WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross women's hockey team dropped its first Turnpike Trophy matchup with Boston University, 4-1, Friday night at the Hart Center.
Things started well for the Crusaders with Jada Brenon making 15 saves in the first period and Victoria Young snagging her second goal of the year at the end of the frame to tie things at 1-1.
The Terriers got hot in the second and put three tallies on the scoreboard to take a commanding 4-1 lead. The third period was relatively quiet with both sides combining for only nine shots on goal.

4-1 BU (2nd, 19:33, EV): Courtney Correia capped the period for BU with the Terriers' third of the frame.
