NEW LONDON, Conn.--Jill Roloff (West Seneca, N.Y.) had a goal and two assists to lead the Trinity College women´s hockey team (3-0, 1-0) to a 5-1 NESCAC victory at Connecticut College (0-3, 0-3) Saturday.Celia Colman-McGaw (Manchester, Conn.) and Alex Guglielmi (Rocky Hill, Conn.) each contributed with a goal and an assist for the Bantams, who scored three power-play goals in the win.
Ariel DiPasquale (Whitestone, N.Y.) netted a third period goal for Connecticut College and won some important face-offs for the hosts in her first game at Dayton Arena. Junior Rachel Nelson (Denver, Colo.) and Samantha Shuffenecker (Oswego, N.Y.) assisted on the score for Connecticut College.
The Bantams capitalized on their first power play opportunity in the opening period. Colman-McGaw scored on assists from Roloff and Dom Di Dia (Studio City, Calif.) to make it a 1-0 game. With 7:23 remaining in the first, Trinity extended its lead to two goals. Sara Christopher (Andover, Mass.) denied Guglielmi on her initial scoring bid with one of her 19 saves in the game. But Roloff was able to collect the rebound on the doorstep for the goal to make it a 2-0 game.
In the latter stages of the second period, Brigid O´Gorman (Eden, N.Y.) set up Abby Hine (Madison, Conn.) on a breakaway in a shorthanded situation. But Isabel Iwachiw (New York, N.Y.) was able to make the save from point-blank range. The Bantams regained control of the puck and Kim Weiss (Potomac, Md.) netted the third goal with 5:46 remaining in the middle period.
The Bantams added two more goals in the third period to build a 5-0 advantage and were able to hold on for the comfortable 5-1 win. Iwachiw had 36 saves in the victory for the visitors. Amy Leichliter (Westchester, Pa.) had three saves in relief of Christopher.
The Camels will host Wesleyan University Sunday afternoon for a 3:00 p.m. NESCAC game at Dayton Arena.
