BOSTON - Junior Victoria Bach, graduate student Mary Parker and senior Samantha Sutherland each tallied three points as the Boston University women's ice hockey team defeated Northeastern, 7-2, on Friday night at Walter Brown Arena.
Final Score: Boston University 7, Northeastern 2
Records: BU (16-10-6, 11-8-4 WHEA), Northeastern (19-11-3, 14-8-2 WHEA)
Location: Walter Brown Arena - Boston, Mass.
- With Northeastern ahead, 1-0, the Terriers scored twice in 54 seconds to take the lead for good with 5:23 left in the opening period.
- The first goal came on BU's first power-play chance of the game. Sutherland and freshman Abby Cook cycled the puck to junior Nina Rodgers at the top of the left circle, and the junior blasted a shot past Brittany Bugalski (9 saves) for her 11th goal of the season.
- Senior Maddie Elia then scored to make it 2-1. After Northeastern thwarted an initial rush into the zone, junior Rebecca Leslie stayed with the play and regained the puck before quickly putting a shot on net from just outside the right post. Bugalski made the save, but Elia knocked home the rebound for her 11th goal of the year.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- Parker made it 3-1 just 5:39 into the second period. Bach intercepted a Northeastern pass in the neutral zone and eventually got the puck to Parker in the right circle. The graduate student went top shelf for her first goal of the contest.
- Sutherland extended the lead to 4-1 less than two minutes later. She began the play by dropping the puck back to freshman Natasza Tarnowski. Tarnowski's shot was stopped, but the rebound popped out to Sutherland at the left post, and the senior got it past Bugalski for her 12th goal of the campaign.
- Sarah Foss (17 saves) took over for Bugalski after that goal and allowed another Terrier power-play goal at the 9:12 mark. After a Leslie bid went wide, Parker collected the puck behind the net and passed it to Bach in the right circle. Bach had all day to pick her spot and she did for her 21st goal of the season.
- Heather Mottau got a goal back for Northeastern at the 10:41 mark of the third, but Parker answered right back with her team-leading 22nd goal of the season off a pass from Bach.
- A nifty move from senior co-captain Natalie Flynn capped the scoring with 6:02 remaining in regulation. She caught a pass from Sutherland and quickly put it on her backhand to get around Foss and deposit the puck into the open net for her third goal of the season. Sophomore Sammy Davis began the play in her own zone to pick up her 16th assist of the season.
- BU did not clinch home ice due to Vermont's victory on Friday, but the Terriers ensured that they will not finish lower than fifth.
- Senior Victoria Hanson made 26 saves for the Terriers.
- Six different Terriers lit the lamp in a single game for the first time since a 7-2 win over Vermont on Feb. 28, 2015.
- Elia extended her point streak to six games (4g, 5a) on Friday night. She has yet to be held pointless since returning to the lineup on Jan. 28 after a five-game absence.
- Rodgers moved her point streak to five games (3g, 3a) with her marker.
- With her three points, Sutherland set a new single-season best with 27 points. Her 12 goals is also a career high.
- Bach now leads the league with 45 points and 22 assists while Parker is one behind Northeastern's McKenna Brand for the NCAA lead in goals. Brand has 23 while Parker enters Sunday with 22 markers.
- BU went 2-for-6 on the power play while stopping all seven of Northeastern's power-play opportunities.
- BU will honor its seven seniors on Sunday before the Terriers' regular-season finale against Maine.
- Sunday is also the 10th annual ChiliFest. Fans will be able to enjoy chili from five different dining halls on campus and vote for the winner.
- Game time is set for 3 p.m.
