BOSTON, Mass. - The Trinity College Bantams and the Williams College Ephs will play a men's ice hockey game at Fenway Park as part of Frozen Fenway 2014 on Tuesday, January 7. The game, which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. with Williams serving as the home team, is the second half of an NCAA Division III doubleheader that evening that begins with a Salem State/Mass.-Boston game at 4 p.m.
Frozen Fenway is a 17-day series running from Sunday, December 28, through Sunday, January 13, that includes two of Mayor Thomas M. Menino's free Community Skate Days for residents of the City of Boston, seven public and private high school ice hockey games, and nine men's and women's college ice hockey games.
"I am extremely pleased after many collaborative efforts between the staffs at Trinity and Williams, members of the NESCAC community, and those at Fenway Sports Management, to be announcing Trinity's upcoming participation in Citi Frozen Fenway 2014," said Trinity Director of Athletics Mike Renwick. "Trinity is extremely honored to be part of this event and is looking forward to showcasing what is so great about the NESCAC. I am very grateful to Fenway Sports Management for its dedication and efforts to make this happen for our College."
The Bantams last played a regular-season game outdoors in 2010-11 against Wesleyan at the University of Connecticut's Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn. as part of Whalers Hockey Fest.
"We couldn't be more excited for this unique opportunity, for our athletes and college community to be a part of a tremendous event. Such events allow Williams and our conference institutions to build community, engage alumni, or charitable organizations in new ways. We are quite pleased to be a part of what I am sure will be a special and fun night," said Williams Athletic Director.
Last year Williams finished 17-7-3 overall and 12-4-2 in the league, while Trinity finished 15-7-3 overall and 11-4-3 in conference play. Both teams met in the NESCAC Tournament semifinals, with Williams prevailing, 4-2.
