WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Day two of the ACCHL Championship Tournament saw plenty of action and a thrilling comeback for the ages. NC State and Virginia will meet Sunday at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex in the championship game.

First game on tap for the semi-final round was No. 4 Wake Forest vs No. 1 NC State, a game many thought would be the championship game. The last time Wake Forest played NC State, Wake Forest almost ruined the Wolfpack’s perfect season. Wake Forest kept up with NC State early on, however NC State quickly ran away with it in the second period. NC State advanced to the final round by a score of 5-2.

No. 3 Virginia took on No. 2 Georgetown in an instant classic. Early on it appeared Georgetown would take the lead and never back. That wasn’t the case however, as Virginia mounted a comeback for the ages. Down 4-1 in the third period, Virginia rallied and managed to pull off the upset. Virginia would do their own version of the “miracle on ice” and advance to the final round with a 5-4 victory against Georgetown.

The No. 1 NC State Wolfpack will take on the No. 3 Virginia Cavaliers in the ACCHL Championship game Sunday February 17, 2019 at 1PM.
