Colgate Draws Yale in NCAA Tournament


2022 NCAA NC Women’s Ice Hockey Bracket


The NCAA announced the field of 11 teams for the 2022 NC Women’s Ice Hockey Tournament and Colgate will be the fourth seed hosting fifth seed Yale in a quarterfinal matchup on Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Class of 1965 Arena.

The Raiders are making their second-straight and third overall appearance in the tournament. Last season, Colgate fell 1-0 in overtime to Minnesota Duluth in the quarterfinals.

The game is a rematch of last Saturday’s ECAC Hockey championship, in which the Raiders won 2-1 in overtime to claim their second-straight conference title. After trailing for the first two periods, Kaitlyn O’Donohoe equalized for Colgate a minute and a half into the third then Kalty Kaltounkova scored the game-winner five minutes into overtime.

Kaltounkova’s goal helped her earn tournament MVP. Last week, the sophomore also garnered ECAC Hockey Second Team All-League honors along with Danielle Serdachny. Additionally, Sydney Bard was named to the ECAC Hockey Third Team All-League.

The Bulldogs swept the regular-season series with a 4-0 win in Hamilton on Nov. 6 and a 3-0 victory in New Haven on Jan. 19.

Colgate enters the tournament 30-7-1 overall and 16-5-1 in conference. The Raiders are on a nine-game win streak which is currently the longest in the country.

Saturday’s winner will advance to the Frozen Four and take on either Ohio State or Quinnipiac/Syracuse in the semifinals.

Information regarding tickets for Saturday’s game will be released on Monday on the Colgate Athletics website.
