Chestnut Hill, Mass. - No. 1 Boston College (18-0-1, 11-0-0 WHEA) battled past No. 4 Boston University (12-4-2, 8-3-0 WHEA) to defeat the Terriers, 4-3, Wednesday night at Kelley Rink. The Eagles earned a come-from-behind victory over BU to achieve the longest undefeated streak in program history (19 straight games).
The Eagles dominated play in the first period, holding BU to just three shots on goal. Despite control of the puck in the Terriers' zone, Boston University netted back to back goals in the seventh minute of play.
Senior forward Marie-Philip Poulin rushed the Eagle net to strike first for the Terriers. Just 13 seconds later, forward Kayla Tutino added another BU goal to put the Eagles in a 2-0 hole early in the first period.
Freshman forward Tori Sullivan was quick to respond for Boston College. Sullivan lifted her ninth goal of the season past BU goaltender Victoria Hanson to narrow the Terriers' lead to 2-1.
Sullivan's linemate Kate Leary notched the equalizer off a pass from senior defenseman Emily Pfalzer with three minutes to go in the first.
Just before the first period expired, BU's Sarah Lefort found the back of the net to give the Terriers a 3-2 lead heading into the first intermission.
The Eagles maintained pressure in the second period, allowing just five shots and peppering goalie Victoria Hanson with 16 shots.
Junior forward Haley Skarupa, with her 18th goal of the season, tied up the game on a pass from Pfalzer seven minutes into the second period. Skarupa's goal would be the only score of the middle frame, and the Eagles and Terriers headed into the second intermission knotted up at three goals apiece.
After zero penalties had been called in the first two periods, Boston College and Boston University combined for seven penalties in the third period.
BU sent two players to the box for too many men on the ice and high sticking, while Dana Trivigno drew a body checking penalty to yield a 4-on-3 situation for the Eagles seven minutes into the final period.
Sullivan capitalized on the man advantage and put away the go-ahead goal, her second goal of the game, for the eventual game-winner.
