Hartford, Conn. – The Trinity College women’s ice hockey program outshot Suffolk University 53-28 on Sunday evening, but couldn’t get the go-ahead tally, drawing 1-1 in its final contest of the weekend. The Bantams (4-3-2) conceded a goal early before tying the contest in the first period, seeing Suffolk (5-8-2) goaltender Julia McLellan make an impressive 52 saves in the draw.
Trinity goaltender Stephanie Garvis (Plymouth, Minn.) got the start for the Bantams, making 28 saves in the tie. Every player on the ice for Trinity was credited a shot on goal, with junior Sierra Lee (Ferguson’s Cove, Nova Scotia) leading the way with nine.
Just before the ten-minute marker in the first period, the hosts struck first. Suffolk’s Sydney Teitz took a feed from Haley Poloskey, and was able to beat first-year goaltender Stephanie Garvis (Plymouth, Minn.) for the game’s opening goal.
Before the first period horn sounded, Trinity leveled the score. Junior Julia Lee (Ferguson’s Cove, Nova Scotia) netted an unassisted goal — the third of her career and first of the season — to get the Bantams back in the game.
Trinity had the advantage on special teams, committing just three penalties while seeing nine power play opportunities. The Rams killed off eight chances in regulation, weathering the storm before having to kill off one final attack in overtime.
Trinity is back in action on Monday, traveling to Plymouth State University; puck drop is set for 6 p.m.
