Spartans drop two over weekend

An 0-2 weekend against Southern Maine and Plymouth State was not exactly what the Castleton women’s ice hockey team had envisioned.On Friday night, the Spartans dropped a 2-0 decision to Southern Maine and followed up that performance on Saturday afternoon with an identical score to Plymouth.

“I would say that we worked hard in the game against USM, but did not get as many offensive opportunities as we should have,” Castleton coach Bethany Torrice said. “USM was more hungry for a win and played us tough.”

Torrice said that the team’s inability to score goals is what led to Castleton’s demise against Plymouth.

“USM was more disciplined and hardworking then we were,” Torrice said. “Plymouth took advantage of their opportunities and we could not catch a break against them.”

The Spartans fall to 5-15-2 overall and 3-12-1 in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Castleton hosts the University of Massachusetts-Boston on Friday at 7p.m. at Spartan Arena.
