Darren Johnston and Robb Rigg scored goals in the final two minutes to propel Hamilton to a 4-2 victory over Amherst. It was revenge for the Continentals, as Amherst had defeated Hamilton 5-4 in last year's ECAC Championshiop game. Rigg opened the scoring for Hamilton at 12:07 of the second and Brian Guastella scored 0:48 seconds later to give Hamilton a 2-0 lead. But the Lord Jeffs scored late in the second and early in the third to tie the game at two. The score remained tied until Johnston scored with only 1:04 remaining in the game. Rigg iced the win off a pass from Jeff Bradley, who finished with two assists, with 0:17 seconds left. Freshman goaltender Brent Davey made 16 saves while recording his fourth straight victory.
