NEW LONDON, Conn.--Tyler Whitney (Wakefield, Mass.) had a goal and an assist to lead the 11th ranked Trinity College men's hockey team to a 4-1 victory at Dayton Arena Saturday.
The Bantams evened their record at 1-1 with the win, while the Camels slipped to 0-2 with the loss.
The Camels got on the board first with 5:15 remaining in the first with a shorthanded tally. Sophomore forward Kevin Doyle (Orleans, Mass.) won a battle for the puck in the neutral zone and skated down the ice into the corner. Doyle was able to rifle a pass thru the slot to Jeff Thompson (Shelburne, Vt.) who one-timed one past Morin to make it a 1-0 game.
But the Bantams cashed in on a power play with 1:52 remaining to even things up at one. Charlie Zuccarini (Fairfield, Conn.) made a nice pass to Liam Feeney (Foxboro, Mass.) who unloaded with a slap shot from the middle of the blue line that was redirected by Brandon Cole into the net.
Dan Driscoll (Peabody, Mass.) nearly put the Camels on the board again with 5:20 to play in the second but his wrist shot was saved by Trinity College junior net-minder Alex Morin (St. Hubert, Quebec). With 3:51 remaining, the Bantams had a prime scoring opportunity but Anthony Sabitsky's (Slickerville, N.Y.) scoring bid was denied by Cooney on his shot from the left circle.
The Bantams finally were able to break the tie when Whitney (Wakefield, Mass.) scored a power play goal with 37.5 seconds left in the middle period. Barclay Gammill (New Canaan, Conn.) added an insurance marker with 13:51 remaining in regulation and Ryan Pfeffer (Canton, Mass.) closed out the scoring with 4:11 remaining for the visitors.
Junior Tim Cooney (Rocky Hill, Conn.) turned aside 24 shots in his first start of the season for the Camels.
Morin had 24 saves in the win for the Bantams.
