Nationally ranked No. 6 Middlebury College shut out visiting Hamilton College 6-0 in a New England Small College Athletic Conference game at Kenyon Arena on Nov. 21.

Middlebury (2-0 overall, 2-0 NESCAC) held a 28-13 advantage in shots and scored four goals in the third period. Hamilton (0-2, 0-2) has yet to score a goal this season.

The Panthers came out strong early with a pair of goals 2 minutes, 14 seconds apart in the game’s first 6:17. Middlebury opened the scoring with a shot from the left face-off circle on the power play. The lead doubled at 6:17 as one of the Panthers skated down the slot and snapped a shot to the top left corner of the net for the 2-0 lead.

Following a scoreless second period, the Panthers broke the game open with three goals in a 2:12 span in the third. The Panthers connected on a power play, finishing off a rebound from just outside the crease at 2:52. Middlebury’s second goal of the run trickled through the goaltender at 4:07. The lead increased to 5-0 as the Panthers snapped a wrister into the far side of the net from the left face-off circle. Middlebury ended their scoring with a power-play goal at 12:25.
