Oct. 31, 2012
Chestnut Hill, Mass. – The No. 8 women’s hockey team (2-3-0, 1-2-0 WHEA) travels down the street to visit the No. 3 Boston University Terriers (7-1-0, 3-0-0 WHEA) on Wednesday night at Walter Brown Arena. This will mark the first meeting between the teams since a 4-2 Terriers win at Kelley Rink on October 5.
Sarah Lefort had two goals for the Terriers including the game winner at 6:17 of the third period. Boston College was led by Emily Field who registered a goal and Ashley Motherwell who recorded her first of three power play goals this season.
The Eagles dropped two positions in the latest USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls after splitting a two game set with Minnesota-Duluth last week.
Alex Carpenter, Emily Field, and Haley Skarupa each had two points in Friday’s 3-2 win over the Bulldogs at Kelley Rink. Senior goaltender Corinne Boyles improved to 2-1-0 on the season with a 21 save effort. Skarupa was named Pro-Ambitions Co-Rookie of the Week alongside Sarah Lefort for her goal and assist effort against Minnesota-Duluth.
The Terriers are coming off a 3-0 blanking of Robert Morris last Saturday. Sarah Lefort notched her seventh and eighth goals on the season while goaltender Kerrin Sperry recorded the eighth shutout of her career.
Boston College leads the all-time series 23-14-3 but Boston University has won the last three meetings between the teams by a combined score of 15-4.
