Hartford, Conn. - The Trinity College field hockey program dropped its third straight NESCAC competition Saturday, falling to Hamilton 1-0. The Continentals (4-6, 2-5) picked up its second league win of the season, while the Bantams drop to 1-6 in conference and 5-6 overall.
The Bantams outplayed the visitors statistically, leading in shots 17-7 and in corners 8-5. Hamilton goaltender Maggie Reville (Stamford, Conn.) had an exceptional game, making nine saves – including a handful of highlight reel stops – to secure the shutout.
After a back-and-forth first quarter, Hamilton took an advantage late in the second quarter. Senior Michaela Giuttari (Warwick, R.I.) buried her fourth of the year on a corner feed from classmate Lizzie Clark (Larchmont, N.Y.) to take a 1-0 lead into the second half.
The Bantams threatened in the third and fourth quarters, but couldn’t find the back of the net. Freshman Emma Cropper (Wilton, Conn.) made five saves on six shots, and junior Kendall Brown (Greenwich, Conn.) led the team in shots with six.
The Bantams are back in action Tuesday, traveling to Springfield for a 4 p.m. non-conference tilt.
