No. 3 Boston College 8, Harvard 1
Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Bright-Landry Center | Boston, Mass.


1st, 18:27 | BC GOAL, 1-0 - Off the faceoff in the Eagles' defensive end, Daryl Watts stripped a Harvard player of possession and raced through the neutral zone and into the Crimson end. She deked around the last defender and got a shot off on Harvard goaltender Beth Larcom. Larcom couldn't maintain control, leaving the puck sitting in the crease and Makenna Newkirk streaked in behind the play to poke home the puck in traffic and give BC a 1-0 lead.

1st, 18:24 | BC GOAL, 2-0 - Caitrin Lonergan dispossessed Harvard defenseman Kate Glover of the puck in front of the BC bench and skated into Harvard's end for a 1-on-2 chance. She toe-dragged around the defender in front of her, cutting inside and then created enough space to get a shot off at the edge of the circle, beating Larcom nearside over her glove.

1st, 19:43 | BC GOAL, 3-0 (PPG) - With the faceoff coming after a Harvard penalty, Delaney Belinskas won the draw back to Lonergan at the point, who traded passes along the blue line with Serena Sommerfield. When Lonergan received the puck back, she launched a rocket from the point and Belinskas got a piece of it to sneak it past Larcom and send the Eagles into the intermission up by three.

2nd, 00:29 | BC GOAL, 4-0 - Harvard couldn't connect on a breakout pass at their own blue line and the puck drifted into the neutral zone. Lonergan swooped in and picked it up, skating into the zone. She cut across above the circles, left to right, with a pair of defenders in front of her and once she got space past the second, put a wrist shot on Larcom that beat her on her stick side for her second unassisted tally of the night.

2nd, 11:16 | HARV GOAL, 4-1 (PPG) - With BC killing a penalty, Ali Peper sent a pass from the far point down to Kaitlin Tse on the half boards. Tse's shot from the dot was saved by Burt, who also stopped Haley Mullins' initial shot on the rebound. However, Mulins' second effort - a backwards backhand - found room under Burt to get the Crimson on the board on the man-advantage.

2nd, 13:25 | BC GOAL, 5-1 - Grace Bizal restarted the play behind Burt, feeding Watts near the faceoff dot. She pushed a short pass ahead to Newkirk, who took off into the neutral zone and into the Harvard end. She cut across the zone by the faceoff dots and got space by the hashmarks on the right side, flicking a shot back across her body that beat Larcom on her stick side.

2nd, 14:55 | BC GOAL, 6-1 (4v4) - After coincidental penalties, the Eagles won the faceoff and kept the puck in the Crimson zone. Toni Ann Miano fed Kathleen McNamara at the point and McNamara threw a cross-ice pass to Newkirk on the far half boards. Miano crashed the net, meeting Newkirk's centering pass in the slot where she slapped it down and beat Larcom with the re-direction to give BC a five-goal lead.

2nd, 17:43 | BC GOAL, 7-1 - Caroline Ross' down-ice pass was stopped by a Harvard defender with her body and she dropped the puck, but Erin Connolly was there to pick up the puck and skate around her. She got a hard-angled shot off on Larcom, and Ryan Little was there to bang in the rebound. Her shot bounced up over Larcom and in, giving the Eagles a six-goal lead.

3rd, 18:46 | BC GOAL, 8-1 (PPG) - On the power play, Grace Bizal sent a pass in from the left point that Rachel Moore picked up off the boards, and turned and put a shot on replacement goaltender Becky Dutton. Dutton made the save, but the rebound came out and Kate Annese got her stick on it in a scrum to push it past her and notch the power-play goal and wrap up the scoring.
