BOSTON - Senior Rebecca Russo scored with 0.3 seconds left to lift the No. 8 Boston University women's ice hockey team to a dramatic 2-1 victory over UConn on Friday night at Walter Brown Arena.
BU (1-0) and UConn (0-1) were destined for overtime until Russo's heroics sent the crowd home happy. Sophomore Victoria Bach began the sequence by bringing the puck into the UConn zone. Classmate Rebecca Leslie recovered the puck in the corner and skated out in front of the net. Her shot was saved, but Russo was on the doorstep to knock home the rebound before the buzzer sounded.
Russo's goal completed a third-period comeback for the Terriers that was sparked by freshman Sammy Davis, who notched her first collegiate goal 8:53 into the final frame to tie the game, 1-1. Senior Lillian Ribeirinha-Braga assisted on Davis' goal.
Junior Victoria Hanson got the start between the pipes for the Terriers and made 20 saves, including nine in the final frame. BU outshot the Huskies, 48-21, and had 110 total attempts to just 35 for UConn.
UConn struck first at the 11:21 mark of the second stanza when Brittany Berisoff's shot from below the right faceoff circle snuck past Hanson. The Terriers ramped up the pressure after falling behind, but despite a 34-12 lead in shots on goal, trailed entering the third period.
Davis evened the score thanks to a great individual effort. Ribeirinha-Braga retrieved the puck in her defensive end and pushed it forward to Davis, who raced up the left wing, got to the left circle and uncorked a shot that beat Elaine Chuli (46 saves).
The Terriers will hit the road for the first
