WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – Alexis Kalm's outstanding performance in goal, as well as scores by Courtney Gauthier and Nicolle Trivino, helped the Castleton University women's ice hockey team earn a 2-2-overtime draw with the Williams College Ephs on Tuesday evening at Lansing Chapman Rink.
Castleton moves to 4-4-2 overall, while Williams is now 4-2-1.
Returning from a three-game absence in the net, Kalm looked as sharp as ever against the Ephs, withstanding 43 shots-on-goal and surrendering just two scores. Playing to the tune of a .953 save percentage, Kalm held off the Ephs' power-play attack on two separate opportunities.
Late in the first stanza, Castleton got on the board to break the scoreless tie. On the extra-man opportunity, Courtney Gauthier connected with Aimee Briand and Jocelyn Forrest and put the puck past the goaltender.
Nicolle Trivino gave the Spartans a 2-0 advantage in the 10th minute of the second period as Casey Traill and Chanel Tvergyak assisted her. The goal scorer led the Spartans with five shots, while Jade Remillard notched four attempts on-goal.
Women's ice hockey is back in action at 4 p.m. on Friday as it faces UMass Boston in the first half of a weekend doubleheader at Spartan Arena. Wrapping up the first half of the season, Castleton welcomes the Suffolk University Rams at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
