MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Sophomore Jordan So (Toronto, Ontario) scored his second career goal in the second period to lead the Trinity College Bantams to a 1-1 draw with the Middlebury College Panthers in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) men's hockey action tonight in Kenyon Arena.. The Panthers (4-4-3, 2-3-2) return to action on Saturday when they host Wesleyan at 3:00, while the Bantams (4-5-3, 2-4-1) visit Williams. Before the game, Middlebury celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1960-61 team that went 19-2, as the players were introduced before the game. 
        
Middlebury took a 1-0 lead just 2:49 into the game, as Ken Suchoski scored on an end-to-end rush for his first of the season. The Panthers had another great chance at 6:45, but a shot on an open net sailed just over the crossbar.
        
Trinity scored the only goal of the second period, with Jordan So netting his second of the year.  Sophomore Zachary Lombardi (Locust Valley, N.Y.) won the face-off back to senior Regnars Alksnis (Talsi, Latvia) at the left point, with his shot being saved by Middlebury netminder Nick BonDurant. So jumped on the rebound and scored to tie the game at the 17:34 mark.
        
The Bantams had the best chance to score in the third, when first-year Charlie Mullan (Buffalo, N.Y.) found senior Matthew Quigley (Pittsburgh, Penn.) in transition, but his shot missed the net at the 14:30 mark. Neither team scored in the remainder of regulation or overtime, as they settled for a 1-1 tie.
        
Middlebury held a 36-19 shots advantage in the game, with BonDurant making 18 saves.  Senior Wesley Vesprini (Lexington, Mass.) made 35 saves between the pipes for Trinity.
