Jacobson and the Knights capture second NCAA crown
by Randy Pascal

For the second time in her four year career with the Clarkson Golden Knights, former Sudbury Lady Wolves defenceman Corie Jacobson can lay claim to an NCAA Division I crown. The second time around, however, was certainly more sweet.

The Warren native and her mates blanked the top-ranked Wisconsin Badgers 3-0 Sunday in St Louis, capping off yet another outstanding season. But whereas Jacobson missed essentially the entire second half of her freshman year dealing with a concussion and sitting on the sidelines as her team reached the pinnacle of women’s hockey in the States, she was clearly a key contributor in her final year at Clarkson.

Appearing in all 41 games in 2016-2017, Jacobson finished with seven goals and seven assists, as the Golden Knights overcame an 2-3-1 start to the season, losing only once since mid-October.

Clarkson would go on to finish the season at 32-4-5, including a conference leading 19-1-2 record, five points ahead of the St Lawrence Saints. The NCAA champs would then eliminate both the Princeton Tigers (4-0) and Cornell Big Red (1-0) en route to a berth in the national quarter-finals, knocking off Cornell for a second time (3-1) and booking their ticket to the Frozen Four.

A Friday night classic would see Clarkson squeeze past the Minnesota Golden Gophers 4-3, as Rhyen McGill netted the game-winning goal with less than two minutes to play, while Wisconsin trimmed Boston College 1-0 in the remaining semi-final.

There was actually a second local connection in play in the gold medal game, as Wisconsin freshman sensation Abby Roque suited up for the Badgers. She is the daughter of Lo-Ellen Park Secondary graduate and Lake Superior State sniper Jim Roque.
