Polar Bears look to redeem loss
Since the draw against Middlebury, the men's team has outscored opponents14 to 0, holding teams scoreless for 270 total minutes, with outstanding goalkeeping from veteran Travis Derr '04 as well as Daniel Hackett '07, Gregory Levin '06, and Lucas Bare '06.
With key members of the defense Mike Crowley '06 and Willy Waters '06 out with injuries, the men's team will truly test their depth of talent this weekend in a game against the Connecticut College Camels. Despite the injuries, Derr is confident in the abilities of the consistently-solid Bucky Jenks '05 and first-year sensation John Hollis '07 will be able to fill Mike and Willy's role in the backfield. While captain Danny Sullivan said, "My role as a leader in the back has not changed and I too am confident in the depth of our team."
Bowdoin gained its most recent NESCAC win on the road against the Jumbos, where the Polar Bears dominated the game from start to finish, scoring three goals in just six shots.
Teammates attributed an inconsequential penalty shot miss from Andrew Russo '06, the team's go-to-goal scorer, to a slight lack of confidence, which resulted difficulties with Koopa Troopa Beach (a Mario Kart favorite). However, they are sure he'll quickly bounce back in time for this weekend.
On a side note, this All-NESCAC Second Team selection has netted at least one goal in each of the team's last five games, which is probably more relevant than his Nintendo-playing abilities.
The polar bears will look to continue holding opponents scoreless as
they face Connecticut College this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. beneath the pines.
Look for scoring from key returners Bobby Desilets '05, who scored a hat-trick
in the recent match against UNE, as well as the fiery and tenacious Tom
Bresnehan '05. Be sure to bring your folks by Pickard Field for what promises
to be an exciting match.
