BRUNSWICK, ME - The Bowdoin College men's hockey team snapped a two-game losing streak with a lopsided 8-2 win over visiting Amherst College on Friday night. The Polar Bears improved to 17-2-3 (14-1-3 NESCAC) on the year, while Amherst fell to 6-12-5 (6-8-4 NESCAC) with the loss.

The Polar Bears opened the scoring 11:28 into the first period when Albert Mayer took a pass just outside the blue line, raced into the zone and beat Amherst's Justin Jagher with a wrist shot. The Bears then went up by a pair at 14:27 when Sean Starke one-timed a Mike Carosi centering pass for a 2-0 lead. Bowdoin took a 3-0 edge inside the final minute of the opening period with Starke netting his second goal of the game.

The second stanza brought more of the same, with Bill Busch taking a Carosi and flipping home a backhanded score for a 4-0 lead. The Bears went up by five at 13:07 in the second when Andy McNerney beat Jagher, and added another goal just under a minute later at 13:53, when Chad Hart blasted a blue-line slap shot for a 6-0 advantage.

Dave Moore got Amherst on the board at 2:07 in the final period, when he bested Mike Healey to cut Amherst's deficit to 6-1. With 12:11 remaining in regulation Amherst scored again, with Scott Aldrich finding the back of the net. Bowdoin answered with two more goals at 16:22 and 19:19, however, with Michael Stevens and Marty Brisebois cracking the scoring column and securing a 8-2 victory for the Bears. Healey posted 21 saves in the win, while Jagher finished with 29.

Amherst entered the game fighting for the seventh and final spot in the upcoming NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament. The Jeffs conclude their 2001-02 regular season slate with a NESCAC matchup at Colby College Saturday at 3 p.m.
