"Women's Hockey Starts Fast as they Blast Mt. Holyoke and Beat UMaine"
Paul Lombardi, Assistant Sports Editor

The Bates Women's hockey team got off to a fast start to the season with big wins over Mount Holyoke College and the University of Maine. The Bobcats' record dropped to 2-1 with a loss to the University of Connecticut last Sunday.

The women's club team opened the season with a dominating 7-0 road win over Mount Holyoke. Emily Bectold '13, Kathleen Boyland '11, Shauna Mulvihill '12, Lauren Slipp '10 and Kara Sullivan '10 all scored for the Bobcats. Goalie Chelsea Bolton '12 earned the shutout as she played a flawless game in the net. In a non-league match against the Unviersity of Maine last Saturday, Bates dropped the Black Bears with a resounding 4-1 victory. Racehl Laaff '10 scored two goals for Bates in the team's home opener.

Bates lost its first game of the season on Sunday against the University of Connecticut. Fatigue was a factor as the team traveled four fours to Storrs, CT, to play its second game in less than 24 hours.

The team plays a non-traditional doubleheader with Northeastern this weekend. The teams will meet at the Underhill Arena at 2:30pm on Saturday before heading south the Massachusetts to face off at 11:15am.
