February 3, 2012
The Middlebury women’s hockey team took game one of a two-game series with Connecticut College (8-8-2, 5-7-1), topping the Camels 4-1 in Kenyon Arena. The seventh-ranked Panthers (14-2-2, 11-2) held a 37-14 shots advantage in the game, getting two goals from Katie Sullivan.
Sullivan opened the scoring just 1:43 into the game, finishing from the crease area after a Camel turnover. Hannah Bielawski earned her team-leading 12th helper of the season on the goal, while Lauren Greer also earned an assist.
Greer made it a 2-0 game 5:30 into the second frame, converting a nice feed from Jennifer Krakower on a one-timer in a two-on-one situation. The goal was her ninth of the season, tying her for the team-lead with Sara Ugalde, who later scored.
Ugalde found the back of the net on the power play just 53 seconds into the third period, with Krakower earning her second assist of the game.
The lead grew to 4-0 3:51 into the period when Sullivan scored her second of the game. Greer earned her second helper of the night, feeding Sullivan for her seventh of the year in a two-on-one.
Connecticut College broke up the shutout just 25 seconds later, when Courtney Dumont scored her seventh of the season. Dumont found some space in front of the net, scoring with a backhander up high.
Annabelle Jones made 13 saves in goal to improve to 9-2-2 on the year. Kelsie Fralick made 23 stops in 44 minutes, being relieved by Amy Leichliter in the third, who stopped all 10 shots she faced in 16 minutes of action.
