Women's Season Ends in 2OT, Men Play the Waiting Game

Kira Hurley kept them in it the entire way, making an incredible 51 saves in 4+ periods of hockey, but Jennifer Sifers rifled a Liza Solley pass from the top of the right circle past Hurley in double OT, sending the Crimson into a frenzy and advancing them to the semifinals in Canton next weekend. Marie-Jo Gaudet scored Clarkson's goal halfway through the first assisted by Christine Balikowski. Harvard answered with Sifers first goal late in the second. Clarkson's season ends with an amazing 22-14-1 record, a solid record, for a solid team that will deserve NCAA consideration in the year to come, and will lead to spirited discussions over the next few weeks.

Clarkson's men's team will have to wait and watch tonight's matchup between Brown and St. Lawrence. Thanks to a 56 save effort from Adam D'Alba, Brown eeked out a 3-2 victory to force game 3 tonight at 7. If Brown wins tonight Clarkson heads to Harvard, if SLU is victorious the Knights head to Ithaca to face Cornell.
