BOSTON - Seven different Terriers lit the lamp, including five in the first period alone, to help lift the No. 7/6 Boston University women's ice hockey team to a convincing 9-2 win over Vermont on Sunday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.
BU (16-6-2, 11-4-0 WHEA) avenged a 2-0 loss to Vermont (11-15-1, 2-12-0 WHEA) on Saturday with a terrific 60-minute performance. Twelve different Terriers registered a point, with freshmen Victoria Bach and Rebecca Leslie leading the way with three points apiece. Both players tallied a goal and added two assists. Senior captain Marie-Philip Poulin, sophomore Samantha Sutherland and junior Lillian Ribeirinha-Braga each had one-goal, one-assist afternoons while sophomore Maddie Elia chipped in a pair of helpers.
Sophomore goaltender Victoria Hanson got the start for BU and stopped all 15 shots she saw over 40 minutes before ceding the cage to classmate Mia Becker in the third period. Becker made nine saves in her first collegiate appearance, with her biggest stop coming when she denied Brittany Zuback, the Catamounts' leading goal scorer, on a penalty shot.
Junior Diana Bennett found the back of the net for the first time this season and classmate Rebecca Russo also lit the lamp. Hanson recorded her first collegiate point on Poulin's goal, joining senior Shannon Doyle and juniors Kayla Tutino, Sarah Lefort and Alexis Woloschuk with an assist. BU became the only team in the NCAA to boast two goaltenders with at least one assist this season after Hanson's helper.
The Terriers scored five goals in a period for the first time since Oct. 25, 2008, with Ribeirinha-Braga beginning the offensive onslaught just 55 seconds into the proceedings. Her shot from the left point had eyes through traffic and beat Molly Depew (17 saves).
Bach and Bennett scored 43 seconds apart to lift BU to a 3-0 lead 8:47 into the game. Doyle slid a pass across the top of the UVM zone to Ribeirinha-Braga, who got by a defender and found Bach between the circles for the finish. It was Bennett's turn moments later when she fired home a shot from the left point for her second career strike.
Madison Litchfield, who earned the shutout on Saturday, came in following Bennett's goal but did not fare much better. Leslie put the first puck past Litchfield at the 10:54 mark off an offensive-zone draw. Woloschuk kept the puck in the zone after a Catamount clearing attempt and sent it to Leslie in the left corner. The freshman curled into the left circle before she wristed in her first goal of the game.
Russo finished the furious first frame with her eight marker of the season at the 15:09 juncture. Poulin got the puck to Elia before going off for a line change during a Terrier power play. Russo hopped over the boards and after Elia was knocked off the puck corralled a loose puck and slotted it past Litchfield.
Bach and Poulin made it a 7-0 game just 5:08 into the second stanza, with Bach taking a Leslie feed for the first goal of the game. Poulin then used an incredible individual effort for her team-leading 17th strike of the season. She gathered a Hanson rebound and went coast-to-coast, toe-dragging around one defender, skating alone into the UVM zone and then lifting a backhander over Litchfield.
Sutherland forced a Catamount turnover to tally her unassisted goal with 1:13 remaining in the period to make it an 8-0 lead after 40 minutes. Dayna Colang got a goal back for Vermont in the third period before Leslie closed the Terriers' account at the 7:30 mark thanks to a Bach pass.
Vermont made it a 9-2 game and nearly got a third goal if not for Becker's terrific save. Zuback was awarded a penalty shot after she was tripped on a breakaway, but Becker stood tall and denied Zuback with her left pad.
The Terriers will begin a five-game stretch away from home on Saturday, Jan. 31, when they trek to Storrs, Connecticut to take on UConn. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 p.m.
