Yale To Celebrate NCAA Hockey Title On Monday
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Yale will celebrate the school’s first NCAA hockey championship with a rally at Ingalls Rink.
Monday’s rally is set for 5 p.m.
The Bulldogs beat the three top seeds in this year’s tournament to claim the title, including in-state rival Quinnipiac in Saturday’s championship game.
The Elis beat the Bobcats 4-0 for the title, after Quinnipiac dominated the season series, sweeping all three meetings and outscoring the Bulldogs 13-3. The Bobcats trailed for all of 18 minutes in the three games combined and Quinnipiac allowed only one goal in the previous eight periods against Yale.
Yale has been playing hockey since 1896, but had reached the national semifinals just once before.
Yale tripped up national powers Minnesota and North Dakota to make the Frozen Four for the first time since 1952
The NCAA title is the first for the school in any sport since the swim team won one in 1953.
