Brennan Contributes with 11 Saves for Camels
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.--Anne de Saint Phalle (Bronxville, N.Y.) put in the go-ahead score with 4:58 remaining in regulation as Williams College (2-2, 2-0) was able to overcome a first-half deficit in a 2-1 NESCAC victory against Connecticut College (1-2, 1-1) Saturday.
Ariel Lyddane (Greenwich, Conn.) had two assists for the hosts, who held a 22-to-9 advantage in shots in their victory.
Junior Katrina Tulla (New Canaan, Conn.) finished with three saves in the victory for Williams. Connecticut College freshman Kelly Brennan (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) stopped 11 shots in an impressive performance between the pipes.
The Camels successfully converted a penalty corner into offense to jump out to a 1-0 lead early. Jen Wallace (Farmington, Maine) scored her fifth goal in her past five games, a stretch that dates back to the last week of the 2008 season. Abby Hine (Madison, Conn.) assisted on the tally with the 51st point of her career.
The Camels sustained their one goal advantage and carried the lead into the break. Brennan had seven saves in the first half and the Ephs provided the first-year keeper with plenty of pressure, holding a 12-to-4 advantage on shots in the opening frame.
In the second stanza, Williams continued to provide most of the pressure, out-shooting the Camels 10-to-5. The Ephs finally got on the board with 14:55 remaining in regulation. Lucy Rollins (Rye, N.Y.) scored the equalizer on an assisting feed from Lyddane.
Later on with 4:58 to play, de Saint Phalle put the hosts on top for good and the hosts were able to hold on for the 2-1 triumph.
The Camels will host Eastern Connecticut State University Tuesday afternoon for a 4:30 p.m. game in New London.
