NEW LONDON, Conn.--Chris Menard (Burlington, Mass.) and Zachary Lombardi (Locust Valley, N.Y.) scored two goals each to lead the Trinity College men's hockey team to a 6-0 blanking of Connecticut College in a NESCAC game played at Dayton Arena Saturday.
The Bantams improve their record to 1-0-1 with the win while the Camels fall to 0-2.
Junior net-minder Benjamin Coulthard (South Windsor, Conn.) made 33 saves en route to the blanking.
Connecticut College junior Mike Petchonka (Ridgefield, Conn.) had 31 saves in the setback for the hosts.
Trinity opened the scoring on the power play as Chris Menard scored with assists coming from his brother Jeffrey and Jordan So (Toronto, Ontario). Less than two minutes later at the 8:05 mark, Jackson Brewer induced a Camel turnover and fed Elie Vered (Ottawa, Canada) for a goal at point-blank distance. With 4:48 remaining in the first, the Bantams added a third goal in transition when Chris Menard put the finishing touches on a pass from Jeff Menard at the far post.
The Bantams tacked on two more scored in the second and one in the third to close out the 6-0 blanking.
Trinity out-shot the Camels 37-to-33 in the triumph and was 2-for-4 on the power play.
Connecticut College junior forward Will Einstein (New Canaan, Conn.) earned the third star for the hosts.
