More news about: Trinity (Conn.)

Brunswick, Maine - The visiting Trinity College Bantams dropped a 2-1 decision against the red-hot Bowdoin College Polar Bears in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) men's ice hockey action this afternoon.  Trinity, ranked No. 6 in the nation, falls to 16-5-1 overall and 12-4 in the NESCAC with its first loss in three games, while the Polar Bears improve to 12-7-3 overall and 8-5-3 in the league with their eighth consecutive victory.

Bowdoin took a 1-0 lead 6:24 into the game.  Chris Wallace collected the puck behind Trinity's net and fed Matt Sullivan in the low slot. Positioned directly in front of Bantam sophomore goalie Alex Morin (St. Hubert, Quebec), Sullivan wristed a shot top left shelf.  Wallace set up another goal to double Bowdoin's lead with 1:15 remaining in the opening period, feeding Mitch Barrington at the left point. Spencer Antunez tipped the puck as Barrington's shot fired past, redirecting the puck into Trinity's net.  Sophomore forward Tyler Whitney (Wakefield, Mass.) broke up a 2-on-1 opportunity for Bowdoin, sliding to the ice and blocking a Polar Bear pass halfway through the second.

Bantam freshman forward Ross Mandigo (Stowe, Vt.) looked to put Trinity on the board with a breakout 1-on-1 under two minutes into the final period.  Mandigo tried to go five-hole on Peter Cronin only to see the goalie turn his shot away with a stick save.  Trinity pulled within one off a Whitney goal 11:41 into the third. Following a face-off in the Bowdoin zone, the puck kicked out to the top where Bryce Eviston (Vancouver, British Columbia) and Bradley Buvinow (Turnersville, N.J.) combined to land the puck just outside Bowdoin's goal line. The puck sat on the right post before Whitney poked in Trinity's first. Sophomore forward Anthony Sabitsky (Sicklerville, N.J.) looked to tally an equalizer with a turnaround shot from the low slot with under three to play, but Cronin turned the puck away. Morin ended the day with 25 saves, while Cronin earned the win with 35 stops.
