Connecticut College 3, Wesleyan University 1
Dumont, O'Gorman & Martin Contribute with Goals for Camels
MIDDLETOWN, Conn.---(Wesleyan Sports Information) Connecticut College extended its win streak vs. Wesleyan University to four games and improved to 2-1 on the year by scoring three times in a span of just 3:49 early in the second period to come away with a 3-1 road victory Saturday afternoon. Both teams will be back in action Sunday, Nov. 28, as Wesleyan hosts Hamilton College while Connecticut College ventures to in-state rival Trinity College.
The Camels began the three-goal barrage just 1:00 into the second period in their second power-play opportunity. Wesleyan sophomore goalie Ashleigh Corvi had stopped nine Connecticut College attempts on its first power-play chance at the end of the first period but the Camels lit the lamp nine seconds into their second chance as a shot from the left circle by freshman Olivia Farrell was saved by Corvi but the rebound sat in front of the net where freshman Courtney Dumont pounced on the puck and flicked it into the net for her team-leading fourth goal of the young season. She now has five points on the year while Farrell raised her scoring to four points. Also assisting on the goal was junior Katelyn Driscoll.
At 3:17, the Camels made it 2-0, again capitalizing on the woman-advantage with senior Brigid O´Gorman firing a wrist shot from the top of the right face-off circle inside the right post. It was her first goal of the year. Also scoring her first goal of the year was senior Kourtney Martin as she finished off the scoring for the Camels at 4:49 with a short-range shot on the left just inside the right goal post waist high.
The Cardinals got on the board at 13:04 of the second period as junior M.J. Cardin did the honors from the doorstep on the right side, tucking in a shot after receiving a pass from behind the net from sophomore Kelsey Muller.
The Camels outshot the Cardinals in each period and by a 43-14 margin for the game. Corvi came up with 40 saves, as she has had 40 saves or more in each of Wesleyan´s three contests this season and 151 total, an average of 50.3. In the Connecticut College net sophomore Amy Leichliter collected 13 stops to improve her seasonal save percentage to .923 while reducing her goals-against average to 2.01.
