One favorite who did not fall was Clarkson. The Golden Knights swept Cornell commandingly, 6-2 and 7-2, to take the series four points to none. Finally, Colgate took three games to knock off Vermont, losing 5-2 Friday before coming back to take the last two games 2-0 and 4-1.
So, this weekend the four survivors go to the ECAC tournament in Lake Placid, which Alfred and I invite you to join us in watching at Monty's Sports Bar in Magnolia Center. At 2pm Pacific Friday RPI takes on Colgate, and at five, it's Princeton and Clarkson. Saturday, the consolation game will be on at 2pm Pacific, followed by the championship at five o'clock. If you're interested in joining us, call the Mr. Squishy show at 893-2425. And a big thank-you to Empire Sports network of Buffalo for carrying the games live.
