 29-24 in favor of Skidmore but Williams completely ran out of gas in the 3rd period, generating only 1 shot to Skidmore’s 15); all the scoring was in the 2nd period, with Paul Steinig getting his first goal of the year for Williams)
