Bobcats Lose in 3

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

The Quinnipiac Bobcats' season ended on Sunday, 3-1 at Harvard - concluding a hard fought 3 game series. The Bobcats had overcome an 11-0 pasting Friday night in which everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. However, the Bobcats showed why hockey is the great game that it is by getting up off the ice with a wonderful 7-4 effort on Saturday night to tie the series at 1-1.

Going into game 3, I felt it was going to be a typical tight checking affair. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, a shorthanded goal and a powerplay goal by Harvard was enough to clinch the series in their favor. Harvard also added an empty net goal to advance to the ECAC semi-finals at Albany, NY.

It was a tough ending for the Bobcats, however the players fought right to the end (a great feat considering the 11-0 loss in game 1). They showed heart, guts, and were determined to prove themselves - and they did.

In closing, it's sad for the graduating seniors not to go out on top - but they have left the team in good hands. The future, I believe, could only get better for the Bobcats, the university, and the coaching staff.

After an 11-0 blow out they could have easily packed it in for the year. Give them lots of credit for rebounding against Har, Har, HarV,
var, var, varD.

You know all to well having played in the pro's that under those circumstances that after the first game it would have been very easy to say no way are we going to rebound after a loss like that.

That is the beauty of hockey play-offs you always get at least one more chance to even a series. Sometimes you win and sometimes you don't.

Never heard of this University before and will have to follow them next year from the start. Especially if they are playing teams like Harvard which has always brought a good brand of hockey to the college ranks.
