Sidney Molnar ’22 recorded a career-high 36 saves and the Hamilton College Continentals shut out the nationally ranked No. 8 Amherst College Mammoths 2-0 in a NESCAC game Sunday afternoon at Hamilton’s Russell Sage Rink to complete the weekend sweep.
Amherst (0-2-0, 0-2-0 NESCAC) out-shot Hamilton (2-0, 2-0 NESCAC) 36-23 but could not find the back of the net.
After a scoreless first period the Continentals came out more assertive and put one on the board 1:21 into the second period.
Hamilton capitalized off an Amherst penalty at 16:11 in the second period to make it 2-0.
Hong picked up the puck behind the net and passed it to Loh who fed it to Abby Kuhns ’23 at the point. Kuhns shot it through a screen and Claire McGennis ’24 deflected it in to record her first collegiate goal.
Despite having a 13-9 shot advantage in the third period Amherst could not put one on the board.
Like déjà vu, the Mammoths pulled their goalie after Hamilton took a penalty late in the third but were unsuccessful as the Continentals defense once again held them at bay to take the two-goal win.
Hamilton is home Tuesday, Nov. 23 to play Morrisville State at 1 p.m.
