Bobcats Sweep Weekend In Style

After a win 4-3 win on the road versus rival MIT, the Bobcats still had two games remaining before they could call it a weekend. On Saturday, Bates was able to upset the division leading Holy Cross Crusaders 4-3 under Junior Matt Mosca's first start of the season. An overtime hat-trick performance by Sean Thomas '14 then sealed the sweep for Bates as they were able to take down St. Anslem. Mosca was able to get both wins on Saturday and Sunday, and although his groin was fine there, some knuckle problems might be arising.

Thomas and Johnson Shine in Comeback

Garrett Johnson '14 captured the elusive first career win and Junior Sean Thomas netted all four Bobcat goals in a comeback win over MIT. After being down 3-1 at the beginning of the second period Thomas was able to power the 'Cats back with 3 unanswered goals to seal the win. Thomas' first goal was pretty where he scored shorthanded on 2-1 off a Chris DeBrase '14 pass, where he proceeded to dangle the goalie and roof it backhand. The majority of his goals came from shots from near and outside the slot.

Thomas' Return Sparks First Win

In a situation where every game matters for the Bobcats, they needed to make sure they walked away with a win during their first game of the second semester. Playing against a second place Bridgewater State team, the 'Cats had to respond to the challenge. Sean Thomas '14 stepped up and netted both goals in his first game of the season as Bates went on to win 2-1.

Bobcats High Hopes For Round 2

It was a disappointing semester to say the least. Yet, the Bobcats still have their hopes high to make a playoff run this semester, and there is plenty to be excited about. Although there were some low-points (the DeBrase-Silvey mishap versus Merrimack being the lowest), this years' team showed some positive signs with the depth being the focal point. The team has had healthy scratches in most games this year, and that number will only increase this semester. Senior Bobby Coppersmith commented saying, "having too much depth is a good problem to have.
