NEW LONDON, CT – Junior net-minder Greg Parker (Trenton, ON) made 13 of his 31 saves in the third period Saturday, leading host Connecticut College (2-2) to a 1-0 shutout victory against Amherst College (1-2)  in the first round of the Douglas W. Roberts Tournament at Dayton Arena.   

Junior co-captain Sean Driscoll (Peabody, MA) accounted for the game’s only score with 14:20 remaining in regulation. Jordan Gray (Mississauga, ON) centered the puck to Driscoll, who snuck one inside the left post. Brett Moore (Medfield, MA) assisted on the score, notching his third point in the past two games. Amherst carried an eight-game winning streak against the Camels into Saturday’s action.

Cole Anderson (Eckville, AB) finished with 20 saves for the Lord Jeffs. Parker recorded his 1,300th collegiate save and the second shutout of his prolific playing career with the Camels.

Connecticut College and Trinity College will meet in Sunday’s Championship game at 4 p.m. Wesleyan University and Amherst College will face off in the 1 p.m. consolation game. Wesleyan defeated Amherst earlier this season by a 1-0 margin.

In the first game, the Trinity College Bantams (2-1) held off a pesky Wesleyan University (1-2) squad in a 3-2 victory. The Bantams rallied from a 2-1 deficit to vanquish the Cardinals.  

Naoto Hamashima (Tokyo, Japan) scored the go-ahead goal at 2:35 of the middle period that would prove to be the game-winner. First-year Mike DeMayo (Seaford, NY) assisted on the tying and game-winning scores for the Bantams.  

Junior Joseph Hanson (Weymouth, MA) was impressive between the pipes, stopping 40 Cardinal shots. The Bantams skated off 10-of-their 11 penalties for an excellent 91 percent efficiency.

Anthony DePietto (Westbury, NY) and David Layne (Flourtown, PA) scored goals for Wesleyan. Tim Archibald (Wellesley, MA) had 28 saves in the setback.
