Women’s hockey splits in Maine

BRUNSWICK, Maine — The Middlebury College women’s hockey team this past weekend split a pair of NESCAC games with host Bowdoin, which picked up its first league win by upsetting the Panthers in overtime on Saturday. 
The Panthers are 9-1-3, 5-1-2 in league play. They are three points ahead of second-place Hamilton (10-4-1, 4-2-1 NESCAC) in the league standings, and the Panthers host the Continentals this weekend at 7 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. on Saturday. Bowdoin is 2-13-1, 1-7-0 NESCAC. 
Late in Saturday’s overtime the Polar Bears stormed the Panther end and were rewarded at 0:32, when Miranda Bell’s game-winner from the left dot hit traffic in front and bounced up and over the right shoulder of Middlebury goalie Anna Goldstein (12 saves). The final score was 2-1.
Bell also gave the Polar Bears the lead on a power play 3:27 into the second period 
The Panthers’ Jenna Letterie tied the game with 2:48 remaining in the period. Madie Leidt flipped the puck from the Panther blue line up to Letterie outside the Bowdoin zone, and she converted a breakaway.
Bowdoin goalie Keri St. Denis stopped 37 shots as Middlebury lost for the first time since Nov. 25. 
On Friday the Panthers scored twice in the third period to defeat the Polar Bears, 3-1. 
Ellie Barney tipped in an Anna Zumwinkle shot from the right point to give the Panthers the lead in the second period, but Polar Bear Angelina Joyce equalized before the end of the period. 
Morgan Griffin game Middlebury the lead 1:58 into the third period, and Letterie later converted a rebound for an insurance goal.  
Panther goalie Lin Han and St. Denis each made 26 saves.
