Playoff-bound Cornell women’s hockey will travel north of the Arctic Circle this weekend to take on No. 2 seed Clarkson (26-3-5, 14-3-5 ECAC) in the ECAC Quarterfinals. The best-of-three series features games on Friday and Saturday at 3 p.m. at Clarkson’s Cheel Arena in Potsdam, New York. The tie breaker would be on Sunday, if necessary.

Cornell Women’s Hockey Clinches Spot In Playoffs After Pair of Wins

Cornell had been ahead for the entire game, and time was running out on the clock. Harvard pulled its goalie in a last-chance effort. With the Lynah Faithful on their feet and 26 seconds left on the clock, the Crimson knotted the game up at two apiece. The rink grew quiet. Maybe it was the hard wooden bleachers, but nobody sat back down.

The only thing in common between the two games was the 4-2 final score.

Women’s Hockey Looks to Snap Losing Streak

Four weeks ago, Cornell scored six goals against the Bulldogs and notched 48 shots against the Bears in a tie.

The final score of a hockey game is not always indicative of how both teams played. Quinnipiac was very strong on Friday, with impressive individual performances that demonstrated why they are first in the ECAC and ranked fourth in the country.
