PITTSBURGH - The No. 7/8 Boston University women's ice hockey team suffered a 3-0 setback at Robert Morris on Saturday afternoon at 84 Lumber Arena.
It is the first defeat for BU (2-1-1) this season and it marks the only occurrence in eight all-time meetings that Robert Morris (4-2-0) has bested the Terriers. BU had not been shut out since Feb. 12, a 3-0 loss to Harvard.
Freshman Victoria Hanson stopped 24 shots in her first collegiate start and was sharp throughout in allowing just two goals. It is the most saves in a Terrier debut since Melissa Haber stopped 26 shots on Oct. 22, 2006.
Senior captain Louise Warren had the Terriers' best chance of the game while killing a 5-on-3 Colonial advantage in the second period. She forced a turnover at her own blue line and was off to the races, but the puck slipped off her stick as she went to shoot.
Robert Morris collected a goal in each period, including a power play goal in the second stanza. The Terriers received just two power play chances in the contest. They were the last unbeaten team in Hockey East before Saturday's loss.
BU will raise three banners before its home opener next Saturday (Oct. 26) against Yale. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 p.m.
