Clarkson (28-4-5) reached its second ECAC Hockey championship game Saturday with a 6-0 rout of Quinnipiac in a semifinal at Cheel Arena.

The Golden Knights outshot Quinnipiac 26-12 and will face Cornell (23-5-4) in the championship game at 1 p.m. Sunday. The Big Red played Clarkson in the program's only other championship game appearance, winning 4-3 in overtime in Ithaca in 2010.

Clarkson controlled the game right from the start and took a 1-0 lead on a goal from captain Carly Mercer at 6 minutes, 8 seconds of the first period.

The Golden Knights added two more goals in the second period. Erin Ambrose scored at 3:36 and Shannon MacAulay scored a power-play goal with just 36 seconds left to give Clarkson a 3-0 lead heading into the third period.

MacAulay's goal

Clarkson added three more goals in the third period to turn the game into a rout. Shelby Nisbet scored at 3:55, followed by a goal from Christine Lambert at 5:25. MacAulay added another power-play goal at 13:24.

The only bad news for Clarkson game with about five minutes left when Ambrose, a Patty Kazmaier finalist, suffered an injured ankle and had to be helped off the ice. Her injury status will probably not be known until Monday.
