Highlights

Big Ten Semifinals

The Terps defeated the Scarlet Knights for the second time this season, this time winning by three goals. Bubba Fairman and Jared Bernhardt each delivered three goals of their own in the win, while Logan Wisnauskas dished out three assists with two goals of this own. Austin Henningsen went 11-of-18 from the face-off X, and Dan Morris made 12 saves. Rutgers is once again awaiting their fate Sunday night.

The other Big Ten semifinal was...different. For starters, there was a fight:

That was different. It was a very defensive game, so boring for most people. But it was a close one indeed.

Kyle Marr finished with a hat-trick for the Blue Jays, and Joel Tinney scored two goals of his own. But it was Alex Concannon who delivered the game-winner on the team’s 17th shot of the game with 11 seconds to go that was the difference maker. Brock Turnbaugh turned aside 16 shots for a big day for the senior.

Despite Justin Inacio’s performance at the face-off X, Jackson Reid led Ohio State with two tallies, while Erik Evans recorded three caused turnovers. Just like Rutgers, Ohio State will have to wait until Selection Sunday to see if their season is done.

Big East Semifinals

After the past two seasons of losing to Marquette in the Big East Tournament, Denver had enough of that storyline en route to a 10-7 win over the Golden Eagles. Austin French powered the Pios with five goals and Ethan Walker added two of his own.

John Wagner led Marquette scorers with three goals and an assist. One of those goals was a thing of beauty:

At the end of the game, Trevor Baptiste broke Kevin Massa’s face-off wins record with his 1,1118th face-off victory to set a new NCAA mark. He can help grow that number on Saturday.

Georgetown defeated Villanova for the second time this season, and this may have ended Villanova’s chances of reaching the big dance. Craig Berge had four goals on the night for the Hoyas, while Robert Clark scored twice, replacing the injured Daniel Bucaro as well. Nick Marrocco made 12 saves in the win.

The Hoyas could steal a bid from a bubble team if they beat the Pios Saturday afternoon.

CAA Semifinals

Despite Jack Concannon’s unreal 22 save performance, the Minutemen still took home a 10-6 victory over the Pride to move on to the CAA Championship. Jeff Trainor scored twice but also put up three assists. Buddy Carr added a pair of goals and assists, while Jake Lisauskas also scored twice.

Sean Sconone made 11 saves, half of Concannon’s totals.

After losing an 8-4 lead in the fourth quarter, Towson scored the overtime winner thanks to Matt Sovero.

Brendan Sunday recorded a hat-trick, while Grant Maloof scored twice in the win.

For Delaware, Joe Eisele scored three times and midfielder Will Hirschmann put up a pair of goals and assists.

America East Semifinals

In the first semifinal, Vermont and Stony Brook had a very bad first half. But the Catamounts stormed out to a 4-1 fourth quarter to double up on the Seawolves. Ian MacKay scored a game-high five goals with an assists. Everyone else had a point. Nick Washuta made 16 stops in the win.

The second semifinal was...interesting?

Did not expect UMass Lowell to hold a lead over Albany entering the half. But the Great Dane defense stuffed the River Hawk offense, and Albany’s own offense clicked for 10 goals in the second half en route to a 15-10 win at home. With Connor Fields in a reduced role, the offense revolved around Tehoka Nanticoke (3 Gs, 3 As), Sean Eccles (4 Gs, 2 As), and Jakob Patterson (5 Gs, 1A). TD Ierlan only lost one face-off. Wow.

If another slow start affects Saturday’s game over Vermont, the Catamounts have the offense to be great, and Washuta is a tall and talented goalie.

MAAC Semifinals

Canisius got going early with a 5-3 first quarter lead. They maintained a two-goal lead all the way until the fourth quarter when Quinnipiac took a one-goal lead with 7:33 to go in the game. Cooper Stefaniak tied the game from a Connor Kearnan pass with 12 seconds left, before Kearnan fed Ryan McKee for the game-winner in the extra session:

In the other MAAC semifinal, the Titans appeared to be all but out of the game down four with 8:31 left. But all of a sudden, the Detroit Mercy offense came alive, scoring the game’s final seven goals to advance to the MAAC championship. Matthew Vangalen scored the game-tying and game-winning goals during that span as part of his hat-trick and two assist performance.

SoCon Semifinals

The Richmond Spiders doubled the Paladins by eight in their conference semifinal matchup. The Spiders rocked Furman with seven goals in the fourth quarter. Ryan Lanchbury, Ryan Lee, and Teddy Hatfield, who also had four assists on the night to move back into the SoCon title game.

They’ll take on Jacksonville, who did this in overtime:

The Dolphins overcame a 10-4 third quarter deficit to scored the next seven of the final eight regulation goals, before Evan Tyler gave Jacksonville their first trip to the SoCon title game. That was his third of the night, being assisted by McLean Chicquen. The Stony Brook transfer put up five goals and two assists, but Tim Troutner Jr. made a whooping 22 saves in the win. Now, JU will look to upset Richmond and take home the SoCon crown.

NEC Semifinals

Although leading 4-1 after the first quarter, Sacred Heart managed to score five goals in the third to tie their game with the Hawks entering the final frame. Goals from Mike Rastivo and Chris Blewitt, two Hawks that have contributed to the team since arriving on Hawk Hill, helped give St. Joe’s an 11-9 win in the semifinals. Blewitt had three goals in total while Kyle Cain and Hayes McGinley scored two goals each. Mike Adler made 10 saves.

The Hawks will face Robert Morris, who crushed Bryant 12-5 thanks to their fiery offense. Bobby Mo scored three goals in all four quarters, and were catalyzed by Jimmy Perkins’ hat-trick performance. Tyson Gibson and Brad McCulley found the net twice as well, and Alex Heger made 15 saves.
