NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Connecticut College women's ice hockey team fell to No. 4 Norwich by a 2-0 score on Tuesday evening at Dayton Arena.
Connecticut College (3-2-2) outshot the Cadets by a lopsided 10-2 margin during the first period, but it was the visitors that were able to cash in on their limited chances. Amanda Conway put home the only goal of the first period to give her team a 1-0 advantage heading into the first intermission.
Even though the Camels were still able to control play and outshoot Norwich again in the second period, they had nothing to show for it through 40 minutes of play. Conway came through again at the 6:49 mark of the third period by finishing passes from Alyssa Hulst and Sophie McGovern, and the hosts were unable to answer.
Freshman Carly Denora (Verona, N.J.) made 13 saves between the pipes for the Camels, who were playing their third straight contest against a nationally-ranked opponent. Emily Lambert of Norwich (8-2), which won its sixth consecutive game, turned away all 24 shots she faced.
Connecticut College will play one more game before breaking for final exams when it hosts Manhattanville on Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m.
