BC tied the regional record for goals in a game and the teams set a regional record for combined goals. Joe Whitney and Jimmy Hayes each scored twice for BC (27-10-3), which will face Miami of Ohio on April 8 at 8:30, after Wisconsin and RIT meet in the other semifinal. Miami beat Michigan 3-2 in two overtimes in the Midwest Regional final Sunday night. Mark Arcobello scored three goals and Brian O'Neill had two for Yale (21-10-3), which trailed by five goals before getting as close as two.
