MEN’S HOCKEY | Red Struggles to Get Bid to NCAA

Print More


After a series of dramatic overtime wins against Harvard and Clarkson, the men’s ice hockey team’s season came to an abrupt end on Friday with a 5-2 semifinal loss to eventual champion Union. The loss ended the Red’s quest for its first ECAC title since 2010 and dashed the team’s chance to receive an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament.

Union, who came into the tournament as the top seed, was the toughest opponent for the Red during its regular season, with Cornell having lost to the Dutchmen in both of its regular season contests. After advancing past the Red, Union beat Colgate in the championship game, 5-2, to claim its third straight ECAC title.
