D-III picks: March 6 (Tim Costello)

First Round – Wednesday, March 6 (Campus sites)
Wentworth at Babson   
Shaun Jameson has been great for the Leopards all season but Zeke Testa is on one of those magical runs as a goaltender and that’s enough for the Beavers at home. Babson 4-2
Massachusetts-Dartmouth at Bowdoin  
Bowdoin has too much speed and balance for the Corsairs who get a great effort from Ryan Williams in goal but just fall short. Bowdoin 3-2
St. John’s at Wisconsin Eau-Claire
Just because a quarterfinal match-up with St. Norbert again will be a special game. Wis.-Eau Claire 4-1
Quarterfinal Round – Saturday, March 9 (Campus sites)
Babson at Norwich
A fourth meeting against a team that deprived them of their conference title on home ice is a lot of motivation for a team that wants to reclaim its national ranking in the tournament that means the most. Great seniors on both sides makes this a terrific hockey game. Norwich 2-1
Oswego at Adrian
The Bulldogs are for real, but so are the Lakers, who are a familiar fixture in the Frozen Four. The road trip will be a worthwhile one for the New Yorkers. Oswego 4-3
Wisconsin Eau-Claire at St. Norbert
In overtime just to add some spice, the defending champs are out and the semifinals are wide open. Wis.-Eau Claire 3-2
Bowdoin at Utica
Fans of great offense get their money’s worth in this one. Despite the quality of goaltending, the offenses are potent and the outcome is decided late in regulation. Bowdoin 5-4
