BOSTON, Mass. - Freshman Nara Elia notched a career-high two goals and redshirt sophomore Abbey Stanley secured a career-best three assists to help lead the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 5-1 win over No. 7 Providence on Friday night at Walter Brown Arena.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- Senior Victoria Bach opened the scoring just 28 seconds into the contest to give BU (8-12-4, 4-9-3 WHEA) a 1-0 lead. Sophomore Breanna Scarpaci broke up a play in the neutral zone and Bach collected the puck at center ice. She sped past a Providence (13-6-5, 9-2-3 WHEA) defender and skated across the top of the crease before calmly backhanding the puck just inside the right post for her 24th goal of the season.
- Junior Reagan Rust made it 2-0 at the 8:49 mark of the opening frame. After freshman Kristina Schuler hit the post, sophomore Natasza Tarnowski won a battle in the corner and dished the puck to Rust at the top of the right circle. Rust fired a shot into the top right corner for her fourth goal of the season.
- Elia extended the lead to 3-0 with a power-play goal at 1:12 of the second stanza. Stanley fed the puck down low to Bach, who quickly sent a pass across the top of the crease to Elia at the left post for the finish.
- It became a 4-0 lead just over two minutes later when Elia redirected Stanley's shot from the top of the zone. Freshman Jesse Compher also earned an assist on Elia's seventh goal of the season. Brooke Boquist got a goal back for the Friars at the 4:26 mark of the middle frame to cut the Terrier lead to 4-1.
- Freshman Corinne Schroeder shut the door in the third period, stopping all 14 shots she faced to complete a strong 29-save performance.
- Compher concluded the scoring with an empty-net goal with 2:18 remaining in regulation.
- BU killed three penalties in the final frame and went 6-for-6 on the penalty kill for the game.
