#9 Connecticut College 3 Williams College 0 Chester Posts 12th Career Blanking with 30 Saves for Camels

NEW LONDON Conn.—Katherine Chester (Mendham, N.J.) collected 14 of her 30 saves in the second period of action to lead the ninth ranked Connecticut College women's hockey team to a 3-0 victory against Williams College at Dayton Arena Friday night.

With her 12th career blanking, Chester and the Camels improved to 9-4-2 with a 6-3 record in the NESCAC. The Ephs slipped to 8-7 and are even with the Camels at 6-3 in conference action. The two teams will meet again tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. 

Junior forward Steph Izzi (Salley, S.C.), senior defender Julie Beattie (Livonia, Mich.) and first year forward Kylie Wilkes (Howell, N.J.) all contributed with score in the win.

Izzi put the Camels on top for good 8:27 in the opening frame with assists coming from Samantha Estes (Millis, Mass.) and Jordan Cross (Saugus, Mass.). In the second Chester and the Camel defense stood tall, thwarting a two woman advantage that spanned for 37 seconds. Beattie tacked on an insurance goal with 9:20 remaining in the frame. Kate Kohl (Chelmsford, Mass.) and Izzi assisted on the power play goal to make it a 2-0 game. 

Wilkes tacked on an unassisted goal early in the third to close out the scoring. Chester and the battle tested blue-liners stood tall the rest of the way, denying the Ephs on another two woman advantage in the latter stages of the third.

The Camels enjoyed a 36-30 advantage in shots. Connecticut College was 1-for-4 on its power play while the Ephs were scoreless in five chances with the extra skater.
