Chestnut Hill, Mass. - No. 1 Boston College women's hockey (24-0-1, 15-0-0 WHEA) took down Princeton (10-10-1, 8-6-0 ECAC), 4-2, Monday afternoon at Kelley Rink for their 22nd consecutive win. Alex Carpenter and Kate Leary each tallied a pair of goals to lift the Eagles to victory.

Senior forward Kate Leary was the first to strike six minutes into the first period. Freshman forward Tori Sullivan fed it to Leary at the post, who lifted the puck past a diving Kimberly Newell to put the Eagles on the board.

The Tigers didn't respond until the opening minute of period two, when Kelsey Koelzer notched a power play goal on a shot fired from the point. Koelzer's seventh goal of the season knotted the game up at ones.

Defenseman Megan Keller set up the Eagles' go ahead goal in the seventh minute of the middle frame. Keller slid the puck to Haley Skarupa who shot from the slot. Carpenter followed up on Skarupa's rebound to give BC a 2-1 lead.

Carpenter tacked on another tally off a rebound on a shot by Skarupa to give the Eagles a two-goal cushion with three minutes left in the second.

Leary, after a wraparound by Emily Pfalzer and a tip from Dana Trivigno, sent Boston College to the second intermission leading, 4-1.

A four-penalty third period presented the Eagles with some adversity from the Princeton power play. BC went up against two 5-on-3 situations, and goaltender Katie Burt made nine of her 13 saves in the final period.

The Tigers punched one in on a power play goal from Morgan Sly to reduce BC's lead to 4-2, but Boston College held strong to finish out the game with a win.
