St. Cloud State Huskies advance to Frozen Four with 4-1 win against Boston College

For the second time in program history, the St. Cloud State Huskies are in the NCAA Frozen Four after beating Boston College 4-1 in the Albany Regional Final on Sunday.

The Huskies scored three second-period goals after falling behind 1-0 in the first period. Defenseman Luke Jaycox scored his first goal of the season to make it 1-1 at the 9:21 mark. With 4:45 remaining in the second period, Will Hammer put St. Cloud State ahead 2-1.

Then the momentum really swung St. Cloud State’s way when Nolan Walker scored moments before colliding with Eagles goalie Spencer Knight. That goal came with 44 seconds left in the second and was initially ruled goalie interference. But after a lengthy review, the goal was good and the Huskies took a 3-1 lead into the third period.

Micah Miller added an empty-netter and Huskies goalie David Hrenak made 26 saves.

St. Cloud State will face Minnesota State in the Frozen Four semifinals on April 8th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Massachusetts faces Minnesota-Duluth in the other national semifinal.
