Chestnut Hill, Mass. - No. 1 Boston College women's hockey advances to the Hockey East semifinal with its 8-0 win over #8 seed Providence Saturday night at Kelley Rink. An explosive four-goal third period sealed the Eagles' weekend sweep of the Friars.
Boston College set the tone early with three goals in the opening frame. Junior forward Dana Trivigno put the Eagles up, 1-0, just over two minutes into the contest.
Junior forward Alex Carpenter added on as she lifted her 33rd goal of the season top shelf to make it 2-0, BC.
As time expired in the first period, junior forward Haley Skarupa capitalized on the Eagles' man advantage with a power play goal to send BC into the first intermission with a three-goal advantage.
Boston College dominated the Friar zone in the second period, outshooting PC, 17-8. Providence netminder Sarah Bryant held strong, denying an Eagle goal until late in the middle stanza.
The Eagles finally cracked Bryant with two minutes to play in the second. Senior forward Emily Field cleaned up a puck in front of the net to grind in her eighth goal of the season and give BC a 4-0 lead after two periods.
Four goals in the third period sealed BC's victory over the Friars.
Just over a minute into the final frame, Trivigno snuck the puck under Alana Serviss for her second goal of the game to extend the Maroon & Gold lead to 5-0.
