The women's ice hockey team has been trying to find its rhythm since December, currently hovering in the middle of the NESCAC standings with a record of four wins and four losses.

The team started the new year with a dominating performance at the Codfish Bowl, held at UMass-Boston. Bowdoin easily defeated its first round opponent, Sacred Heart, 7-2. Maddie Baird '15, Chelsea MacNeil '15, Kayte Holtz '13, and Stephanie Ludy '13 each scored a goal, but all eyes were on Kim Tess-Wanat '13.

She totaled six points in the game, nearly bettering the school record of seven set in 1993 by Nan Gorton '96.

In the championship game the next day, she earned the tournament's MVP award by scoring the game-winning goal in the last five seconds of overtime against UMass-Boston. Kayla Lessard '13 and Emily Tang '14 earned All-Tournament honors.

Following the wins at UMass-Boston, Bowdoin split a two-game series against conference foe Connecticut College, winning the first game 3-2, but losing the second 4-2.

The Polar Bears next played an out-of-conference game against New Hampshire's St. Anselm and lost 2-1. Looking to turn its momentum around, Bowdoin swept Wesleyan in a two-game series. Holtz scored a pair of game-winning goals against the Cardinals, and she was named NESCAC Player of the Week.

This past weekend, the team traveled to Vermont to play conference leader Middlebury, where it was swept in two extremely close games. In each game, Middlebury started a late rally in the last two minutes of the third period to come back and win 2-1 and 3-2.

The team has a two-game home series against Williams this weekend. The games will be at 7 p.m. tonight and 3 p.m. tomorrow.
