NESCAC Official Release and Playoff Preview
You can find the league's official weekly release here. Cody Skinner (F, Sr.) from Williams was selected as the player of the week. From the release: "Skinner scored twice in two wins over the weekend. His goal gave the Ephs a 2-0 lead over Amherst, in an eventual 4-2 win on Friday night. He then netted the
gamewinner with 11 seconds left in overtime for a 4-3 win over Hamilton, a game which the Ephs trailed 3-0."
As we mentioned yesterday, you can find the league's official seeding and playoff preview here. Interesting background including the fact that even though Trinity and Wesleyan are just 20 miles apart, the two schools have never met in the NESCAC playoffs; or the surprising tidbit that Hamilton has a 2-1 postseason edge over Bowdoin. Check it out if you haven't already done so.
