Williams College's Amanda Reisman scored two goals and assisted on another in the Ephs' 5-1 NESCAC win against the Hamilton College Continentals at Williams' Lansing Chapman Rink on Friday night.

Hamilton (1-2-0, 1-2 NESCAC) has played all three of its games away from home. The Continentals will make it four in a row on Saturday, Nov. 23 when they stay in Williamstown, Mass., for another clash with the Ephs at 3 p.m.

Williams (1-2-0, 1-2) picked up its first win after the Ephs were swept at Colby College last weekend. Williams received votes in this week's USCHO.com Division III Top 10 poll.

Hamilton cut its deficit in half on a goal by Nancy Loh '22 at 3:35 in the third period. Mya Berretta '22 dug the puck out of the corner and sent it up to Lexi Takashima '22 who was positioned above the right faceoff circle. Takashima wristed the puck toward the net and Loh skated in from the right side and redirected it past the goaltender near the right post for her second goal this season. Loh has 13 goals in her career with the Continentals and is the only player with more than one this season. Berretta is tied for second on the team with two points.

Nearly four minutes later, the Ephs led 5-1 as Reisman did all her damage in the third period. She scored on a feed from Maddie Tix at 4:10, passed to Tix for another goal at 5:59, and Meghan Halloran found Reisman for the last goal at 7:28.

Avery Dunn gave Williams a 1-0 lead with 3:08 left in the first period, and Elizabeth Welch made it a two-goal advantage at 3:39 in the second. Michaela O'Connor had the assist on both goals.

Gab Venne '22 made 26 saves for Hamilton and Chloe Heiting turned away 11 shots for the Ephs. Both teams went 0-for-2 on the power play.
