Hartford, Conn. – Six different players lit the lamp Friday night as the Trinity College women’s ice hockey team closed out its 2019 calendar year with a win over non-conference Salem State, 6-1. The Bantams climbed back to .500, sitting 3-3 at the conclusion of its 2019 season, and will begin conference play in January.
For the first time this season, six different scorers were registered in the box score, showing the largest margin of victory this season for the Bantams. Salem State (2-6-1) registered its lone goal late in the third period, showcasing Trinity’s control of the game through all 60 minutes.
After just four minutes of action, Trinity struck first. Sophomore Ellie Fellows (Westport, Mass.) collected her third career goal — and first of the season — to put the Bantams ahead. The Bantams saw the bulk of its scoring in the second period, with first-year Lily Kate Delaney (Groton, Mass.), sophomore Bailey McKeon (Frisco, Texas), and senior Alex Sinson (Elm Grove, Wisc.) finding the back of the net inside an eight-minute span to make it 4-0.
First-year Ethel Wilhelmsson (Stockholm, Sweden) tallied her second of the season two minutes into the third before the Vikings were able to light the scoreboard. Senior Casie Curtin (Wrentham, Mass.) cut the deficit to four, but sophomore Cassidy McNeeley (South Easton, Mass.) scored her second of the season to conclude the scoring.
The Bantams have scored three goals or more in all three of its wins this season. Four players finished the evening with two goals; Fellows (1g, 1a), Wihelmsson (1g, 1a), McNeeley (1g, 1a), and junior Camille von Steinbergs (Minnetonka, Minn.), who had two assists.
Trinity returns to the ice January 2, traveling to Bowdoin for its first NESCAC action. Puck drop is slated for 7 p.m.
