Molnar ’22 records career-high 36 saves in women’s hockey win


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.

Maddie Hong ’23 cleared the puck from the Mammoths zone and Nancy Loh ’23 picked it up coming off the bench and skated it right past an Amherst defender to put it in bottom right corner.

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.
