Hartford, Conn. – Sophomore Lauren Glynn (Arlington, Mass.) scored a late goal to break a 1-1 deadlock and propel the Trinity College Bantams over the Williams College Ephs, 2-1, in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women’s ice hockey action this afternoon at the Koeppel Community Sports Center. Trinity improves to 4-7 overall and 2-4 in the league, while the Ephs fall to 4-6 on the year, and 2-2 in the NESCAC.
Glynn’s goal, which came on a rebound with 4:10 remaining in the contest, was her team-best fifth of the season and second game-winner this year. Trinity had taken a 1-0 lead 1:10 into the second period on a goal by sophomore Macauly Bauer (Sheboygan, Wisc.), her second career tally, and Williams answered five minutes later with a goal by Cristina Bravi (Montreal, QC), her second score in as many days against Trinity.
Trinity sophomore goaltender Alexa Pujol (New Canaan, Conn.) was staunch in net, blocking all six of Williams’ shots in the final period to protect the Trinity lead. Pujol finished with 21 saves in the game. Williams’ first-year goaltender Chloe Billadeau (Chaska, Minn.) made 18 saves for the Ephs.
It was a role reversal for the teams from last night, when Williams and Trinity scored a combined three goals, but with the Ephs emerging victorious by a count of 2-1, in the first of this weekend’s two-game series. Today’s win for Trinity was their first league win since the opening game of the season, a 3-1 win over Connecticut College.
