CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The third-ranked Boston College women's hockey team remained unbeaten in Hockey East play with Sunday's 7-2 win over Maine at Kelley Rink in the team's annual Skating Strides game.
Freshman Daryl Watts moved into the national scoring lead with her third four-point day of the season, while sophomore Caitrin Lonergan recorded three points to pace the Eagles. Four other Eagles - Makenna Newkirk (goal, assist), Ryan Little (goal, assist), Erin Connolly (two assists) and Delaney Belinskas (two assists) - each registered multiple-point days. In total, 11 different Boston College players recorded at least one point.
Boston College (6-0-1, 2-0-1 HEA) built a 4-0 lead after the first period, forcing Maine to replace starting goaltender Loryn Porter just 8:25 into the game after letting in three goals. She made seven saves in that time, before giving way to Carly Jackson, who made 25 saves while allowing four goals in 51:35.
The Eagles pushed the lead to 6-0 before Maine (5-4-0, 1-2-0 HEA) got on the scoreboard through Lydia Murray. Lonergan wrapped up the scoring for BC midway through the third before the Black Bears added another by Catherine Tufts just under three minutes later.
Katie Burt made 12 saves in the win, which was her 97th career victory - one win back of fifth place on the NCAA career list. The Eagles return to action on Friday, Nov. 3, when the team hosts Providence at Kelley Rink. Faceoff is set for 2 p.m., and the game will be streamed live on ESPN3 - available at WatchESPN.com and the ESPN app. After the PC game, the Eagles play three straight non-conference games on the road: at Syracuse on Saturday, Nov. 4, and a two-game series at St. Lawrence, Nov. 10-11.

Kelley Rink at Conte Forum | Chestnut Hill, Mass.
1st, 4:23 | BC GOAL, 1-0 (PPG) - Serena Sommerfield started the play from behind BC goal, finding Makenna Newkirk on the near boards. She connected with Daryl Watts on a cross-ice pass, allowing Watts to gain the Maine zone and skate deep. Newkirk stormed down the right wing, and Watts found her with a tight pass in front, allowing Newkirk to redirect the puck in past Maine goaltender Loryn Porter and a 1-0 lead.
1st, 6:45 | BC GOAL, 2-0 - Willow Corson got into a battle with a pair of Maine players, winning the puck in the near corner. She sent it ahead to Caitrin Lonergan, who cycled around the back of the next to the half boards, meeting Miano to exchange the puck on the fly. Miano then took the puck and in along the edge of the circle and where she launched a shot that beat Porter for a two-goal advantage.
1st, 7:20 | BC GOAL, 3-0 - Maegan Beres pulled the puck off the half boards and sent it up to the opposite point to Caroline Ross. Ross sent the puck back in low, where Erin Connolly got a stick on it and created a loose puck in front, allowing Ryan Little to swoop in from the right side and pot the puck for a 3-0 lead.
1st, 8:25 | NO GOAL, BC - Watts broke up a Maine entry into the BC end and flipped the puck across ice to Caitrin Lonergan coming through the neutral zone. Lonergan maneuvered through the Maine end, around three players and put a shot on Porter while crashing into her unimpeded as the goal crossed the line. After review, the goal was waived off.
1st, 14:25 | BC GOAL, 4-0 - Corson broke up the Maine breakout attempt in their own zone, and fed Caitrin Lonergan coming across. Lonergan got low and with Watts coming in on the backside, flipped the puck over to her and she beat replacement goaltender Carly Jackson.
2nd, 3:52 | BC GOAL, 5-0 - Delaney Belinskas broke up a scrum along the boards and skated it back behind the goal. Newkirk also dropped low and took a feed from Belinskas, creating an angle for her to connect with Watts storming in behind the play for an easy score from the low slot.
2nd, 4:55| BC GOAL, 6-0 - Little came out a scrum in front of the Maine bench and fed Maegan Beres who skated through the zone. She fed Connolly out on the wing and the two came into the Maine end on an odd-man break. Connolly slid the puck across to Beres who pocketed it past Jackson.
2nd, 13:55 | UM GOAL, 6-1 - Cailey Hutchinson dug the puck out off the boards and flipped to the point, where Brittany Kucera's shot was blocked by her own teammate. However, the rebound fell right to Lyida Murray off the near post, who had an open net for the Black Bears' first goal of the game
3rd, 10:36 | BC GOAL, 7-1 - Belinskas got to the puck on the near half boards in traffic and flicked it back behind the goal on the line change. Watts got her stick to it before two Maine players, and sent it in front for Lonergan who's snapshot beat Jackson and pushed BC's lead back to six goals
3rd, 13:03 | UM GOAL, 7-2 - As a BC penalty expired, Maine still had control of the puck in the BC zone. Tereza Vanisova played the puck out to Brooke Stacey along the half boards. After finding space as players moved around, she threaded a pass into the low slot, where it kicked off a BC defender's skates and fell to Catherine Tufts, who pocketed it for Maine's second goal.
