Box Score | Highlights
BOSTON - Sophomores Maddie Elia and Samantha Sutherland each lit the lamp as the No. 6 Boston University women's ice hockey team skated to a 2-2 tie with No. 1 Boston College on Saturday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.
Elia scored with 6:59 remaining in regulation to give BU (21-8-3, 15-5-1 WHEA) a 2-1 advantage, but Dana Trivigno equalized for BC (30-1-2, 20-0-1 WHEA) to secure a share of the spoils.
The Terriers honored six seniors in a ceremony before the game. Sarah Bayersdorfer, Caroline Campbell, Shannon Doyle, Shannon Stoneburgh, Marie-Philip Poulin and student manager Joe Cappuccio helped BU win 96 games over the last four seasons.
Poulin was nearly the hero in overtime when her shot during a 4-on-3 power play found the back of the net, but the referees waved it off due to goaltender interference.
Sophomore Victoria Hanson saved the best of her 34 saves for last when she robbed the nation's leading goal scorer, Alex Carpenter, on a breakaway with 18.9 seconds remaining in the extra period to preserve the tie.
Sutherland had two points as she also assisted on Elia's goal. Junior Lillian Ribeirinha-Braga and sophomore Sarah Steele each assisted on Sutherland's first-period strike while junior Alexis Woloschuk had the primary helper on Elia's marker.
Bayersdorfer almost had the Terriers ahead halfway through the first period when BC goaltender Katie Burt was caught out of her crease trying to poke a puck away from Rebecca Russo. She got to the loose puck but her shot rang off the crossbar. Sutherland lifted BU to a 1-0 lead with 1:22 remaining in the first period.
BU broke through with 1:26 to play in the first period thanks to a terrific tip by Sutherland. Ribeirinha-Braga began the play with a shot that was blocked. The rebound popped to Steele at the right point, and the sophomore fired a shot towards Burt. Sutherland was in the perfect position to redirect it into the net for her sixth goal of the season.
BC tied it early in the second period and had plenty of chances to take a lead in the remainder of the frame, but BU held off three power-play chances and Hanson made 19 saves in the stanza.
Lefort had a golden chance with 13:10 left in the third period after great movement from her, Poulin and junior Kayla Tutino. The puck bounced to Lefort at the right post and she appeared to have an open cage to shoot at as Burt was caught out of position in a pile of players. However, Trivigno blocked the shot at the goal line to keep the game tied.
Elia lifted the crowd at Walter Brown to its feet with her fifth marker of the season when she collected a loose puck following a blocked Woloschuk shot and buried the go-ahead goal. Sutherland began the play with a pass from the left corner to Woloschuk to complete her two-point afternoon.
Trivigno tied the game with 1:15 left in regulation for the Eagles' lone power-play strike before BU enjoyed two extra-player opportunities at the end of the third period and overtime. BC was whistled for too many players with less than 13 seconds left in the third, but the Terriers were unable to convert. Megan Keller then took a hooking minor at the 2:09 mark of OT, which led to Poulin's waved-off goal.
The Terriers will host a best-of-three Hockey East quarterfinal series beginning Friday night at 5 p.m. Their opponent will be determined following the conclusion of Sunday's league games, but the Terriers clinched the second seed in the tournament.
