Road Games

The Bobcats returned home today after a successful weekend away. Late Saturday night, in a game reminiscent of last season's 3rd place game at Nationals, Bates defeated Columbia 6-5 in OT thanks to a goal by Kathleen Boyland. On Sunday, the Bobcats traveled to Easthampton, MA to play Smith College. Down 2-1 with less than two minutes to go in the third period, Bates quieted the crowd as they fought back and tied up the game. The score remained at 2-2 through overtime. The Bobcats' record now stands at 3-0-1.

2008-2009 Season Begins!

We recently had some technical difficulties posting to the website, but are back in business now just as the season begins.

After a successful clinic with local youth, we began practice on the NESCAC-mandated November 1. After just six practices, we had our first game. On Saturday, November 8 at Fairfield, Bates Hockey began the season with a 13-5 victory at the Wonderland of Ice. Megan Arnold made her debut in net and Kathleen Boyland, Eve Boonseng, Caitlin Demko, Anne Mueller, and Rachel Laaf all contributed with goals. Special congratulations to Kara Sullivan, Rachel Kaplan, and Tess Glancey, who scored their first career goals.

On Sunday, Bates defeated Wheaton College in a friendly exhibition game. Next weekend, Bates makes the trek to Columbia University for a Saturday night game, followed by a game at Smith on Sunday evening.
