CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Daryl Watts factored on all four goals as the No. 3 Boston College women's hockey team defeated Quinnipiac, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Kelley Rink.
The Toronto, Ontario, product scored one goal and assisted on the other three as Boston College (3-0-0) remained perfect on the season. Sophomore Caitrin Lonergan posted three points (one goal, two assists), while freshman Willow Corson (one goal, one assist) also had multiple-point nights.
Quinnipiac (4-3-0) scored a power-play goal midway through the first and took the 1-0 lead into the first intermission, but junior Makenna Newkirk leveled the score at 5:30 of the second. Lonergan put the Eagles ahead for good at 10:51 before Corson netted her first collegiate goal at 1:42 of the third. Watts - who had primary assists on the first three goals - broke through at 4:23 of the final stanza to wrap up the BC scoring. Quinnipiac added another power-play goal at 14:16 to draw within two, but got no closer.
Katie Burt stopped 24 Bobcat shots on the night to win her third of the season and 94th career game for the Eagles.
The Eagles return to the ice on Friday, Oct. 19, when the team travels to face Connecticut at 6 p.m. at the Huskies' Freitas Ice Forum in Storrs, Conn.
No. 3 Boston College 4, Quinnipiac 2
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Kelley Rink at Conte Forum | Chestnut Hill, Mass.
1st, 10:33 | 0-1, QU GOAL (PPG) - With the Bobcats on their third power play of the first period, Kenzie Lancaster played a pass into the slot where Brooke Bonsteel redirected it on the far side in behind Katie Burt for the early 1-0 lead
2nd, 5:30 | 1-1, BC GOAL - Daryl Watts started the play by picking up the puck in the neutral zone off Caitrin Lonergan's stick. She took the QU zone and saw her shot from the high slot saved. Makenna Newkirk picked up the rebound on the far side of the net and played it back to Watts. Newkirk circled around the near side of the net as Watts skated below the far face-off circle and Newkirk was wide open to take Watts' cross-crease pass and put it under Bobcats goaltender Abby Ives to even the score.
2nd, 10:51 | 2-1, BC GOAL - With the Eagles putting heavy pressure on the Bobcats on the forecheck, Willow Corson stripped a Bobcat defender behind the QU goal and played Watts skating in off the faceoff dot. With Caitrin Lonergan alone on the other side of the net, Watts threaded a pass through the top of the crease for Lonergan, who converted the one-timer for the one-goal lead.
3rd, 1:42 | 3-1, BC GOAL - Lonergan collected the puck off the half boards in the Eagles' defensive end, and sent a pass up off the boards to Watts in the neutral zone. She skated into the zone unimpeded, cut across the goal and lifted a backhand on Ives, who made the save. However, the puck popped loose and Watts got enough stick on it to throw it back into the crease where Corson charged in for her first collegiate goal.
3rd, 4:23 | 4-1, BC GOAL - Caroline Ross broke up the Bobcats' rush and played the puck off the boards for Watts, who curled inside and started the Eagles back up the other way. Her drop pass to Lonergan cleared space for the sophomore to lead the rush into the QU end. Once she reached the corner, she curled around and found the passing lane to Watts behind the play, who collected her pass and sniped a shot past Ivy from the high slot to wrap up the BC scoring.
3rd, 14:16 | 4-2, QU GOAL (PPG) - On the power play, the Bobcats broke it out and found Anna Kilponen sent a shot in from the point that Randoi Marcon blocked in front, and the rebound went right to Kenzie Lancaster just off the near hash mark. She wristed a high shot past Burt to pull the Bobcats within two.
