BOSTON - Junior Victoria Bach scored two goals and senior Maddie Elia added a goal and an assist, but the Boston University women's hockey team was edged by Northeastern, 4-3, on Tuesday night at Walter Brown Arena.


Final Score: Northeastern 4, Boston University 3
Records: BU (3-3-1, 2-3-0 WHEA), Northeastern (6-2-1, 2-0-0 WHEA)
Location: Walter Brown Arena - Boston, Mass.


- Northeastern opened the scoring just 1:07 into the proceedings and then added a shorthanded goal at the 5:52 mark of the opening period to take a 2-0 lead.

- Elia responded with a power-play goal at the 11:48 juncture of the first frame when she took a well-timed feed from senior Samantha Sutherland and one-timed the puck into an open net.

- McKenna Brand on the power play and Hayley Scamurra shorthanded extended the NU lead to 4-1 with 5:05 left in the second stanza.

- Bach quickly responded to Scamurra's strike with a power-play marker at the 16:20 mark of the period when she used her positioning at the right post to capitalize on a loose puck and beat Brittany Bugalski (32 saves).

- It was Bach again at the 7:34 mark of the third period, this time at even strength. Sophomore Savannah Newton's stretch pass found Bach at the Northeastern blue line, and after a nifty bout of stickhandling, she evaded a defender and backhanded the puck over Bugalski's blocker to cut the deficit to 4-3.


- The Huskies scored two separate shorthanded goals while BU was stymied on two separate shorthanded bids in the third period. Bach had a breakaway chance turned aside before junior Rebecca Leslie made a great move around a defender only to have Bugalski stay equal to the task.


- Newton posted her second two-assist game of the season. She also had a pair of helpers in the Terriers' 5-1 win over New Hampshire on Oct. 7.

- Leslie and junior Nina Rodgers also had an assist apiece.

- Senior Victoria Hanson made 36 saves and stopped all 15 shots she saw in the third period.

- BU held Northeastern to a 1-for-11 mark on the power play while converting two of its six power-play opportunities.


- BU will enjoy a 10-day break before a home-and-home series with Boston College that will begin at Chestnut Hill on Friday, Nov. 4.
