New London, Conn. – Junior defenseman Nick Fiorentino (Hartsdale, N.Y.) scored twice to lead the visiting Trinity College Bantams to a 4-0 victory over the Connecticut College Camels in New England Small College Athletic Conference men's ice hockey action this afternoon. Trinity, ranked No. 7 in the nation, improves to 2-0 overall and in the NESCAC, while the Camels fall to 0-2 overall and in the league.

The Trinity defense was stingy all game, yielding less than ten shots in each period and forcing junior goaltender Tedy Loughborough (Wellesley Hills, Mass.) to make just 21 saves to collect his second clean sheet in as many days. Fiorentino scored the game's first goal early with assists provided by senior defenseman Bryce Eviston (Vancouver, British Columbia) and Eric Benshadle (Buffalo, N.Y.) 2:05 into the game.

Trinity junior forward Barclay Gammill (New Canaan, Conn.) made it 2-0 with a power-play goal 7:53 into the second stanza, and senior forward Charlie Zuccarini (Shelton, Conn.) gave the Bantams a 3-0 lead with 8:40 remaining in the middle frame. Fiorentino added his second tally of the contest midway through the third period.  Junior Avery Gobbo (Mississauga, Ontario) finished with 31 stops between the pipes for Connecticut College. The teams combined for 50 penalty minutes, but Trinity killed off seven Camel power plays. Loughborough is now 6-0 in his career with four consecutive shutouts.
