Jesse Root scores go-ahead goal, Yale beats North Dakota 4-1 to reach NCAA Frozen Four

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Jesse Root scored the go-ahead goal with 4:56 left and Yale beat North Dakota 4-1 on Saturday in the NCAA West Regional final to reach the Frozen Four for the first time.

Fourth-seeded Yale (20-12-3) scored four times in the final 7:35.

Josh Balch started the spree, and Root gave the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead on a power play, a day after scoring at 9 seconds of overtime in Yale's 3-2 victory over top-seeded Minnesota.

Stu Wilson and Kenny Agostino added goals for Yale.

Corban Knight scored in the first period for North Dakota (22-13-7).

The national semifinals are April 11 in Pittsburgh.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
