Men’s hockey concludes with two road setbacks

AMHERST — The Middlebury College men’s hockey team dropped two NESCAC road games this weekend to conclude its season at 3-19-2, 3-15 in league play.
On Friday, host first-place Hamilton downed the Panthers, 5-2. The Continentals finished at 17-3-4 11-3-4 in NESCAC play.
The Panthers took a 1-0 lead 8:08 into the game with a five-on-three power play goal scored on a rebound by Vincent Gisonti, his team-leading 10th of the season.
But Hamilton scored with just 34 seconds remaining in the first period and then reeled off the game’s next four goals before Middlebury’s Travis Stephens scored with 2:11 remaining by netting the rebound of an Andrew Neary shot.
Panther starting goalie Stephen Klein made 16 saves and allowed four goals in 32:13, while Brian Ketchabaw stopped 18 of 19 shots he faced in 27:27. Evan Buitenhuis made 25 saves for Hamilton.
On Saturday, host Amherst (14-6-3, 9-6-3) scored three goals in the final 15 minutes to defeat Middlebury, 4-1.
Amherst carried a 1-0 lead into the third period, when Mitchell Allen knotted the score with 14:34 to play in regulation with his fifth goal of the winter, assisted by Joey Piccinini. 
But Amherst retook the lead 14 seconds later, and then scored two mid-period goals 25 seconds part to nail down the win.
Goalie Adam Ellison made 20 saves for the Purple & White, while Ketchabaw racked up a career-high 44 stops for the Panthers.
