CANTON, N.Y. - Makenna Newkirk's third-period goal pulled the Eagles within one goal 3:08 into the third period, but it wasn't enough and the No. 8 St. Lawrence women's hockey team claimed a 2-1 win over second-ranked Boston College on Friday night at Appleton Arena.

St. Lawrence (6-3-2) took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission via Hannah Miller's power-play goal, and then built the advantage to 2-0 off Kennedy Marchment's second-period goal. Newkirk pulled Boston College (8-1-1) within one and broke the Saints' shutout bid, but BC could not find the equalizer with the extra skater as time wound down and the Saints handed the Eagles their first loss of the season.

The two teams return to the ice tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 11, when they face off at Appleton Arena at 2 p.m. The game will be streamed live on

No. 8 St. Lawrence 2, No. 2 Boston College 1
Friday, November 10, 2017
Appleton Arena | Canton, N.Y.

- 1st, 8:48 | SLU GOAL, 0-1 (PPG) - The Saints broke out of their zone on the power play, with Hannah Miller taking the puck from her own end down deep along the left wing and getting off a tight-angle shot from the goal line in over Katie Burt for the 1-0 lead.

- 2nd, 15:48 | SLU GOAL, 0-2 - The Eagles started the play that led to the SLU goal. Daryl Watts stripped a Saints defenseman at the blue line and skated in on a 1-on-2 before picking up Lonergan as a trailer. She laid the puck off and then went wide, where Lonergan fed her for a one-on-one with Shelly, but Watts' shot was high. SLU blue liner Jaimee Cooke picked up the hard rebound off the glass and skated out, threading a pass ahead to Kennedy Marchment at the red line. Marchment curled and took space ahead of her and, after gaining the zone, put her wrist shot high over Burt from the inside hashmarks for the two-goal SLU lead.

- 3rd, 3:08 | BC GOAL, 1-2 - After Makenna Newkirk and Kenzie Kent tried to keep the puck alive in the zone, it popped out to Bridge McCarthy near the red line. She sent a laser pass ahead to Erin Connolly gaining the zone on the far side and after skating into space, sent a centering pass inside to Newkirk. Her wrist shot from the high slot beat Sonjia Shelly high to pull the Eagles back within one.


- Makenna Newkirk scored her fourth goal of the season and the 41st of her career ... she now has 15 points on the season, and extended her point streak to open the season to a career-long 10 games.

- Newkirk now has 103 career points and moved into sole possession of 15th place on the Eagles' career scoring chart, breaking the tie with Emily Pfalzer '15

- Erin Connolly recorded her third assist of the season after returning from a one-game injury absence

- Bridget McCarthy pushed her point streak to three games with her assist today ... all three of her points have come in the last three games

- Today marked just the second time this season Boston College was held to fewer than four goals ... both times have come on the road ... the last time was a 2-2 tie at UConn on Oct. 20

- Friday's game was the Eagles' fourth game against a ranked opponent this season ... BC is now 3-1-0 against ranked teams this year.

- Hannah Miller's first-period power-play goal was the first allowed by the Eagles since Oct. 28 at BU, snapping the BC run of 12 straight kills spanning three games

- BC was also held scoreless on the power play for the first time in seven games ... the last time the Eagles were scoreless on the man advantage was Oct. 17 against Quinnipiac (0-for-5)

- Today marked BC's first regular-season non-conference loss since Oct. 1, 2016 - a 5-2 loss at Minnesota Duluth ... since that loss, BC had gone 10-0-2 in non-conference games in the regular season

- Today's game marked the first time in 2017-18 that BC trailed entering the second period, and the third time this season BC went into the first intermission trailing its opponent ... the Eagles also trailed at Syracuse last weekend (2-1) and against Quinnipiac (1-0) on Oct. 17 after the first period

- This was the second time this season - and the second straight game - the Eagles faced a two-goal deficit at some point in the game

- Without a point today, Caitrin Lonergan and Daryl Watts all saw their nine-game point streaks to open the season come to an end ... at nine-games, it was the longest streak of Lonergan's career
