HARTFORD, Conn. -- Senior goaltender Kelsie Fralick (West Chester, Pa.) made 31 saves to lead the visiting Connecticut College Camels to a 2-1 victory over the Trinity College Bantams in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's ice hockey action this evening at Williams Rink. After the teams tied, 2-2, last night in the season opener in Hartford, the Bantams fall to 0-1-1 overall and in the NESCAC, while the Camels improve to 1-0-1 overall and in the league.

All three goals in the game were scored in the first 13:26 of action, beginning with a power-play redirection by Camel senior forward Amelia Dineen (Arlington, Mass.) just 3:09 into the contest. Trinity senior forward Lauren Fitzgerald (Milton, Mass.) answered with an unassisted tally eight minutes into the opening stanza, but Connecticut College went ahead for good on a goal by senior forward Alexa de la Guardia (Flower Mond, Texas) with 6:34 left before the first break.

Fralick and Trinity sophomore netminder Claudia Escue (Carbondale, Colo.) both turned away each of the 13 shots they faced in the second period, while Escue had nine saves in the third period for a total of 28. Fitzgerald got ma decent look with Escue pulled in the final seconds, but Fralick made her sixth save of the final period to cement the win for the Camels. Connecticut College sophomore defender Jane Pagano (Erie, Pa.) and Julie Beattie (Livonia, Mich.) both assisted on each of the Camel goals.
