Curry, Wentworth to meet in ECAC Northeast Championship

The top two teams are left standing in the ECAC Northeast.

No. 1 seeded Curry opened the game with three unanswered goals and held off No.4  Becker 5-1  Wednesday night. Check out Melissa Wade’s photo gallery from the game here.

The game acted as senior night for the Colonels,  after their original senior night game had to be postponed due to the team’s hospitalization following nitrous dioxide exposure at Johnson and Wales on Feb. 17. This is the second straight appearance in the title game for Curry, who beat JWU 5-4 last season to advance to the NCAA tournament.

They’ll be meet in the championship by No. 2 seed and last year’s regular season champion Wentworth, who beat third seeded Johnson and Wales 4-3 in overtime.  Jeremiah Ketts scored two goals for the Wildcats, who were undone by Matthew Dozois’ goal at 6:07 in the extra period.


The semifinals are set to begin tonight, with No.6 Westfield State traveling to No. 2 Salem State at 7:00.

Top seeded Massachusetts-Dartmouth will host No. 4 Fitchburg State at 7:30.

The winners will advance to the conference championship, which is set for Saturday.

A little short on time today, but the plan is to have a full preview of both conference championships in the column tomorrow.
