Undefeated Bowdoin edges a surging Amherst on a late Colin Downey goal and tightens its grip on first place:

Bowdoin 3 Amherst 2 (Bowdoin is in sole possession of 1st place at 6-0-1 while Amherst is now 5 points out of 1st place at 4-3. Bowdoin trailed in the game for the first time this year, falling behind 1-0 at the 11-second mark of the 1st period and then trailing 2-1 in the 2nd period on a short-handed goal by Amherst’s Mike Moher. Daniel Weiniger tied it up for Bowdoin a couple of minutes later on his own shortie and Colin Downey scored the game winner with a little more than 2 minutes to go in the game. Here’s a link to a good write up of the game from the Amherst website. Amherst had a slight edge in SoGs (24-21) but also had the edge in PP opportunities. Steve Messina got the win in net for the Polar Bears and maintained his perfect record on the season (7-0). Amherst’s Nate Corey was tagged with the loss, falling to 5-4 on the season. Amherst lost for the first time at home in nearly 2 years, with its last home loss occurring on Feb 26, 2011, to the very same Polar Bears and with the same Colin Downey scoring the game winner in a 1-goal game. Bowdoin’s Harry Matheson had a 2-point night (0-2-2) as did Amherst’s Mike Moher (1-1-2). Before this loss, Amherst had been on a bit of a roll, with consecutive wins on the road at Middlebury, Elmira, and Plattsburgh. At 10-0-1, Bowdoin is one of only 2 undefeated teams remaining in D3, with Norwich being the other.)

Williams 1 Trinity 1 (OT) (Williams stands in sole possession of 2nd place at 5-1-1 and just 2 points behind Bowdoin in the standings. Trinity, having played only 5 games, is in 5th place at 2-1-2. The game was a goaltenders’ duel between 2 outstanding goalies in Ben Coulthard for Trinity and Sean Dougherty for Williams.)

Middlebury 4 Wesleyan 3 (Middlebury is in sole possession of 3rd place at 4-1-2 while Wesleyan continues its struggles, sitting in a tie for 7th place at 1-3-1 but having played only 5 games. Keith Buehler netted a hat trick for the Cardinals while Middlebury freshman Evan Neugold also had a 3-point night (1-2-3). Frosh Alex Carlacci and Nick Craven also registered 2 points each for Wesleyan (0-2-2). The game was tied at 2-2 after 2 periods but Middlebury sealed the win with 2 goals early in the 3rd period for 4-2 lead. Frosh Nolan Daley got the rare start in goal for Wesleyan and was tagged with the loss while Nick BonDurant got the win for Middlebury.)

Hamilton 6 Colby 3 (With a 6-goal eruption, Hamilton came to offensive life after struggling for much of the season. Hamilton put the game out of reach in the 2nd period. Soph Sam Parker took the loss in net for Colby, which sits all by itself in 10th place at 1-6-0. Hamilton moved into 6th place at 2-4-1. Dom Jancaterino scored 2 goals for Hamilton while Anthony Ruberto had a 3-point night (1-2-3) and Matt Tetro and Pat Curtis were both credited with 2 assists.)
