WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross women's hockey team fell to No. 8 Boston University, 4-1, Saturday evening at the Hart Center. Before the game, the team honored Grace Rett and the Holy Cross women's rowing team with a ceremonial puck drop by Chris Rett, Grace's father.
The game played out in a similar fashion to Friday's contest, with the teams playing a tightly contested first period with BU taking the 1-0 lead into the break. The Terriers would again score three goals in the second period and the Crusaders would add one of their own for the identical 4-1 finish.
Kailey Langefels recorded Holy Cross' goal on the power play when she sent in a wrister from just above the circle. Antonia Matzka and Mary Edmonds picked up the assists. It was Langefels' second goal of the season, both of which came on the power play. In goal, Jada Brenon made 35 saves.
1-0 BU (1st, 16:38, EV): Courtney Correia opened the scoring with just over three minutes remaining in the first.
2-0 BU (2nd, 1:21, EV): BU's leading scorer Sammy Davis scored her first goal against the Crusaders this season.
3-0 BU (2nd, 3:51, EV): The Terrier's made it 3-0 just two minutes later.
4-0 BU (2nd, 18:21, PP): Davis added a second, this one on the power play.
4-1 HC (3rd, 1:02, PP): After some solid puck movement from Edmonds and Matzka, Langefels was able to beat BU's Kate Stuart.
Holy Cross takes on New Hampshire in a home-and-home next weekend beginning Friday, Jan. 24 in Durham.
