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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
