The Amherst men’s ice hockey team took on two NESCAC rivals in the semifinal and final round of the NESCAC tournament this weekend. After a win over Middlebury in the semifinals of the NESCAC tournament the purple and white fell to Trinity in the finals, concluding their 2015-16 season.

At the 8:46 mark in the still scoreless first period, John Festa ’19 scored his first collegiate goal to give Amherst the lead. The Panthers had their first power play of the game but were unable to answer as the period ended 1-0.
