Sioux fight to N trophy

PROVIDLNCE (AP) -- Lee Goren
might somedav find himself welcome in
Boston. For now, though, flub hockey
fans will curse his name.
The North Dakota forward and Boston
Bruins draft pick scored the tying goal
and assisted on Jason Ulmer's game-win-
ner Saturday night as the Fighting Sioux
won the NCAA championship with a 4-2
victory over Boston College.
Playing in the home rink of the Bruins'
top minor league affiliate, Goren also
added an empty-netter with 45.2 seconds
left and was selected as the tournament's
Most Outstanding Player.
"I don't know how that's going to work
out," he said, noting that the Sioux also
heat Boston University for the title in
1997. "1 just need to keep going, keep
working. Hopefully, I'll be in this build-
ing,, or another building.''
Karl (ioehring made 21 saves for the
Sioux in front of a partisan Boston
College crowd just an hour south of its
Chestnut IHill campus. The Eagles won in
1949 the tournament's second year-

but haven't won a title in any sport since
then.
"I think that's a great motivating force
for us to win another," coach Jerry York
said. "We're focused, and we want to win
the championship."
Jeff Farkas and Marty Hughes scored
for Boston College, and Scott
Clemmensen stopped 32 shots as' the
Eagles lost in the Frozen Four for the
third consecutive year.

"We don't really think back to when
we last won it. Wejust try to concern our-
selves with this vear," said Mike Mottau,
the Boston College defenseman who
won the Hobey Baker Award on Friday as
the top player in college hockey.
North Dakota trailed 2-1 after two
periods but scored three times in the third
- and Goren had a hand in all of them,
giving him 63 points for the season.
Although he is a senior, Goren had to sit
out the 1997 title run because he played
two games in a Canadian junior league.
"He wants to be a member of the
Boston Bruins," North Dakota coach
Dean Blais said. "He's a tremendous
leader in the locker room. He's the vocal
leader on the team. Guys respect him -

and how could you not respect a guy
that's scored that many goals, and works
that hard to get where he is."
Goren tied it 2:43 into the third when
he took a drop pass from Ryan Bayda
and put it through the legs of a defense-
man and the screened goalie.
Ulmer rebounded Goren's shot with
5:38 left and slapped it into the net to give
the Sioux a 3-2 lead. Goren split the
empty net from the blue line.
North Dakota took the lead just 3:48
into the game wlhen Bryan Lundbohm's
shot rebounded to Commodore on the
right side of the net and he swept it in.
Boston College tied it with 3:13 left in
the first when Blake Bellefeuille one-
timed a pass from Brian Gionta just
under Goehring's right pad. The goalie
fell backward - almost sitting on the
puck --- but Farkas was able to swipe it
the last few inches over the goal line
before he was checked into referee Matt
Shegos.
The goal light never came on, and the
teams kept playing. But as soon as
Shegos could get to his skates he signaled
a goal, which was confirmed by the
replay official.
Hughes gave Boston College a 2-1
lead 6:51 into the second when he came
around the back of the net and stuffed it
in.
