The Amherst women’s lacrosse team had another successful week, coming away with two conference wins to improve to an overall record of 9-1. After topping Wesleyan on Wednesday, the Mammoths overcame Williams on Saturday to clinch the 2018 Little III title.

The Amherst men’s hockey team concluded its 2017-2018 season this weekend with a disappointing 5-1 loss to Colby in the NESCAC quarterfinals. As the No. 3 seed in the tournament, the Mammoths were favored to overcome the sixth-seeded Mules.

However, Colby came out firing and avenged the 5-1 loss they suffered at Amherst’s hands earlier in the month. With the win, the Mules advanced to a semifinal matchup next weekend against Wesleyan.

Max Roche ’19 tallied what ended up being Amherst’s only goal of the game in the final few minutes of the first period.

The Amherst men’s hockey team concluded their regular season this past weekend with two NESCAC contests on the road.
Coming away with a loss and a tie, the Mammoths finished third in the conference standings with an overall record of 11-8-5.
On Saturday, the Mammoths took on archrival Williams.
The Ephs got off to a quick start, as Daniel Woolfenden notched the first goal of the matchup only 2:51 into the first period.
Less than five minutes later, Jack Fitzgerald ’19 tied things up with a one-timer into the bottom left corner of the Williams net.

In what was a great weekend for the Amherst men’s hockey team, the Mammoths claimed two huge NESCAC wins to bring their overall record to 11-7-4 and leave the team second in the conference standings.

“We’re coming into our own at just the right time,” junior Jack Fitzgerald said.

“We’re playing well and feeling really confident as we approach the postseason. It’s exciting to see it all come together.”

On Saturday, the Mammoths hosted NESCAC rival Tufts.

Despite their strong start to the season, the Amherst men’s hockey team found themselves in a bit of a rut, concluding their interterm schedule with five losses and two wins and dropping to 7-6-3 overall.

“We’re creating a lot of quality chances,” junior forward Stanley Brenner said. “Sometimes the puck just doesn’t bounce your way. We’ll start finding the back of the net; we just have to be patient.”

The Amherst men’s hockey team has had a solid start to the 2017-18 season. After four games, the Mammoths boast an overall record of 2-1-1 and are feeling confident heading into two big NESCAC matchups this weekend.
“We’ve looked pretty good so far,” senior captain Patrick Mooney said. “We need to work on our consistency a little, but we definitely have the pieces to make some noise this year.”

After a hard fought battle in the third round of the NCAA tournament, the Amherst men’s soccer team concluded its season with a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to the University of Rochester on Saturday, Nov. 18. With the loss, the Mammoths finished their 2017 campaign with a 12-4-3 record.

“Looking back on the season, I am very proud of our team’s performance,” senior captain Sam Malnik said. “We entered the season with a completely new starting lineup, and we still finished second in the NESCAC with a Sweet Sixteen appearance. There’s a lot to celebrate.”
