Women win ECAC tourney, Men advance to Semis

The #4 ranked Dartmouth women’s hockey team got revenge for two previous losses this season to top-ranked Harvard by blowing them out 7-2 to win the ECAC Tournament and advance to the Women’s Frozen Four in Duluth, Minnesota.

Meanwhile, the men fell behind 2-1 after only two minutes of play, but Nick Boucher would shut down Colgate the rest of the way and Dartmouth would tack on 4 more goals to win the game 5-2 and the quarterfinal series two games to one. Dartmouth advances to the ECAC semifinals in Albany, NY next Friday, where they will take on 2nd seeded Harvard. In the other semifinal, top-seeded and #2 Cornell will face 5th seeded Brown, who upset Yale two games to one in New Haven. This will be the first time in ECAC history all four semi-finalists are Ivies.

After relying solely on the top line for all the scoring during the first two games of the series, it was a balanced attack tonight that worked for the Green. Each line tallied a goal before Lee Stempniak got an empty netter for his 4th goal and 8th point (4-4-8) on the weekend.
