Colby can’t stay with Trinity

Waterville, ME — The Colby College men’s hockey team stayed with Trinity College for more than two periods before the Bantams pulled away for a 5-2 victory on Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Adam Houli (Howell, N.J.) and Richard Hollstein (Pembroke, Mass.) both had two goals for Trinity, which moves to 14-6 overall and 11-5 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference heading into Saturday’s road game at Bowdoin College. Colby, which will host Wesleyan University on Saturday at 3 p.m., falls to 5-13-3 overall and 3-11-2 in league play.

Hollstein added another quick score at the start of the second period on a shorthanded goal at 2:55 from Joe Tierney (Reading, Mass.) who had two assists in the game.

Colby fought back and made it a 3-2 game after two periods. Jeoff Jarnot (Concord, N.H.) tallied at 12:43 and then Billy Crinnion (Smithtown, N.Y.) scored with 59 seconds left in the period. Crinnion and Wil Hartigan (Arlington, Mass.) had assists on Jarnot’s goal, while Jarnot and Michael Doherty (Lynnfield, Mass.) had the assists on the second goal.
