Women's hockey earns rare win against Bowdoin
Stephanie Lang '14 scored twice in the final eight minutes to lift Hamilton College to a 3-1 win against Bowdoin College in a New England Small College Athletic Conference women's ice hockey game at Bowdoin's Watson Arena on Dec. 3.
Hamilton (2-4-0 overall, 2-3 NESCAC) defeated the Polar Bears for just the second time in 26 all-time meetings, and for the first time since the 1996-97 season. The Continentals travel to Colby College for another NESCAC game on Saturday, Dec. 4.
Hamilton carried a 1-0 lead into the third period after Becky Cairns '11 collected a loose puck off the boards and found the back of the cage with 1:32 remaining in the second frame. Bowdoin (3-2-0, 2-2) was able to even the score midway through the final stanza when Stephanie Ludy forced a turnover and found Jill Campbell alone in front for her second goal this season at 10:46.
The tie did not last long, however, as Lang chipped a loose puck that deflected off a Bowdoin defender into the net just 71 seconds later to give the visitors a one-goal lead. Lang sealed the win with a power-play goal with 3:35 left.
Becca Hazlett '13 made 24 saves in goal for the Continentals while Sage Santangelo stopped 21 between the pipes for the Polar Bears
