Jacobson and the Knights capture second NCAA crown
2017-03-21
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.
