BURLINGTON, Vt. - Sophomore Victoria Bach recorded a career-high four points, including two third-period goals, to help lead the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 5-3 win over Ohio State on Sunday at Gutterson Fieldhouse.
Both BU (11-7-0) and Ohio State (6-10-0) earned a split of their two Windjammer Classic games. The Terriers led 4-1 early in the third after Bach's first goal of the game before they withstood a Buckeye rally that reduced the deficit to just one at 4-3. Bach added her second goal of the contest at the 10:33 mark to help seal the result.
Three other Terriers had multi-point afternoons, as senior captain Kayla Tutino (1g, 1a), senior Sarah Lefort (1g, 1a) and sophomore Rebecca Leslie (1g, 1a) all lit the lamp and added a helper. Senior Lillian Ribeirinha-Braga added an assist for her second point in as many games while classmate Jordan Juron and junior Alexis Crossley also had an assist apiece.
BU was terrific on the power play, going 3-of-4 on the afternoon and generating 14 of its 27 shots on goal with a player advantage.
Sophomore Erin O'Neil stopped 26 shots to improve to 7-2-0 on the season. Half of her saves came in the second period and she helped the Terriers keep Ohio State scoreless on four power-play chances.
Tutino opened the scoring on the Terriers' first power-play chance of the game just 3:58 into the proceedings. Bach tried to cash in on a rebound after a Lefort shot, but her attempt went wide. The sophomore collected her own rebound, however, and skated back around the top of the zone before getting to the bottom of the right circle and dishing the disc to Tutino. The senior captain capitalized for her fourth goal of the season.
Leslie beat the first-period buzzer to give the Terriers a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes. She skated out of her own zone before shipping the puck to Juron on the left wing. Juron fired a shot that Alex LaMere (22 saves) stopped, but the rebound popped right out to Leslie. Her shot crossed the goal line with 0.1 on the clock, which was confirmed by video review.
Lefort extended the lead to 3-0 with the Terriers' second power-play goal of the game. After head coach Brian Durocher used his timeout to give his top power-play unit some rest and instruction, the group responded with a strong shift that culminated in Lefort's sixth strike of the season from the edge of the crease.
Bach made it 4-1 just 1:44 into the third period. Ribeirinha-Braga knocked away a Buckeye pass and Bach did the rest, skating up ice and uncorking a wrist shot that beat LaMere. It proved to be a huge goal, as Ohio State scored twice in a span of 1:32 to cut the lead to 4-3 with 16:04 remaining in regulation.
The insurance goal for the Terriers came with 9:27 to play when Bach redirected a Crossley shot that originated from the top of the zone. They then held the Buckeyes scoreless with LaMere pulled in favor of an extra attacker for the final moments of the contest.
BU will return to league play on Dec. 5 when the Terriers begin a home-and-home series with UConn in Storrs, Connecticut. Puck drop on Saturday is set for 3 p.m.
