Ephs Score Last Seven Goals of the Game to top Connecticut College 12-7

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – In a battle between two teams in search of their first NESCAC win of the season, the Williams Ephs (2-2/1-2 NESCAC) emerged victorious by scoring the last seven goals of the game to erase a 7-5 deficit and claim a 12-7 win over the visiting Connecticut College Camels. 

Eph first year Mason Yonge netted three of the seven second half goals to key the Eph comeback.

The Camels' Hannah Lombard scored the first goal of the second half at 28:09 off a feed from Jamie Navoni to extend their lead to two, 7-5, but that would be the Camels' final goal on the day.

A goal by Suzanna Penikis set up by a pass from Claire Fitzpatrick at 16:04 put the Ephs in front 8-7 and they never relinquished the lead. 

After the two teams traded goals early in the first half Williams ran off four goals in a row to take a 5-1 lead only to see the Camels came surging back with a five-goal run of their own. Three of the five Camel goals came off of free position tallies. Clara Bisson had two goals for the Camels in that run. In the Eph four-goal surge Emma TenBarge scored twice and Allison Norris notched two assists. 

On the day the Ephs out shot the Camels 35-28 and had four fewer turnovers (23) than the Camels (27), while Connecticut College held a 27-23 advantage in ground balls.

Eph goalie Kami Cisneros allowed seven goals and made nine saves, while the Camels' Nina Fazio stopped 14 Eph shots and allowed 12 goals.

Jamie Navoni, Clara Bisson, and Hannah Lombard led the Camels with two goals each and Navoni also had an assist. The Ephs were led by Emma TenBarge and Mason Yonge each with three goals. TenBarge also contributed one assist.

The Ephs will return to action on March 20 when they travel to Cambridge, Mass. to take on MIT in a 4:00 PM contest.
