Any thoughts?

Trinity > Bowdoin
LF > UMB

Trinity vs. Lake Forest should be a tight game, goalie may take it for Trinity, but a gut feeling gives it to LF.

This is a HUGE opportunity for the Polar Bears!!!
I have only seen Trinity once, in their 3-2 loss at Amherst. Iwachiw had a great game and it all came down to special teams play. That said, if Bowdoin gets a solid game from Lessard, I think they will beat Trinity, as the Polar Bears exhibit much more offensive firepower than I saw the Bantams muster against the Lord Jeffs (although Komarek is an outstanding offensive D).
UMB has played better of late, but if Lake Forest is the cream of the west and the Polar Bears take care of business with Trinity, I could see Bowdoin knock off Lake Forest and make a case for a return to the DIII top 10!
These are of course "Obserbearations" and may be a tad jaded or expecting a bit too much from the "cubby" Polar Bears.
GO U BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

O-Bear -- your prognostications aren't usually that far off.

I agree that the Beaudin offense will carry the day over Trinity, but
I have to believe there is something to Lake Forest this year and that the Westies will run the table.

While I think Bowdoin will keep it close, I don't see them winning this tournament. Trinity tied Amherst the first game and only lost by 1 goal in the second. My wager is on Trinity. I have to admit though, Lake Forest is certainly up and coming and could steal the show. Since I haven't seen any of the western conference teams play yet this season, it's hard to judge how competitive LF will be. I guess I'll see on the 2nd...

Let us remember Bowdoin defeated Trinity twice last season, in Hartford no less, and I think that will give the young Polar Bears confidence, or at least enable them to play without fear. This season's Bowdoin team is a significant up grade, especially on offense. I recall former Elmira Coach Nemetz-Carlson commenting that nothing is more dangerous than a young team that does not know they are supposed to lose. Granted, Iwachiw can at least tie anyone, anytime, but Bowdoin's D should be able to hold off the Bantams. Lessard appears to have won the starting job and hopefully we will look back at this as the moment she "comes of age" as a big time tender.
On paper it is hard to imagine UMB beating Lake Forest. The Lake Forest special teams do not appear strong and UMB's Hallett has a decent saves percentage, so who knows? This seems a sort of litmus test for the "best in the west" and it will basically be all we have to go on, as there is so little east-west cross over this season.
GO U BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two years ago, Trinity made great strides and surprised some people. Last year, I thought they took a step back. This year is still very young, but based on their showing vs. Amherst, it looks like they've returned to the form they showed two years ago.

Not saying Bowdoin can't beat them, but it would surprise me.

This will be an interesting tourney to watch. I think we will see how good LFC is. Looking at the schedule, UMB seems on paper to be the weakest of the 4, so LFC got the easiest draw, and we will see how LFC matches up with the eastern teams after playing in the Codfish Bowl.

Trinity 3 - Bowdoin 0. Bowdoin took eight penalties to Trinity's two, to which Trinity converted one of them for the first goal of the game. Shots on goal Trinity 29 - Bowdoin 24.

Trinty v. Bowdoin-- Yesterday Trinity was clearly the better team but it was closer than a 3-0 game.

Several (but not all) Trinity lines struggled with the breakout but it was the most potent offensive pressure in the 5-6 games I have seen them play this season. Hope it continues today.

Stong play by Iwachiw, several defenders and a number of the forwards.

P.S. Was surprised that a large number of Bowdoin fans sat in front of the Trinity bench rather in front of their own.

Lake Forest defeats Bowdoin in the consolation, 3-2 in OT. Herring had a hat trick, bringing her goal total to 18 on the season
