Last weekend Wesleyan played Middlebury and won 9-8 in OT. I made a video about my trip up there. This weekend, Middlebury hosted Conn College and walked away with a very convincing win. Wesleyan, on the other hand, traveled up to Lewiston, ME to take on Bates and they got beat 12-7. Hopefully we’ll get photos of that one soon as well! This is a huge win for the Bobcats, who were struggling big time and a big loss for Wesleyan. The loss hurts them in their Pool C concention but may be just what the Cardinals needed.
Bates has typically done well early, knocked off a better team and then suffered as the season wore on. This year they started slowly, losing game after game. With this win over Wesleyan, who was ranked 13th in the country, Bates may be on the right track and headed towards a competitive end of the Spring. They definitely have some athletes, and shot extremely well against Wes. They slid hard and Wesleyan rarely found the cutter. Great game by the Bobcats overall and Wesleyan’s O clearly has some work to do.
Thanks to Matt Vita for the photos! Keep up the great work!!!
