Amherst took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission after junior forward Bob Miele (Woburn, MA) and DiNardo each found the back of the net in the opening period. Senior Amherst tri-captain Chris Orszulak (Longmeadow, MA) and DiNardo then opened the second stanza with a pair of goals to give the Jeffs a commanding 4-0 lead at the 9:09 mark.
Bowdoin senior Mike Carosi (Warwick, RI) responded just 1:39 later with the Polar Bears' only score of the game to cut the deficit to 4-1, but the momentum was short-lived as Amherst senior forward Stephen Tornabene (San Mateo, CA) put the game out of reach at 15:26 with his fourth goal of the season.
Senior Rob Hill (Averil Park, NY) added an insurance tally for Amherst 11:40 into the third period to set the final score at 6-1, assisted by DiNardo and fellow senior Jim Smith (Rochester, MN).
Senior Amherst goaltender Nick Rieser (Northfield, IL) was stellar between the pipes with 23 saves, narrowly missing his second shutout of the season. Meanwhile, Bowdoin's Colin Robinson (Mason, NH), Mike Healey (Hamden, CT) and Brian Losier (Waltham, MA) each played 20 minutes in goal for the Polar Bears and combined for 20 saves in defeat.
The Jeffs return to action tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 for a pivotal NESCAC matchup against visiting Colby College (13-6-1/11-2-1)-currently in second place in the NESCAC with 23 points.
