Fort Frances native Ryan Faragher saw his NCAA Division I hockey season come to an end last night in Pittsburgh.
The sophomore goalie and the rest of the St. Cloud State Huskies were eliminated in the “Frozen Four” semi-finals by the Quinnipiac Bobcats.
The Bobcats, who entered the post-season as the top-ranked team in the country, scored three goals in the opening 12 minutes and never looked back.
Faragher turned aside 24 shots in suffering the loss.
Quinnipiac now faces the Yale Bulldogs in tomorrow’s national championship game, which gets underway at 7 p.m. (EDT).
The Bulldogs advanced with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the UMass-Lowell River Hawks yesterday afternoon.
