Brown upsets top-seeded Quinnipiac 4-0 in ECAC tournament semifinals

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Matt Lorito scored twice and Brown upset top-seeded Quinnipiac 4-0 Friday in the semifinals of the ECAC hockey tournament.

Goalie Anthony Borelli made 29 saves for Brown (16-13-6), which scored twice in each of the first two periods.

Brown, which beat second-seeded Rensselaer in the quarterfinals, will face either Yale or Union in Saturday's championship game, the first for the Bears since 1993.

Lorito has a goal in seven straight games. He opened the scoring 9 minutes into the first period and also tallied on a 5-on-3 power play in the second, beating goalie Eric Hartzell with a shot just under the crossbar.

Quinnipiac (26-7-5) has been ranked No. 1 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll for six straight weeks and is expected to get a top seed in the NCAA tournament despite the loss.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
