Eagles Return to Hockey East Action Against UNH
Oct. 16, 2013
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The No. 2 women’s hockey team (3-0-0, 1-0-0 WHEA) will host the UNH Wildcats (2-2-1 0-0-1 WHEA) on Wednesday night at Kelley Rink. This marks the first meeting between the teams since a 4-1 Eagles victory at UNH on Dec. 5, 2012.
The Eagles had goals by graduated Caitlin Walsh and Ashley Motherwell, as well as from current players Haley Skarupa and Meagan Mangene in the game. Corinne Boyles stopped 20 of the 21 shots she faced to record the win.
BC took both games in this past weekend’s series against St. Lawrence, picking up their second and third wins in as many games. Freshman Andie Anastos was named Pro Ambitions Player of the Week by Hockey East for her performance over the weekend. The Farmington Hills, Mich. native scored a short-handed goal in the game on Friday and the game-winning goal in the Saturday matchup.
The Wildcats are coming off a 2-2 tie against Maine in which the team had 52 shots on goal. Cassandra Vilgrain and Heather Kashman scored less than three minutes apart to give UNH a 2-1 lead in the second period, but a late goal by Maine knotted the score for good.
Boston College will stay at home for games against Yale (Oct. 19 at 2 p.m.) and Dartmouth (Oct. 20 at 2 p.m.) this weekend, before heading to Syracuse for its first away game of the season.
