NEW LONDON, CT -- The Williams College Ephs (9-7-4, 6-5-2 NESCAC) faced the Connecticut College Camels (13-5-2, 7-4-2 NESCAC) this afternoon at Connecticut College's Dayton Arena. Like the night before, the teams went into overtime 1-1 but the Camels were able to score during overtime to come out on top.
The Ephs had a tough start to the game with a failed power play opportunity and a Connecticut College goal at 9:55 into the first.
The second period saw a successful penalty kill from the Ephs but despite some more power play opportunities, neither Williams nor Connecticut College was able to find the net during this period.
It was not until the third period that the Ephs made their comeback during a Williams power play. After senior Amanda Reisman won the faceoff and got the puck to junior Brynn Puppe, junior Gabi Montembeault was able to score off the rebound from Puppe's fantastic slap shot at 4:03 into the third. The game remained tied for the rest of regular time with some great saves from sophomore goalie Chloe Heiting.
Despite this impressive comeback, the Ephs were unable to hold off the Camels during overtime, as Connecticut College was able to score during the very last minute of overtime, ending the game with a 2-1 victory over the Ephs.
By the end of the game, Heiting had saved 17of 19 Connecticut College shots while Abby Wieczorek for the Camels had saved 33 of 34 Williams shots. "Chloe played a great game and her breakaway save during OT was huge," said head coach Meghan Gillis, "Our power play was inconsistent as was our 5 v 5 play."
The Ephs play their next game on friday night against Wesleyan at home in Lansing Chapman Rink.
