Hamilton College Continentals Women’s Hockey in NESCAC Final

The fourth seed Hamilton College Continentals got a huge measure of revenge on Friday afternoon by defeating the one-seed Amherst Mammoths 2-1 on the Mammoths home ice.

The Mammoths were a thorn in the side of the Continentals last season and going into this season. They defeated Hamilton in the Final of the 2023 NESCAC Tournament. Two weeks later they knocked the Continentals out of the NCAA Tournament Semifinal ending their season.

This season the teams opened the season against each other with Amherst winning both games 2-1 (one went to overtime).

That’s all in the past now as the Continentals have set themselves up for a NESCAC Tournament Final on Saturday at 4:00 pm against the winner of the Colby vs Middlebury game. The Championship game will be played at Orr Rink in Amherst.

Hamilton got two first-period goals from Sami Quackenbush and Lilly Truchon and that was all they needed. Goaltender Mac Donovan was spectacular, making 34 saves to secure the win for Hamilton. Donovan nearly had a shutout, but it was broken with a goal by Rylee Glennon with 2:27 remaining in the third period.
