FROM 160 FEET AWAY IT OBVIOUSLY WENT IN:

Big Red on wrong end of wild affair (Ithaca Journal, February 14, 2009)

HANOVER, N.H. — The ghosts of Thompson Arena have done it again.

Joe Gaudet scored his second goal of the game 1 minute, 5 seconds into overtime to lift the No. 19 Dartmouth men's hockey team to a come-from-behind 5-4 victory over No. 6 Cornell in a wild affair Friday night.

So wild, the winning goal may not have even crossed the goal line.

At the end of a Big Green power play, Adam Estoclet wheeled a shot from the left side that was deflected straight up by Gaudet at the top of the crease. The goal judge ruled it a goal, but referee Alex Dell — standing no more than 10 feet from the net — immediately waved it off.

Dartmouth players flooded the ice — first to celebrate, then to protest. The officials then huddled and Dell was over-ruled by the other referee, Bryan Hicks, who was positioned in the neutral zone during the play.
