BOSTON - Defender Toni Ann Miano scored four goals, including the game-winner in overtime, to propel the No. 2 Boston College Eagles (19-2-3, 13-1-3 WHEA) to a 5-4 victory over the Northeastern women's hockey team (12-10-2, 8-7-1 WHEA) on Saturday afternoon at Matthews Arena.
The Huskies fell behind 3-1 after one period, but stormed back with three unanswered goals from Tori Sullivan, Shelby Herrington and Kasidy Anderson, to take a 4-3 lead into the final frame. Northeastern could not make the lead stand up, however, as the Eagles forced overtime and eventually won the game 28 seconds into the extra session when Makenna Newkirk fed Miano in front for the deciding tally.
Senior McKenna Brand surpassed the 100-point plateau for her career in the opening period with the first of her three assists on the day, while senior Denisa Krizova added her 100th career helper on Sullivan's power-play goal in the second stanza.
Freshman Aerin Frankel came on in relief of Brittany Bugalski in the first period and held BC at bay for the remainder of the game, stopping 22 of 24 shots in just over 47 minutes of action.
Boston College scored right off the opening faceoff when Kenzie Kent dropped a pass back to Miano for a shot from the right point that eluded Bugalski at 0:09 of the first period.
Miano struck again at 6:48 of the first period, this time on the power-play, when Caitrin Lonergan drove to the net and slid a centering pass across the crease for the defender to fire home.
The Huskies answered back at 12:32 of the opening frame when McKenna Brand's shot from the right circle deflected off the skate of Shelby Herrington in front and trickled past BC netminder Katie Burt (29 saves) to make it 2-1.
Boston College restored its two-goal cushion less than a minute later when Miano completed her hat trick with a shot from the low left slot at 13:23.
The Huskies stormed back to tie the game early in the second period on goals by Tori Sullivan and Herrington once again. Sullivan made it 3-2 at 1:17 of the frame, redirecting a Denisa Krizova point-shot inside the left post on the power-play.
Herrington then evened the score at 3-3 following a beautiful passing play. McKenna Brand threw a pass across the ice to Skylar Fontaine at the left of the BC cage. Fontaine then shifted the puck back across the crease for Herrington to redirect home from point-blank range at 4:54 of the second period.
Kasidy Anderson gave NU its first lead of the game at 16:43 of the middle frame, taking a pass from Taytum Clairmont along the left-wing boards, before sniping a shot over the shoulder of Burt to make it 4-3.
The Eagles pulled even at 1:12 of the third period when Daryl Watts snapped a shot inside the left post, past the blocker of Aerin Frankel, from between the circles.
BC then won the game 28 seconds into overtime when Makenna Newkirk forced a turnover behind the NU net and centered for Miano to fire home from the left dot to make it 5-4 Eagles.
