More news about: Trinity (Conn.)

Waterville, Maine - The visiting Trinity College Bantams suffered a 2-1 setback against the Colby College Mules in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's ice hockey action this afternoon at Alfond Rink.  The Bantams fall to 8-9-1 overall and 5-4-1 in the NESCAC with a 7:30 tilt against NESCAC foe Williams up next on Friday, February 1. Colby improves to 9-6-3 overall and 6-6 in the league, and will visit conference rival Connecticut College on Friday at 7 p.m.  First-year forward Caelin Flaherty (Upton, Mass.) scored the Trinity goal on an assist by sophomore defender Julia Lee (Ferguson's Cove, Nova Scotia), while Bantam junior goaltender Kai-Lilly Karpman (Playa del Ray, Calif.) made 18 saves.

Tay Munson and Mikayla McLaughlin scored the first two goals of the game for Colby.  After a scoreless opening period, Munson scored at 3:20 of the second period on a power play when she worked a give-and-go with Cassidy Holzer.  Just 14 seconds into the third period, McLaughlin scored on a rebound to make it, 2-0, in the Mules' favor.  The Bantams made it interesting with 4:43 remaining on a nice individual effort by Flaherty for her seventh goal. Lee pushed the puck ahead after winning a battle on the left boards. The puck went off the wall and was skated on by Flaherty, who beat a defender and went in for the goal.  Nina Prunster stopped 21 shots in goal for Colby.  The Mules were 1-for-3 on the power play and held Trinity without a goal on its only chance up a skater.
