CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Fourteen different Eagles recorded at least one point - headlined by Haley Skarupa's fifth career hat trick - as the second-ranked Boston College women's hockey team topped Providence, 9-1, on Wednesday afternoon.

The win improved the Eagles' record to 16-0-0 on the season and 10-0-0 in Hockey East play. Providence fell to 3-10-0 overall and 3-6-0 in conference action.

BC had a 2-0 lead after the first period, but a four-goal second stanza put the game out of reach for the Friars, who broke Gabri Switaj's shutout bid with a power-play goal early in the third period.

- Gabri Switaj improved to 3-0-0 on the season with the 17-save performance in goal


Head coach Katie Crowley
"Today we were able to play all four lines and everyone got in. They did a great job. Some of those kids haven't seen a lot of ice time. I thought in this game they were really good so I was excited to see that. I was also excited to see everyone working together. I thought we were really good on turnovers - if we made them or they made them - adjusting, and we're going to need that when we play (fourth-ranked) Northeastern (on Saturday) in their rink. It's a big game for us on Saturday and we have to be focused and ready to go. I thought we passed the puck really well today, handled pucks well. Hopefully we continue to do that on Saturday."


1st, 4:40 // 1-0 - BC GOAL: Dana Trivigno played Kristyn Capizzano in for a quick shot, which was saved. Trivigno picked up the rebound and fed Makenna Newkirk coming in hard on the far side, where the freshman beat Madison Myers high with the goaltender down from the original shot.

1st, 10:21 // 2-0 - BC GOAL: Lexi Bender found Kenzie Kent along the half boards, who played Haley Skarupa at center ice. The winger found Carpenter near the blue line and she skated deep in the zone before playing a pass back to Skarupa skating into the slot for the re-direction.

2nd, 4:03 // 3-0 - BC GOAL: Megan Keller started the play deep in the Eagles zone, playing the puck up to Carpenter at center ice near the BC bench. Carpenter fed Skarupa into the Friars' zone before she got the puck back and beat Myers high.

2nd, 5:38 // 4-0 - BC GOAL (PPG): With the puck on the perimeter, Keller cycled out toward the boards and Carpenter replaced her at the point, skated in and launched a shot that was re-directed by Skarupa down low in front of the goal.

2nd, 6:53 // 5-0 - BC GOAL (SHG): While down a player, Trivigno took the faceoff and won the draw over to Kaliya Johnson, who returned the puck back to Trivigno. She broke up the boards on a two-on-one with Capizzano. Trivigno's initial shot was saved, but Capizzano poked in the rebound.

2nd, 19:59 // 6-0 - BC GOAL: Grace Bizal played the puck up the boards to Meghan Grieves, she skated in and fed Tori Sullivan behind the goal. Her quick pass found Grieves in front for the deflection just before the second intermission horn.

3rd, 1:41 // 6-1 - PC GOAL (PPG): Providence cycled the puck around and after Gabri Switaj saved Christina Putigna's shot, Cassidy Carels ended up with the puck and beat Switaj.

3rd, 8:04 // 7-1 - BC GOAL: Skarupa collected the hat trick when she sent Carpenter's centering pass in past Alanna Serviss. Kent got the play going, finding Carpenter at the blue line with space. Carpenter skated the wing and slid a pass under the defender, finding Skarupa at the doorstep

3rd, 12:52 // 8-1 - BC GOAL: Haley McLean scored her first goal of the season. Ryan Little skated the puck off the boards near the point, skated toward the far face-off circle. Her shot was saved and Molly Slowe got the quick rebound for McLean, who slid in and lifted the puck up over Serviss.

3rd, 17:20 // 9-1 - BC GOAL: Skarupa played the puck to the point where Bizal's shot was deflected wide of goal and Kent was on the doorstep for the tap-in
