ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Junior Natasza Tarnowski, redshirt junior Sammy Davis and sophomore Jesse Compher each lit the lamp to help lift the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 3-1 victory at RIT on Friday afternoon at the Gene Polisseni Center.
Compher added an assist to extend her point streak to 12 games while Davis pushed her point streak to eight games. Freshman Kaleigh Donnelly recorded her first collegiate point with an assist on Davis' marker, while junior Abby Cook and sophomore Nara Elia both assisted on Compher's goal.
BU improved to 7-4-4 and 2-0-0 out of conference in its first-ever visit to RIT (5-9-4).
HOW IT HAPPENED
- Tarnowski opened the scoring at 15:29 of the first period. She helped force a turnover in the defensive zone and picked up the loose puck before creating a 3-on-1 chance heading the other way. Tarnowski, skating up the right wing, got below the right faceoff dot before uncorking a wrist shot into the top right corner.
- Davis made it 2-0 with a power-play goal early in the second stanza. Compher collected a pass from Donnelly and quickly dished the puck across the crease to Davis at the right post. The redshirt junior then fired a shot past Terra Lanteigne (26 saves) for her ninth goal of the season.
- Compher extended the lead to 3-0 with another power-play marker. Cook skated into the RIT zone and slid the puck to Elia. Elia immediately gave the puck back to Cook, who then feathered a pass to Compher for the goal.
- The Tigers got a power-play goal of their own with 5:20 to play in the stanza to cut the Terrier lead to 3-1 after 40 minutes.
- Sophomore Corinne Schroeder shined in the final 20 minutes, making 14 of her 27 saves to preserve the two-goal advantage.
- Compher extended her point streak to 12 games (9g, 15a) with her seventh multi-point effort in the last eight games.
- She has lit the lamp in seven of her last eight appearances and owns a 12-game assist streak, the longest such streak in the nation.
- With Donnelly's assist, every rookie skater that has played at least three games for BU has at least one point this season.
- Schroeder has held her opponent to two goals or fewer in each of her last three starts.
- BU went 2-for-6 on the power play and has scored at least two power-play goals in each of its last three tilts.
