BOSTON - Meghan Grieves scored both of the Eagles' goals as the No. 1 Boston College women's hockey team earned its first road win at Harvard in 10 years on Tuesday night. The Eagles topped the Crimson 2-0 as Grieves struck once each in the first and second periods.
Katie Burt recorded her ninth shutout of the season and recorded her 50th career win, becoming the fastest (55 appearances) and youngest (18 years, 358 days) to reach 50 wins.
BC's win at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center was the Eagles' first since Feb. 14, 2006 - and just their second-ever on the road against the Crimson.
Harvard was the last team to defeat the Eagles, topping BC, 2-1, in the 2015 NCAA semifinals last March.

Tuesday, January 19, 2016
- BC picked up its first road win at Harvard since 2006
- Meghan Grieves scored both of BC's goals, her first multi-goal effort of the season
- Tori Sullivan recorded assists on both of Grieves' goals, her first multi-assist contest of the year
- Katie Burt recorded her ninth shutout of the season and the 19th of her career to become the youngest and fastest goaltender in NCAA history to reach 50 wins
Boston College head coach Katie Crowley
"I thought that (third) line played great. They did everything we asked of them and more. To put two goals in against that team and that goaltender is awesome, so I was happy with how they played, and how the team played as well.
"I thought Katie (Burt) was great. When we needed a big save, she gave us one. Especially there at the end on their power-play. But all game, she didn't give up any rebounds, so they didn't have any second chances on the shots she took. I thought she held down the fort back there and made it easier for our kids to turn around and score goals".
HOW IT HAPPENED
1st, 11:02 // 1-0 - BC GOAL: Toni Ann Miano pushed the puck up the boards to Tori Sullivan, who broke into the zone and saw her shot saved by Emerance Maschmeyer. However, the rebound was loose and Meghan Grieves, who was trailing the play, poked it in through traffic for the 1-0 lead
2nd, 18:26 // 2-0 - BC GOAL: Sullivan broke up a Harvard rush at center ice and the puck fell to Grieves. The senior broke in down the left wing and curled inside, where her backhand beat Maschmeyer for the 2-0 lead.
