CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - No. 2/3 Boston College women's ice hockey (6-0-1, 2-0-0 WHEA) defeated Providence, 8-0, Friday night at Kelley Rink in game one of a home-and-home series this weekend. With Friday night's victory, the Eagles have extended their win streak to four games and remain undefeated. Freshmen goaltenders Katie Burt and Gabriella Switaj combined for BC's second shutout of the season.

Boston College got its first man advantage of the night after a Providence hooking penalty less than four minutes into the game. Senior forward Emily Field scored her first goal of the season on the BC power play. Freshman defenseman Megan Keller fired the puck from the blue line to Field, who found the back of the net past PC goaltender Allie Morse on the bottom left corner. With Field's power play goal, Boston College is now 8-30 in power play efficiency.

Field added her second goal of the night with ten minutes remaining in the first frame on a back-handed shot into a wide-open net from fresman Toni Ann Miano and sophomore Andie Anastos. The Eagles headed into the first intermission leading 2-0 over the Friars.

The Eagles had a big four-goal second period starting with Toni Ann Miano's first collegiate goal assisted by junior forward Alex Carpenter eight minutes into the second stanza. With her assist to Miano, Carpenter has now tallied at least one assist in every game this season and extends her point streak to seven games.

Freshman Tori Sullivan also netted her first career goal for the Eagles with a sniper in the upper left corner to put the Eagles up, 4-0, with seven minutes remaining in the second period.

Alex Carpenter tipped in Dana Trivigno's rebound two minutes later for the Eagles' fifth goal of the night.

Sophomore forward Haley McLean extended the Eagle lead to 6-0 after a tip in off of Meghan Grieves' initial shot.

After McLean's goal, freshman goaltender Gabriella Switaj made her collegiate debut in the net for the Eagles.

Six minutes into the final period, freshman forward Tori Sullivan notched her second goal of the game off a backhanded shot in the upper left corner to put the Eagles up, 7-0.

Alex Carpenter scored a top shelf goal-her second of the game-to give Boston College a final winning score of 8-0.

BC's 45 shots on goal are the most shots the Eagles have tallied this season. The Boston College defense held Providence to just nine shots, the fewest by an opponent this season.

Toni Ann Miano led Boston College with a +5 rating on the night.

No. 2/3 Boston College remains undefeated in Hockey East play, having defeated UNH and Providence.

It's the Friars' turn to host tomorrow as the Eagles travel to Providence, R.I. for a game at Schneider Arena at 7 p.m.
