CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Senior Kristyn Capizzano scored midway through the third period to tie the score as the No. 6 Boston College women's hockey team and cross-town rival Boston University played to a final 1-1 score line at Kelley Rink on Saturday afternoon.

After neither side managed a go-ahead goal in the third period, the teams played a five-minute overtime period in which the Eagles out-shot BU 9-0. However, Terriers goaltender Victoria Hanson stopped all nine shots and pushed her game total to 45 saves as the teams ended knotted.

BC goalie Katie Burt made 28 saves.

Boston University took a 1-0 lead midway through the second period when Nina Rogers put the Terriers ahead on a power-play goal. Capizzano's game-tying strike also came on the power play just 1:54 into the third period.

Boston College (13-3-4, 10-2-2 HEA) extended its unbeaten streak to eight games - 6-0-2 - with the draw. Boston University (12-7-2, 7-6-1 HEA) earned its first point at Kelley Rink since a 5-5 tie on Nov. 3, 2012.
