BOSTON COLLEGE SKATES TO 1-1 TIE AT PRINCETON
Sophomore forward Haley Skarupa scores power-play goal for Eagles
Princeton, N.J. - Sophomore forward Haley Skarupa scored the lone goal for the Eagles and Megan Millar made 33 saves as No. 5 Boston College tied Princeton 1-1 at Hobey Baker Rink on Saturday afternoon.
After a scoreless period in which BC held a slim lead in shots (10-9), Skarupa scored a power play goal at 11:10 of the second stanza. The goal marked her 13th of the season, which leads Hockey East. The Rockville, Md. native stretched her point streak to six, and has eleven points in that stretch (five goals and six assists). Senior co-captain Meagan Mangene notched her third assist in the last four games on the play.
The Eagles were able to kill off two penalties and kept the Tigers off the board in the second period, but Princeton finally answered back with a power play goal at 13:54 of the third period. Brianne Mahoney took advantage of a roughing call on Kate Leary and scored her first goal of the year, beating BC netminder Megan Miller to tie the score at 1-1.
Providence outshot BC 11-3 in the third period and was able to put enough pressure on the Eagles defense to get the equalizer.
Boston College took all five shots in the overtime period between the two teams, but was not able to find the back of the net to steal back the win.
Miller made 33 stops and movies to 2-0-1. Princeton goaltender Kimberly Newell had 32 saves and is now 4-2-1.
BC was 1-2 on the power play, while Princeton was 1-3 on the man advantage.
The Eagles (9-3-1, 5-1-0) will have a week off before a home-and-home series against Connecticut starting with a home game on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. and concluding at Connecticut on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m.
