CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The No. 2 Boston College women's hockey team outlasted ninth-ranked Providence to remain unbeaten this season, claiming a 7-4 win at Kelley Rink on Friday afternoon.
Daryl Watts notched her fourth four-point game of the season with one goal and three assists. Caitrin Lonergan collected her own three-point day (two goals, one assist), while Grace Bizal notched her first career two-goal game that included a power-play goal and a shorthanded strike. Willow Corson and Toni Ann Miano also registered multi-point outings, while a total of 10 players registered at least one point on the afternoon.
After Providence (6-3-2, 3-1-0 HEA) took an early 1-0 lead, Boston College (7-0-1, 3-0-1 HEA) scored three straight goals to take a 3-1 edge. PC's Kate Friesen pulled PC within one at 3-2 with 1:15 left in the first, and then Christina Putigna evened the scoring at 3-3 at 3:31 of the second.
BC then notched three unanswered goals - from Ryan Little, Bizal and Lonergan - before the Friars got a shorthanded goal from Brooke Boquist at 15:42 of the third to make it a 6-3 game. PC pulled goaltender Madison Myers immediately after and Bizal added a shorthanded empty-net goal at 17:27 to cap the scoring.
Katie Burt recorded 32 saves in the win, her 97th career win to move into a tie for fifth place on the NCAA career wins chart.

HOW IT HAPPENED
1st, 1:56 | PC GOAL, 1-0 - Providence worked the puck behind Katie Burt's net. After a scrum up against the boards, the puck flew loose on the far side to Providence's Nave Van Pelt. Van Pelt dished the puck back behind the net to Emily Landry, who found a wide-open Madison Sansone three feet outside of the crease, who slid a shot past Burt for the early score.
1st, 7:53 | BC GOAL, 1-1 - Toni Ann Miano won the puck in the near corner and carried it away from traffic behind Burt's net, where she then found an open Watts. With a one-timer pass, Watts skipped the puck to a streaking Lonergan who then carried it end to end through the middle of the ice and slipped the shot past the Providence goaltender for the equalizer.
1st, 12:41 | BC GOAL, 2-1 (PPG) - On the power play, Watts won the puck along the near boards in the attacking zone and played Lonergan behind the net. Lonergan kept swinging the puck around and found Miano at the top of the circle. Miano sent a shot on net through traffic that found space under PC goaltender Madison Myers to claim the lead for the Eagles.
1st, 14:14 | BC GOAL, 3-1 - Lonergan and a Providence defender battled in the corner. The Friars' defender centered the puck, but it fell right onto Willow Corson's stick, who turned and fed Watts wide to her lefta. Watts skated through the neutral zone and into the Friars end, and popped a shot in the high slot that snuck under Myers' glove.
1st, 18:45 | PC GOAL 3-2 - Maureen Murphy's initial shot was blocked by Makenna Newkirk and the BC defense tried to clear the puck. However, Kate Friesen stopped the attempt in the high slot and sent it back in, beating Burt to pull the Friars within one at the end of the first period.
2nd, 3:21 | PC GOAL, 3-3 - Avery Fransoo had the puck in her own zone and played a long pass to Brooke Boquist in the front of the neutral zone who carried the puck and dished a pass back to Christina Putigna. Putigna settled the puck and fired a laser past Burt to even the score early in the second period.
2nd, 15:37 | BC GOAL, 4-3 - Makenna Newkirk chased the puck down the far boards and stuck with it, wrapping around behind the Providence net. Newkirk sent a centering pass through traffic towards Little, but the puck rolled to Maegan Beres who tried to get an angle around the goaltender, but saw her shot deflected right to Little on the opposite post, She scored her second goal of the year into a wide-open net to reclaim the lead for the Eagles.
2nd, 18:44 | BC GOAL, 5-3 (PPG) - With the Eagles on the power play, McCarthy fought for the puck up against the near half boards and played it up to Sommerfield at the point. Sommerfield then faked the shot to get the PC defender to commit, and passed over to Grace Bizal at the opposite point. She threw a shot on goal that found space under traffic in front and under Myers for the Eagles' second power-play goal of the game.
3rd, 9:36 | BC GOAL, 6-3 - Miano gained possession of the puck and played it up to WAtts at the red line in front of the BC bench. She gained the blue line, but ran into a PC defender and played Corson. Corson then dished it back to Watts, who sent an angled pass toward goal where it met Lonergan who re-directed it on the doorstep for three-goal lead.
3rd, 15:42 | PC GOAL 6-4 (SHG) - With BC on the power-play, Blaire Parent chipped the puck off the boards to clear it and Boquist picked it up, split a pair of BC players and into the Eagles' defensive end where she pocketed the shorthanded goal.
3rd, 17:27 | BC GOAL, 7-4 (ENG SHG) - Up a player while on the power play, the Friars pulled Myers and had a 6-on-4 advantage. A PC defender tried to send a send a pass up out of her end and into the neutral zone, but Bizal intercepted it along the boards in front of the PC bench and threw it back into the Friars end, scoring the shorthanded empty-net goal to seal the win.
