a shot from just outside the box from Gould that sailed over
the head of Trinity senior GK Emily Weedon
(Wellesley, Mass.) and into the left side of the net at 4:32.
The Polar Bears doubled their lead shortly before intermission as
first-year back Becky Krakora took a pass from Stacie Sammott and
snuck a shot past Weeden for her first career goal at 42:48.
Bowdoin clinched the win in the 67th minute when Christina
finished off a scramble in front of the net. Bowdoin's Kat Flaherty saved nine shots in the victory while Weeden and junior Lily Pepper (Princeton Junction, N.J.) made three saves apiece for Trinity.
