WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross women's hockey team lost to No. 4 Boston College, 5-0, Saturday afternoon at the Hart Center.
On a day where they were outshot 50-16, the Crusaders were not without opportunities. Carlie Magier and Rachel Moore paced the squad with four and three shots respectively. Holy Cross created a handful of quality looks on its power plays, most notably a couple hard strikes by Anotnia Matzka that looked destined for the back of the net.
In goal, Julia Pelletier made 45 saves, with 18 of those coming the second period where the Eagles only recorded one goal. The Crusaders also only took three penalties in the game, which is below their season average of 4.7.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
1-0 BC (1st, 8:37, EV): Cayla Barnes put the Eagles on the board with a long shot that deflected just right to find the back of the net.
2-0 BC (1st, 10:37, EV): BC added a second just two minutes later after a scrum in front of the Crusaders' goal led to a loose puck that Delany Belinskas sent home.
3-0 BC (2nd, 7:21, EV): Kelly Browne made it 3-0 for the Eagles.
4-0 BC (3rd, 1:54, EV): Browne notched her second of the afternoon.
5-0 BC (3rd, 2:51, PP): BC wrapped up the scoring with a power play goal to go up by five.
Holy Cross will continue play against ranked opponents next week when it takes on No. 5 Northeastern in a pair of games on Friday, Nov. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 2.
