BOSTON - Freshmen Nara Elia and Jesse Compher each scored for the Boston University women's ice hockey team, but the Terriers dropped a 3-2 decision to Maine on Sunday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- Maine (14-6-3, 8-3-2 WHEA) opened the scoring at 8:01 of the first frame when Tereza Vanisova snuck a shot past senior Erin O'Neil (24 saves).
- BU (7-12-4, 3-9-3 WHEA) answered at the 14:20 mark of the opening frame thanks to a nifty 2-on-1. Sophomore Deziray De Sousa began the sequence by winning a battle at her own blue line to free the puck for Compher. She skated up the left side and into the offensive zone before sliding a pass to Elia. The freshman stopped at the top of the crease and backhanded the puck past Carly Jackson (24 saves) for her fifth goal of the year.
- Vanisova deposited her second goal of the game just over a minute after Elia's marker to give Maine a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes.
- The Black Bears made it 3-1 at 16:07 of the middle frame.
- The Terriers made it 3-2 with 5:21 remaining in regulaton. Redshirt sophomore Abbey Stanley put on a skating exhibition in the offensive zone before driving to the net and sending the puck towards Jackson. Stanley's shot deflected off a Maine stick and then off of Compher at the top of the crease before finding the back of the net. Compher's goal was the third of the season.
- BU pulled O'Neil in favor of an extra attacker in the final minute, but despite good pressure in the Maine zone, the Terriers were unable to equalize.
TWO POINTS FOR COMPHER
- Thanks to her goal and assist, Compher put together her fifth multi-point game of the season.
- She has notched three goals and added 12 assists for 15 points as a freshman.
DE SOUSA DELIVERS AGAIN
- After lighting the lamp on Saturday, De Sousa added two assists on Sunday.
- It was the first multi-point game of her brief collegiate career.
- De Sousa now has five points (1g, 4a) this season.
- In 55 career games at BU, De Sousa has recorded 16 points (3g, 13a).
STRONG WEEKEND FOR STANLEY
- Stanley notched an assist in each game this weekend.
- On the season, Stanley has recorded nine assists along with three goals for 12 points.
NEXT UP: PROVIDENCE
- The Terriers will face Providence in a home-and-home series next weekend.
