Making 33 saves in the first of back-to-back NESCAC games vs. #7-ranked Bowdoin Fri., Jan. 11, Ashleigh Corvi '13 (#35, main photo) added 44 saves in the second game the following day. The Polar Bears revailed in both contests, 4-1 in game one and 7-2 in game two. Six of Bowdoin's goals came during the power play, one while Bowdoin enjoyed a two-player advantage, and another was an empty netter. Thus Corvi was only touched for four even-strength goals by the powerhouse Polar Bears, who extended their unbeaten streak this season to 11 games.
Wesleyan did get off to a good start via the power play in game two as Glenn Hartman-Mattson '14 (#6, photo insert upper right) took a feed to the front of the Bowdoin net by Cara Jankowski '15 and punched the puck home just 1:45 into the contest. The lead lasted nearly the entire period as Bowdoin drew even on a redirection with 1:04 left in the first period. Bowdoin took the lead for good with a pair of power-play tallies just 23 seconds apart early in the second frame. Bowdoin ednded the second period holding a 5-1 edge.
Jordan Schildhaus '15 added her team-leading seventh goal of the year at 6:05 of the third period to cut the difference to 5-2. Jankowski made it a two-point game as did Hartman-Mattson with the assists on the goal. Two more power-play goals, both on a five-minute advantage, accounted for the final score.
The first matchup was a 2-1 game until Bowdoin got the insurabce goal with 6:04 to play and added an empty-netter in the last minute. Schildhaus had a two-goal series with the lone Wesleyan tally, again assisted by Jankowski, who helped set up all three Wesleyan goals against Bowdoin.
Over the two games, Bowdoin owned a 90-42 margin in total shots on goal.
Ahead for the Cardinals is another home NESCAC series, this time with nearby Conn. College Sat., Jan. 19 and Sun., Jan. 20.
