Boston College Beats Ferris State in NCAA Ice Hockey Title Game

April 8 (Bloomberg) -- Junior Steven Whitney scored two goals to lead top-seeded Boston College to a 4-1 victory over No. 14 seed Ferris State University in college ice hockey’s national men’s championship game.

Boston College (33-10-1) earned its fifth National Collegiate Athletic Association title and its 19th consecutive victory.

“It’s incredible,” Boston College goalie Parker Milner told reporters. “It’s everything you dream about.”

Milner had 27 saves for the Eagles at Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa Bay, Florida. Taylor Nelson stopped 33 shots for the Bulldogs (26-12-5).

Whitney scored three minutes into the first period last night at Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa Bay, Florida. Garrett Thompson tied the game at 1-1 two minutes later before Paul Carey gave the Eagles a 2-1 advantage midway through the first period.

Johnny Gaudreau and Whitney each scored a goal in the final three minutes of the third period to seal the victory.

“What a terrific team Boston College is obviously -- very deserving of the championship,” Ferris State coach Bob Daniels told reporters. “The goal by Gaudreau was a great individual effort and a wonderful play on his part, a big-time goal by a big-time player.”

Ice hockey is the only Ferris State team that competes in Division I. The Bulldogs, making their first trip to the championship game, were trying to win the school’s first ever Division I title.

“I don’t want to shortchange our kids,” Daniels said. “I have zero regrets about how we performed.”
