Jeffs Bury WNEC, 10-2

December 10, 2004

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College menís hockey team outshot visiting non-conference foe Western New England College (WNEC) 51-12 en route to a 10-2 blowout victory on Friday night. Eight different players lit the lamp for the Jeffs, who improved to 4-1-2 with the victory.

WNEC grabbed an early lead as senior Kevin Leonard stole the puck at the blue line and found the net on the breakaway for a short-handed score. However, the lead would be shortlived as Amherst first-year Andrew Schremp (Denver, CO) pilfered a pass in front of the net and fired it home to even the count just 1:18 later. Amherst sophomore Sean Ellis (Springfield, MA) took a pass from classmate Erik Lund (Edina, MN) and blasted it past WNEC junior goalie Brian Essig (Saddle Brook, NJ) at the 8:48-mark and the Jeffs would never look back. Amherst went on to tally six consecutive goals over the next 30 minutes, including two from senior co-captain Beau Kretzman (Edina, MN), to build an 8-1 lead at the end of the second session. Leonard scored another goal for the Golden Bears 1:23 before the second intermission, but it was too little, too late.

Also scoring for Amherst were seniors Roy Mabrey (Needham, MA), Scott Aldrich (Wilmington, MA) Brad Craigen (Kitchener, Ontario) and Bill Jenkins (Edina, MN) and rookie Gregg Adamo (Manalapan, NJ), while Craigen, classmate Marc Russell (Essex, VT) and junior Steve Nelson (Wayzata, MN) each dished out a pair of assists.

Junior goalie Sean Lynch (Essex Junction, VT) needed just 10 saves to pick up the win in his first start of the year, while Essig and first-year Jamie Babineau (Medway, MA) collected 15 and 26 saves, respectively, for WNEC, which fell to 1-7-1. Amherst returns to action tomorrow (Saturday) at 7 p.m. in a non-conference matchup at top-ranked Middlebury College.
