CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Caitrin Lonergan scored two goals as the No. 6 Boston College women's hockey team topped Providence, 3-1, on Senior Day at Kelley Rink on Sunday.
After a scoreless first period, the Eagles fell behind midway through the second on a Providence (16-15-3, 11-10-3 HEA) shorthanded goal. However, Kenzie Kent scored less than 90 seconds later to even the score before Lonergan scored her first just under two minutes after that to give BC (23-5-5, 17-4-3 HEA) its first lead. She added her second just 80 seconds later to round out the day's scoring.
Katie Burt made 33 saves in goal for the Eagles, while Providence's Madison Myers stopped 24 shots. This was just the second game this season BC was out-shot by an opponent as the Friars pumped 34 total shots on goal - including 17 in the third period - to the Eagles' 27.
With an assist on Lonergan's first goal, Kristyn Capizzano recorded her 100th career point to become the 16th player in program history to reach the century mark.

HOW IT HAPPENED
2nd, 10:55 | 0-1, PC GOAL (SHG) - With the Eagles on the power play, Cassidy Carels created a turnover at center ice and pushed the puck wide to Brooke Boquist. Boquist skated into the zone and sent a wrist shot in from the left faceoff dot that beat BC goaltender Katie Burt and staked the Friars to the 1-0 lead on the team's seventh shorthanded goal of the year.
2nd, 12:19 | 1-1, BC GOAL - Less than two minutes after Providence's goal, Kenzie Kent capitalized on the a BC 3-on-1. Bridget McCarthy carried the puck in the zone and dumped it off to Andie Anastos. Providence goaltender Madison Myers made the save on Anastos' effort, but the rebound popped out wide where Kent was able to turn and shoot into an open net to level the game.
2nd, 14:13 | 2-1, BC GOAL - The Eagles' second line gave BC its first lead of the weekend as Kristyn Capizzano got the puck deep in the corner and played Delaney Belinskas ahead as she skated back and around the goal. Belinskas came out the other side and found Caitrin Lonergan streaking down the slot for the one-timer past Myers.
2nd, 16:43 | 3-1, BC GOAL - Lonergan netted her second just under two minutes later to send the Eagles into the second intermission with a two-goal lead. Megan Keller skated down from the point and connected with Belinskas coming in off the top of the other circle. Belinskas fired on Myers, who made the save, but the rebound came loose in traffic and Lonergan was on the doorstep to poke it in.
