Women's ice hockey rallies for 4-1 win
The Hamilton College Continentals scored three second-period goals to rally past the SUNY Cortland Red Dragons 4-1 in non-conference play at Cortland’s Alumni Arena on Tuesday night.
The Continentals (6-8-2 overall) remained perfect all-time against the Red Dragons and improved their series record to 18-0-0.
Stephanie Lang ’14 had a hand in two of Hamilton’s goals in the second period, scoring the game winner at 6:32 and assisting on the first of the Continentals’ two late insurance scores.
Lang's fifth goal of the season broke a 1-1 tie. She took a pass from Megan Fitzgerald ’16 and beat goalkeeper Deanna Meunier ’16 high with a backhand shot. Fitzgerald’s assist was her third this season.
Goals by Hannah Bartlett ’16 and Gigi Fraser ’14 in the last three minutes of the period sealed the win for Hamilton. With the Continentals on the power play, Bartlett converted a give-and-go from Lang (who now has six assists) for her third goal of the season with 2:14 left. Fraser capped the scoring 1:37 later with her ninth goal. Jill Tokarczyk ’14 picked up her team-leading eighth assist on the play.
Tori Bogen ’14 stopped the Red Dragons’ last 12 shots, holding Cortland (2-13-2) scoreless after Kaitlin Ryan ’16 opened the scoring 10:15 into the first period. Ryan scored her first goal of the season off an assist from Sydney Carlucci ‘17.
The Continentals tied the score with 4:54 left in the opening period on a goal by the team’s leading scorer, Katie Parkman ’17. Parkman’s goal, which was assisted by Teal Gosselin ’17 and Fraser, was her 10th. She’s the first Hamilton women's player with 10 goals in her rookie season since Lauren Tomford ’10 finished with 16 in 2006-07.
Hamilton returns to NESCAC play with a weekend series against nationally ranked No. 2 Middlebury College, starting with a 7 p.m. game at Russell Sage Rink on Friday, Jan. 31. The Red Dragons host Utica College on Friday at 7 p.m.
