CLINTON, N.Y. – Hamilton College’s Nancy Loh ’23 scored early in the second period and Evie Sheridan ’26 made 27 saves in the Continentals’ 1-0 NESCAC win against the Colby College Mules at Hamilton’s Russell Sage Rink on Friday night.
The nationally ranked No. 13 Continentals won their sixth straight and improved to 8-2-0 overall and 4-1 in the conference. Hamilton handed No. 6 Colby (8-1-0, 2-1) its first loss this season.
How It Happened
After a scoreless first period, the Continentals tallied the lone goal at 3:58 of the second. Abby Kuhns ’23 secured the puck at center ice and passed to Bobbi Roca ’24, who rushed into the offensive zone along the left-side boards. Roca passed to Loh and she skated towards the net. Loh flicked a shot past the goaltender from the left side of the net a few feet outside the crease. The Mules pulled their goaltender in favor of an extra skater with 1:14 left in the third period, but managed just one shot on goal in the final seconds.
Sheridan posted her third shutout and turned away 14 shots in the third period alone. Loh has 40 goals and 75 points in her Hamilton career. Roca, who picked up her fifth assist this season, won half of her 14 faceoffs. Kuhns registered her 25th career assist for the Continentals. Mandy Busky stopped 26 shots for Colby. Each team had one power play in the first period.
The two teams play again at Sage Rink on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 3 p.m.
