The Amherst women’s hockey team lost a tough game Saturday against Trinity in the NESCAC semifinals. The Jeffs fell to the Bantams 2-1 in a contest that lasted into overtime. With the win, Trinity moved on to face top-seeded Middlebury, whom they eventually beat in overtime to become NESCAC champions.

The Amherst women’s hockey team had a nail-biter of a game this Saturday in the NESCAC quarterfinal against Colby. The second-seeded Jeffs defeated the seventh-seeded Mules 2-1, in overtime. The win was crucial for the Jeffs, and they will move on in the highly competitive NESCAC tournament having obtained redemption for last year’s loss to Colby in the quarterfinals.

“In the NESCAC, the teams are all extremely competitive,” said Erin Martin ’16. “Anyone can win any day. The one and eight seed went into four OT’s. We play in the most competitive league in all of Div. III.”

The women’s ice hockey team capped off a long regular season this weekend with a win and a loss against Bowdoin. Their win on Saturday, 4-3 and loss on Sunday, 3-2, left the Jeffs with a 16-4-4 record for the regular season. In addition, the Jeffs remained second in the highly competitive NESCAC with a record of 10-3-3 behind rival Middlebury. Coming into the last weekend of the season, the Jeffs knew they would have to execute their game with few mistakes, as Bowdoin is a talented team.

With two tough games at NESCAC rival Trinity this past weekend, the Amherst women’s hockey team moved to 15-3-4. Coming off a successful campaign against Williams last week, where Jeffs goalie Yuna Evans ’17 was named NESCAC Player of the Week, the Jeffs faltered slightly this weekend with a 1-1 tie and 5-2 loss at Trinity College.

The Amherst women’s hockey team continued its dominant season this weekend with two wins over rival Williams. The wins kept Amherst at second place in the highly competitive NESCAC, still trailing behind first place Middlebury. The Jeffs’ in-conference record is an impressive 9-1-2. Their overall record stands 14-2-3. Two different national coaching polls have placed the Jeffs at No. 9 and No. 7 in the country.

Although campus was fairly quiet over interterm, the women’s ice hockey team remained loud and on fire during the three-week break. The Jeffs went 5-0-2 over interterm, bringing their season record to 11-1-3. The break moved Amherst up to the top of the NESCAC rankings ahead of opponents Middlebury and Connecticut College. The Jeffs’ impressive run has also caught the attention of national rankings. The last poll had Amherst ranked at No. 8, while the ranking has the Jeffs at No. 6.

Perfection. A word rarely used in our language, but it does describe the Amherst College football team’s 2014 season. The 17-9 victory over Williams on Saturday, Nov. 8 sealed the unblemished season for the Jeffs and earned the team a NESCAC championship all to themselves. “Ending the career as undefated NESCAC champs with this group of seniors is a dream come true,” Colman Duggan ’15 said.
