Four First Period Goals Propel Trinity to 5-2 Win Against Women...s Hockey

By Mindy Brauer

Four first-period goals helped lead Trinity College (7-10-2) to a 5-2 win over MIT women’s hockey (1-12-0) in a non-conference game Friday night.

Emmy Handy and Michelle Chee scored two goals apiece while 10 additional players got points for the Bantams. Mary P. Harding ’07 and Stephanie V. Brenman ’09 scored the Engineers’ goals.

The Engineers struck quickly, with Amanda P. Hunter ’07 setting up Harding 26 seconds into the first period. Seven minutes later, Trinity evened the game when Handy connected on a pass from Tara Borawski for a power-play goal. Elizabeth Johnson and Jessica Keeley found Michelle Chee for the go-ahead goal at 9:33, and Kara Douglas scored what proved to be the game-winning goal less than two minutes later. The Bantams’ final goal of the first period came from Chee on passes by Erin Fitzgerald and Kelley McCarthy at the 12:56 mark, making the score 4–1.

The second period was a scoreless until 2:28 remained, when Handy recorded her second goal of the night with Ashley Bell and Megan Fallon earning the assists.

After 52 minutes, MIT made its final goal halfway through the third and final period on a goal by Brenman that was set up by Lauren M. Nowierski ’06.

Sally W. Simpson ’09 collected 23 saves in total, 15 of them during the third period. Allison Parpal made 17 stops for Trinity.
