Lady Bantams Conquer Colby College

Kayla Chadwick ’12

After going 1-6 over their first seven games, the Trinity College women’s ice hockey team has gone on an absolute tear, winning nine of their last ten games to bring their season record to 10-7 (6-4 in the NESCAC).  This past weekend, the Lady Bantams took two games from Colby College, both by scores of 2-0.  
Friday night’s games started off on the right foot, as senior tri-captain Lindsey Weiner found the back of the net halfway through the first period, assisted by Emily Riccio ‘15 and Britney Ryan ‘13, giving Trinity a lead they would not relinquish.  The second period proved to be uneventful, and then Celia Coleman-McGaw ‘11 added an insurance goal (unassisted) at the 7:24 mark of the third period.   Goalkeeper Alexa Pujol ‘11 stopped all of Colby’s 17 shots, while Brianne Wheeler saved 29 of 31 for Colby.
A second Bantam victory seemed less sure in Saturday afternoon’s matchup, as the first two periods remained scoreless. Pujol kept Trinity in the game, saving 17 of 17 shots, until the third period saw the scoreboard light up.  Weiner capitalized on a power play 11:18 into the third period to put Trinity on the board (assisted by Ryan and Samantha Edelson ‘15).  Then Abby Ostrom ‘14 scored the final goal of the evening just three minutes later, assisted by Riccio and  Lucy Robinson ‘15.  Colby once again owed a lot to their goalkeeper, as Wheeler stopped 32 of 34 shots to keep them in the game until the third period.
The Bantams now have wins against Connecticut College, Southern Maine University (2), Williams College, Buffalo State (2), Hamilton College (2), and Colby College (2).  They will travel to Salve Regina, Bowdoin, Amherst, and Wesleyan before returning home for their last regular-season game of the year against Wesleyan on Saturday, February 18th at 3:00pm.
