BOSTON - Sophomore Maddie Elia scored two goals and all three Terrier netminders combined to make 32 saves as the No. 5/6 Boston University women's ice hockey team defeated Queen's University, 3-0, in an exhibition game on Saturday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.

Playing in its lone tune-up game before the regular-season gets underway on Oct. 3, BU took a 1-0 lead at the end of the first period and held that advantage throughout the duration thanks to a strong effort between the pipes. Sophomore Victoria Hanson played the first 20 minutes and made 13 saves before giving way to classmate Mia Becker, who stopped all 10 shots she faced. Freshman Erin O'Neil played the final frame and turned aside nine shots.

Junior Kayla Tutino played for the first time since November of 2013 and scored the game-winner with a wicked shot from the faceoff circle. With the Terriers on a power play, senior Shannon Stoneburgh kept the puck in at the blue line and settled it for Tutino. The forward skated towards the left dot before rifling a shot into the top corner.

Elia's two second-period goals came in a span of 1:42, beginning with her marker at 14:39 of the stanza. The play began when junior Alexis Woloschuk fired a shot from the point. The rebound came out to Elia on the goal line, who banked the puck in off Gaels goaltender Caitlyn Lahonen (28 saves). Elia made it a 3-0 game when she converted from between the circles with helpers credited to junior Lillian Ribeirinha-Braga and Dakota Woodworth.

Queen's had three power-play chances in the final 20 minutes, but the Terriers held the Gaels to just four shots over those six minutes. BU featured four players who made their Terrier debuts, including Becker, who was brilliant between the pipes. Freshmen Savannah Newton and Anna Streifel each blocked a shot while O'Neil was sharp in her 20 minutes of work.

The Terriers will open the 2014-15 regular season next weekend in Minneapolis when they face St. Cloud State (Oct. 3) and host Minnesota (Oct. 4) at Ridder Arena, home of the 2015 Frozen Four.
