Lauren Greer '13 posted one goal and one assist to lead nationally ranked No. 4 Middlebury College to a 2-1 win over Hamilton College in a NESCAC game at Hamilton's Russell Sage Rink on Jan. 28.

The Panthers' avenged a 2-1 overtime loss to the Continentals at Hamilton on Friday night. Hannah Bielawski '15 scored the other goal for the Panthers, and leads the team with 17 points. Katie Sullivan '15 posted two assists, and Maggie Melberg '12 added one. Annabelle Jones '15 made 24 saves in net.

Laura DiCarlo '12 scored her sixth goal of the season for the Continentals. Meredith Bitterman '12 tallied her team-leading ninth assist, and Abby Runyon '13 added another. Becca Hazlett '13 stopped 25 shots.

Middlebury (13-2-2 overall, 10-2-0 NESCAC) opened the scoring just five minutes, four seconds into the first period. Sullivan played the puck behind the left side of the goal to Melberg, who sent a pass to Greer in front for a one-timer into the back of the net. Greer is tied for the team lead with eight goals.

The Panthers stretched their lead to 2-0 at 9:04 of the period when Bielawski banged home a rebound following a shot by Greer that was initially saved. Middlebury led 2-0 at the first intermission.

Jones made several strong saves during the second period to perserve the Panthers' lead. She made a blocker stop on a backhand shot by Stephanie Lang '14 at 3:45, and another sliding save on a backhand effort by Jill Tokarczyk '14 with 4:10 left. The Panthers led 2-0 at the second intermission.

Hamilton (7-9-0, 4-6) cut its deficit in half on DiCarlo's power-play goal at 5:40 of the third. Runyon played the puck across the blue line to Bitterman for a one-time slap shot from the left point that was initially saved. But DiCarlo was there to pound home the rebound for her second goal in as many nights against the Panthers.

Hazlett kept the score at 2-1 with a pair of saves on an effort by Emily Fluke '15 in front with 3:50 to play. A Middlebury skater also hit the crossbar with a shot early in the third. Hazlett was pulled for an extra skater with 1:19 to play, but the Continentals were unable to score the tying goal.

Middlebury held a 27-25 shot advantage. The Panthers were 0-for-3 on the power play, while Hamilton was 1-for-2. The Continentals killed all 11 Middlebury power plays this weekend. The Panthers lead the all-time series 29-2-0.
