Incredible Effort to Seize Founders League Championship!

Westminster hosted a talented Hotchkiss team tonight at Jackson Rink. As the game unfolded, it became clear that this would be a tight game as each team battled to get on the board first. Westminster goalie Mandy Busky '21 worked to keep her team in it through two scoreless periods. Finally with just eight minutes left, Westminster capitalized on a play in the neutral zone. Amelia Molin '23 channeled a player and when the puck came free she stopped right on it and sent a pass to Taylor Adams '20 who then broke free from her defender to be one-on-one with the goalie. Adams took a quick shot and beat the goalie five-hole for the 1-0 lead. Hotchkiss did not back down and answered the goal with sustained pressure in the Westminster end. Busky came up big again and defenseman Sam DeLeo '21 made incredible plays on the penalty kill to protect the score. With just two minutes left, defenseman Betsy Winslow '21 gathered the puck just inside the Westminster zone and sent it to a breaking Adams who again attacked the net sending a hard shot off the cross-bar. Luckily, Molin was there to collect the rebound and send it to the back of the net for the 2-0 lead. The Martlets played smart in the final two minutes and when the final buzzer sounded celebrated their first Founders League Championship since 2013. Of note is the hard work and commitment of all Sixth Formers, Megan Rittenhouse, Abby Munger, Jenny Guider and Taylor Adams. Their grit and grace has allowed for incredible growth in the program throughout their time as Martlets. The win was a nice way to honor their hard work and contributions to the team. The team will enjoy it tonight, but it’s back to work on Wednesday as the team faces a talented Williston squad.
