Bates Knocks off No. 17 Wesleyan

A non-releasable one-minute penalty called against Bates with 1:04 left in the game immediately put its 7-5 lead into jeopardy. But Wesleyan unleashed two shots that sailed wide, the second of which Kazarian was the first to track out of bounds, giving Bates a critical possession.

Kazarian soon found himself isolated with the ball in front of his goal, with a single Wesleyan attacker advancing on him. But the Bates goalie faked out the Cardinal before releasing the ball up the middle for Bates' final clear, enabling the Bobcats to run out the rest of the game clock.

Two years ago, Bates defeated 13th-ranked Cardinals 12-7 in Lewiston, and in last year's match-up in Middletown, the Bobcats upset the 20th-ranked Cardinals 6-5 in overtime.

Bates will next play its first game as the visiting team this season on Wednesday, playing at Bowdoin at 7:00 pm. Wesleyan will host New York Maritime in a non-conference game at the same time.
