CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Alex Carpenter scored her second goal of the game 2:17 into overtime to lift Boston College's second-ranked women's hockey team to a 4-3 win over cross-town rival Boston University on Tuesday night at Kelley Rink.

BC (12-0-0, 6-0-0 HEA) held leads of 2-0 and 3-2 but the Terriers fought back to force overtime, where Carpenter combined with Haley Skarupa for the game-winning goal that preserved the Eagles' undefeated season so far.

Dana Trivigno scored BC's second goal, her 100th career point, while Kristyn Capizzano converted BC's third goal. BU's Rebecca Russo forced overtime with her goal at 6:39 of the third period to bring the Terriers level at 3-3. Sarah Steele and Maddie Elia each added single tallies for BU (6-6-0, 4-3-0 HEA).

Head coach Katie Crowley
"I was impressed how we maintained our composure and were able to win the game ... I thought our kids adjusted well. I think we were pretty good 4v4, so I'll take that OT win. But (Boston University is) a good hockey team. They've had a little bit of a struggle in the beginning of their year, but they're a very, very good hockey team and I'm glad we were in a game like that with them ... I think it's great (to play close games early in the season). You never want to say you want a close game, but I think it's good for our kids to be in those position and those situations when we're 5v3 again. That, to me, was a playoff hockey game. It felt like it. The energy of BU and BC, was great. There was great energy in the crowd. For our kids, that's awesome. And it was a lot of fun."


1st, 1:10 // 1-0 - BC GOAL: On a shift change, Makenna Newkirk played Megan Keller into the offensive zone, with Alex Carpenter skating in behind her. The defender curled and found Carpenter open in front of the goal, where she banged in the puck for the 1-0 lead.

1st, 16:16 // 2-0 - BC GOAL: Dana Trivigno pulled the puck off the boards near the edge of the circle, and sent it across the blue line to Toni Ann Miano at the far point. Miano sent a pass in down low, where Trivigno crashed the net and re-directed the puck past Victoria Hanson for the 2-0 lead and her 100th career point.

2nd, 11:30 // 2-1 - BU GOAL: On the power play, the Terriers dug the puck out from behind the BC goal and Sammy Davis and Sarah Steele traded passes, opening up a lane for Steele to find space through Katie Burt's goal.

2nd, 16:59 // 2-2 - BU GOAL: Maddie Elia stripped the BC defense just inside the BC blue line, and played Rebecca Russo. Russo took a stride and passed back to Elia who completed the 2-on-1 and brought BU back even with BC at 2-2.

3rd, 1:20 // 3-2 - BC GOAL: Lexi Bender kept the BU clearance attempt in the zone and skated in toward goal. Her shot from close range was saved, and Haley Skarupa pounded on the rebound, which went wide where Kristyn Capizzano was on the far post to push the puck in and regain the lead for BC

3rd, 6:39 // 3-3 - BU GOAL: Rebecca Leslie picked a loose puck up in the Terriers' zone and skated through neutral ice with Russo trailing. Leslie then skated out wide, and played Russo on the near post, who found space to beat Katie Burt to tie the score.

OT, 2:17 // 4-3 - BC GOAL: With teams playing 4v4 hockey, Alex Carpenter broke up the BU pass out of the zone at the blue line, keeping the play onside with Haley Skarupa still in the zone. Skarupa turned with the puck and found Carpenter on the 2-on-1 bid. Carpenter's shot beat Hanson and handed the Eagles' the win.
