Cornell capitalized on three tallies in a 2:37 span to advance past Harvard, 5-2, in the semifinals of the ECAC tournament in Lake Placid this afternoon. Junior David Francis scored twice as the Red put four pucks behind Oliver Jonas (and added an empty-net goal late in the third) on just 25 shots. Meanwhile, junior netminder Matt Underhill stopped 45 of 47 shots to send the Red into the finals of the tournament against St. Lawrence, who defeated Dartmouth 2-0.
Cornell will be making its first appearance in the final game since it took home the trophy in the 1997 season. Also scoring for the Red were sophomores Sam Paolini and Stephen Baby and freshman Ben Wallace.
