Big Second Period Gives Conn. College Win Over Bowdoin

NEW LONDON, Conn. - The Connecticut College women's ice hockey team scored three times in the second period to rally for a 4-3 win over Bowdoin on Sunday afternoon. The Polar Bears fall to 8-5-1 (5-3-0 NESCAC) with the loss. The Camels improve to 7-7-0 (5-5-0 NESCAC).

Emily Tang's second period goal gave Bowdoin a 2-1 lead just 1:21 into the frame. But the Camels bounced back with a pair of scores in 53 seconds later in the period to take a 3-2 lead. Kelsey Kirker added another score late in the stanza to give the hosts a 4-2 edge heading into the third period.

The third period featured 10 penalties, and Bowdoin took advantage of a 4x4 when Dominique Lozzi found the back of the net at 7:59 to trim the lead to 4-3. Bowdoin was unable to tie the game despite three later power plays as the Camels hung on to win.

Bowdoin went 1-8 on the power play for the night and killed off all eight of Connecticut College's chances. Kim Tess-Wanat scored a first period goal for Bowdoin. Kayla Lessard started and allowed four goals in the first two periods, making 16 saves before being replaced by Tara Connolly (15 saves, no goals allowed).

The Polar Bears will return to action next Friday at Watson Arena against Wesleyan.
