WATERVILLE, Maine — In a wild game featuring a penalty shot and two penalties in the overtime period, the Colby College and Bowdoin College women’s hockey teams battled to a 3-3 tie on Saturday in the home opener for the Mules at Alfond Rink.
The Polar Bears (1-0-1 overall, 1-0-1 NESCAC) took a 3-2 win over the Mules (0-1-1, 0-1-1) on Friday night in Brunswick.
How it happened
* Bowdoin senior Julie Dachille scored the opening goal at 3:12 of the first period. Brigit Bergin kept the puck in the zone to Brooke Solomon, who got the puck out front to Dachille.
* Colby bounced back just 2:16 into the second period to tie the game. A long clear went off the right boards and slid quickly into the Bowdoin zone. Polar Bear goaltender Kerri St. Denis and Mule first-year Taylor Lundberg both reached the puck at the same time. The puck went in the air and landed in front of the goal, where Colby’s Carly Thomas poked it in the net while falling down.
* The Polar Bears went ahead for the second time on a Colby giveaway at its own blue line. Solomon reached in to knock the puck away to Julia Surgenor, who raced in from just inside the blue line and lifted a shot to the upper left corner at 8:08 of the second period.
* Moira Mullaney’s hustle helped the Mules tie the game at 2-2 with just 1:17 left in the second period. Mullaney and Colby supplied terrific defensive pressure in the Bowdoin zone on the goal. Along the left boards, Mullaney dove to push a puck away from a Bowdoin defender and right to teammate Lilly Santonelli for her first collegiate goal. Santonelli’s shot hit the inside of the left post.
* Colby went ahead for the first time at 7:35 of the third period on the second goal by Thomas. Izzy Tegtmeyer’s blast from the point was deflected away by a Polar Bear defender right to Anna Cosentino, whose shot was tipped in by Thomas.
* Maureen Greason, who had two goals on Friday, scored the tying goal for Bowdoin at 13:22 of the third period on the power play. Meg Galanos kept the puck in the zone along the right boards and tipped a pass to Jess Cloutier, who immediately crossed the puck to Greason for a backhand score.
* The Mules had a chance on a penalty shot with 1:45 left in regulation. However, St. Denis went hard to her left and pushed away the attempted shot.
By the numbers
* Colby goalie Cierra San Roman had 16 of her 30 saves in the third period. The first-year had 62 saves in the two games.
* St. Dennis had seven saves in the third period, three more in overtime, and finished with 22 stops.
* Both teams had one power play goal after each scored two extra-player goals on Friday.
