Women's Hockey Settles For 2-2 Tie With Trinity

January 16, 2009

Middlebury outshot Trinity 48-14, but was forced to settle for a 2-2 tie with the Bantams in Kenyon Arena. The tie is the second straight between the schools after a 2-2 tie last January. The two teams meet again tomorrow for a NESCAC match-up at 3:00.

Trinity took a 1-0 lead early as a shot caromed off a defender to Kim Weiss, who gave the Bantams a 1-0 lead 8:34 into the game. Middlebury tied the game 15:33 into the second period, as Annmarie Cellino skated through several defenders on her way to a shorthanded tally.

Trinity regained the lead just 1:03 into the third period as Weiss scored her second goal of the game, this one on a breakaway. Middlebury was forced to pull its netminder late for the extra attacker, with the advantage paying off as the Panthers tied the game with just 13 seconds remaining. Anna McNally made a nice feed from behind the net to Randi Dumont, who scored from the high slot.

Middlebury held an 8-0 shots advantage in overtime, including a power play opportunity, but could not net the game-winner.

Lani Wright ended the night with 14 saves for Middlebury, while Isabel Iwachiw made 48 stops for the Bantams.
