In a hockey-filled weekend at Underhill Arena, the Bobcats gave their home crowd plenty of excitement as they competed and hosted the showcase tournament. Friday evening, Bates fell to the University of Maine, 1-5, in a non-league game. Eve Boonseng '11 provided the Bobcats' lone goal as Kristy Zera '12 minded the net. Saturday afternoon, the Bobcats met their first competitors from Delaware Valley, defeating the University of Maryland 7-3. Sunday morning, the Bobcats were down 1-2 against American University, but came back with less than a minute left in the game to tie things up 2-2. The score remained tied after overtime. Concluding her season in style was Eve Boonseng '11, who will soon be leaving Maine to study abroad in South Africa.
Thanks again to all the teams for coming to the showcase, especially those who had a long trek to make.
