Nov. 6, 2013
BC looks to continue its two-game winning streak after taking both games of a home-and-home series against Providence over the weekend. The Eagles won two close games, starting with an 8-6 win at Providence, and finishing with a 2-1 overtime victory at home. Kate Leary and Haley Skarupa each scored five points (2-3-5) on the weekend, while goaltenders Corinne Boyles and Megan Miller each picked up a win.
The Eagles are 8-0-2 against Vermont in the teams’ last ten match ups. The Catamounts split two Hockey East game over the weekend, defeating Connecticut 4-0 before falling to Boston University 6-0. Goaltender Roxanne Douville stopped all 28 shots on net and junior forward Brittany Zuback notched a hat trick in the victory over UConn. The Catamounts were unable to get on the board against the Terries, who picked up their sixth win of the year.
After losing to Northeastern in both the Hockey East Tournament semifinal and the Beanpot final last season, Boston College will look to bounce back against the Huskies when they host them on Sunday. Northeastern is coming off a 1-1 tie with Maine in which Chloe Desjardins made 25 saves for the Huskies and Katie MacSorley scored a short-handed goal to even the score for NU in the second period.
After the weekend series, the Eagles will travel to face Quinnipiac on Friday, Nov. 15 at 3:00 p.m. and Princeton on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 3:00 p.m.
