Crimson shut out Cornell twice; Will play in ECAC semifinal

1 min read

In their two ECAC quarterfinal matchups against Cornell at Bright Hockey Center, the Crimson women’s hockey team shut down the Cornell Big Red 3-0 on Friday (Feb. 27) and 4-0 on Saturday (Feb. 28) to advance to the semifinal round where Harvard will play Rensselaer at home Saturday (March 7) at 1 p.m.

Although quiet on the scoring end, the Crimson’s leading goal scorer and co-captain Sarah Vaillancourt ’09 still tallied five helpers between the two matches after being named both Ivy Player of the Year on Feb. 26 (for the second consecutive season) and being named one of 10 finalists for the 2009 Patty Kazmaier award, given to the nation’s top player. If Vaillancourt wins the award this season, it, too, will be her second time winning the award.
