    Eau Claire needs the next goal to make it a one goal difference. If Hamline scores next it's over. Lots of penalties in this one!

    A shortie for Eau Claire to make it 3-2! Score clock shows the Blugolds leading in shots 22-16.

    Penalty on Hamline with 4:11 remaining in regulation. Blugolds power play has been awful disorganized all night.

    Empty net. Icing on Hamline. 12 seconds left. Timeout Eau Claire. The refs changed their minds about the icing call and put the faceoff at center ice killing Eau Claire's chances to tie it up. Brutal decision. Hamline wins.

    The Gusties were probably pulling their hair out all night watching this one.

    Looks like Darwitz whined her way to a center ice faceoff and Eau Claire had no shot. Refs are so intimidated by Darwitz itís just a joke.

    Maybe the refs out east wonít be so scared.

    Which means Norwich will most certainly make it to the championship game after watching Elmira and Plattsburgh go toe to toe in the afternoon. I like Norwich's road to the championship game. It appears much smoother than the road for either Elmira or Plattsburgh.

    Good thing Middlebury isn't playing Hamline next weekend. We'd have a battle of the whiniest coaches.

    It's really too bad about those first 3 Hamline goals on their first 10 shots because I think Eau Claire was the better team after that. Hamline was only able to get 10 more shots total after that point which was 1:20 into the second. I chalk that first period up to Eau Claire having played the night before. However them's the breaks. I felt bad for Connelly but she really settled down after giving up those three goals. Credit goes to Hamline for doing all they had to do to advance to the next round. Neither of these two teams is on the same level as Norwich so I don't really think it mattered who won last night but good luck to Hamline anyway. They're going to need a lot of it.

    That's a bad job out of the NCAA.com website for posting them then if they're not official. They should have just left it as TBD.

    Doesn't the Handbook say that the home team should play in the second game? I'm sure Norwich would prefer the early game if they can get it. Is there still a consolation game in the Women's Tournament?

    I don't believe it is in the handbook but you are right about them wanting the early game, The 3 times Plattsburgh hosted they played the early game, gives them more rest than the team they are playing if they win. Also yes, still a consolation game.

    Re: 2018 NCAA DIII Women's Tournament

    Looking forward to welcoming those that have never been to Northfield, Vermont and the central Vermont area.

    For those that are new or may have even been here before, wanted to give a little information to help plan their trip.

    Hotels:
    I would recommend Capitol Plaza in Montpelier. About 15 minutes from campus. it's right in downtown Montpelier, state capital and walking distance to many restaurants as well as shops etc. There is also a fantastic steakhouse right adjacent to the hotel. The Comfort Inn will be totally booked I believe with all the teams staying there.

    Other places I would recommend would be the Quality Inn in Barre as well as the Best Western and Fairfield?Marriott Inn Suites in Waterbury. Quality Inn is about 20 minutes from the rink. The two places in Waterbury might be the best bang for your buck, just a little bit further drive. Both are about 30 minutes from campus, but they are also 25-30 minutes from downtown Burlington which is a fantastic area right on Lake Champlain if you've never been. Highly recommend Church Street if you have time to kill in Burlington.

    The two places in Waterbury are also right near the "tourist trail" of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, Cold Hollow Cider Mill and Cabot Cheese Factory. Excellent area with good restaurants and the famous Alchemist Brewery with Headytopper is right in town.

    Restaurants: I would recommend trying to go to Cornerstone Burger Company right in downtown Northfield. it's a great burger joint with beers and they have been fantastic supporters of Norwich and the hockey programs. Bobby runs the place and does a great job. I fully expect this place to be hopping all weekend with hockey fans.

    There is only one other true bar in Northfield and it's just on the outskirts of town heading toward Montpelier. It's called the Rustic and it's a family-owned bar/restaurant. Mark is the owner, also a great guy and great supporter of Norwich. Bigger place and a little bigger menu than what Cornerstone has. Highly recommend the Ramsey if you go there! grilled cheese with a burger in the middle.

    Northfield also has a Subway and Depot Pizza. There is a craft brewery that has done well right next to Cornerstone Burger company called Good Measure Brewing. They also just opened up a coffee shop right next to Cstone called Carrier Roasting that has been getting rave reviews from the coffee drinkers (not me.).

    Two decent options for breakfast in town. Common Cafe is right downtown and is your typical diner style breakfast joint. My favorite is Falls general store near the Rustic. They have a great breakfast menu and great coffee. The FGS breakfast plate is solid choice any day of the week.

    Montpelier and Barre are the two "bigger" cities in the area with a few more dining options, "nightlife" and hotels.

    There are a couple Bed and Breakfasts in Northfield that may have limited availability if you just have a smaller group and want to stay right in town.

    Hope this information helps. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any more questions. My contact information is pretty easy to find on www.norwichathletics.com!

    Classes are not in session so parking and tickets will not be an issue. We have 1500 seats and 2200 with standing room. We're expecting a good turnout but certainly not getting a sellout. A Plattsburgh/Norwich final though would certainly be a pretty good ticket and we might approach being able to sell all the seats.

    I have to say I would much rather have seen River Falls or Gustavus or Lake Forest (or several other teams) in the spot Morrisville had. That game was a joke for Norwich (8-2 score, 39 shots to just 14, and clearly took their foot off the gas in the 3rd period) and it shows what an unfortunate waste that conference's AQ is and supports what many people here said about what a joke it was to see Endicott being ranked in the top 10 this season.

    That's very close quarters if all three visiting teams are staying there. Hope there are no problems and everyone keeps their Snaps to themselves this time.

    Thanks for the tip about staying in Montpelier and the restaurant tips, Prez.
