College Hockey:
Middlebury Takes Record Fourth Straight Division III Title

— Middlebury claimed its fourth consecutive NCAA Division III championship Saturday, beating Wisconsin-Stevens Point 2-1. The four straight titles are an NCAA record for any level of hockey.


Filip Jirousek scored in the first period, and Nickolai Bobrov on the power play in the second to give Middlebury a 2-0 lead, before UWSP’s David Boehm narrowed the gap to one with a late second-period tally.

Stevens Point could muster no more offense, however, as Franc Bourbeau made 21 saves in the Middlebury net. UWSP netminder Bobby Gorman had 43 stops in the losing effort.

In the third-place game, host Plattsburgh State downed Augsburg, 9-5.
