UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Graduate student Mary Parker (Milton, Mass.) collected her second career hat trick as part of a five-pont afternoon to lead the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 7-2 win at Penn State on Saturday afternoon at Pegula Ice Arena.


Final Score: Boston University 7, Penn State 2
Records: BU (3-1-1, 2-1-0 WHEA), Penn State (1-4-1, 0-0-0 CHA)
Location: Pegula Ice Arena - University Park, Pa.


- Parker opened the scoring just 53 seconds into the proceedings when she knocked home a rebound off an Alexis Crossley shot.

- Penn State tied the game at the 3:05 mark of the period, but 20 seconds later Parker had her second of the period thanks to assists from juniors Nina Rodgers and Victoria Bach.

- Sophomore Sammy Davis made it 3-1 with 5:00 to play in the opening period when she redirected a Sarah Steele shot on the power play.

- Leading 3-2 in the second period, Parker completed her hat trick with a sensational wrist shot that went over Daniela Paniccia's glove and underneath the crossbar.

- Sophomore Connor Galway notched her first collegiate goal with a blast from the point at the 16:00 mark of the second stanza.

- Senior Maddie Elia, already with two assists on the day, added a power-play goal with 2:01 to play in the middle period. It came on the heels of a superb stop from senior goaltender Victoria Hanson on a shorthanded breakaway bid.

- Sophomore Mary Grace Kelley closed the game on a high note with a great individual effort thar led to her first goal of the season. Parker disrupted a pass in the defensive zone and Kelley did the rest, skating up the right wing and eventually sending the puck into the back of the net.


- In addition to Parker's five-point afternoon (3g, 2a), three other Terriers had multi-point games.

- Elia recorded a goal and two assists while Bach and Crossley both had a pair of helpers.

- Freshman Alexandra Calderone and junior Rebecca Leslie each recorded an assist, as did senior Samantha Sutherland.


- Hanson had a strong game between the pipes, making several tough stops as part of a 21-save performance.

- The Terriers avoided a winless weekend and have not dropped both games of a weekend series away from home since Jan. 24-25, 2014 (at Vermont).

- Sutherland and Davis have now recorded a point in four of the Terriers five games this season.

- Parker's last hat trick was while she was with Harvard - it came against Brown on Feb. 7, 2015.

- BU finished the weekend 9-of-10 on the penalty kill, including a perfect 5-of-5 performance on Saturday.


- BU will remain on the road but return to league play when the Terriers make the short trip to Matthews Arena to face Northeastern on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
