MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (Nov. 16) - Senior Tommy Hartnett and freshman Elliott Vorel each netted a pair of goals to power Wesleyan past visiting Conn. College in men's ice hockey action here this afternoon. Wesleyan improved to 2-0 both overall and in NESCAC play while Conn fell to 0-2.
Freshman James Kline scored the game-winning goal less than a minute after Conn had evened the count at 2-2 in the second period. Scoring through traffic in front of the Camel net off an assist by freshman Nick Malone at 5:02 of the middle period, Kline registered his first goal of the season. Vorel, who had enjoyed a five-point game the night before in a 5-4 Wesleyan win over Tufts, scored the final two goals for the Cardinals as his insurance goal at 12:15 of the second period off a rebound with assists to Hartnett, who posted a three-point game, and freshman Cole Morrissette, made it 4-2. With the Camel keeper on the bench in favor of an extra skater late in the contest, Vorel got control of the puck in center ice and turned around to fire the puck into an empty net with 1:09 remaining on the clock. It was his fourth goal of the young season to go along with three assists. Hartnett had spotted Wesleyan leads of 1-0 and 2-1 with his first-period markers as he now has five points on the season.
