Cornell tripped up by Princeton in Lake Placid, 4-1

A strong start turned into a bitter ending for the men’s hockey team on Friday, when Princeton scored four unanswered goals to power a 4-1 victory over the Big Red in the semifinals of the ECAC Hockey Championships at 1980 Herb Brooks Arena.

Senior forward Trevor Yates scored the lone goal for top-seeded Cornell (25-5-2), which had advanced to the league’s showcase weekend for the 10th time in the last 14 years. But seventh-seeded Princeton (18-12-4) got off its heels for the final 40 minutes to oust the heavy favorites.

Cornell remains aligned for an at-large bid in the upcoming NCAA tournament. The selection show will air at noon Sunday on ESPNU, with regionals taking place next weekend at four neutral sites in Allentown, Pa.; Bridgeport, Conn.; Sioux Falls, S.D. and Worcester, Mass.
