CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Delaney Belinskas recorded her second hat trick of the season while Andie Anastos and Kristyn Capizzano each scored twice as the sixth-ranked Boston College women's hockey team claimed a 7-1 win over New Hampshire at Kelley Rink on Saturday afternoon.

BC jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first period behind Belinskas' first two goals, and then Anastos scored a pair less than 90 seconds apart to push the lead to 4-0 as the second period started.

Capizzano added one more goal midway through the second half, then struck 56 seconds into the third to stake BC to a 6-0 lead. Belinskas' third came at 15:32 before UNH scored on Molly Barrow with less than two minutes to play.

Boston College (9-3-2, 8-2-0 HEA) earned its 12th straight game against New Hampshire (3-10-0, 3-5-0 HEA) and pushed its home undefeated streak to 58 games (56-0-2) dating back to October 2013.

BC out-shot the Wildcats 32-21 in the game as Gabri Switaj made 17 saves before giving way to Barrow late in the third. She stopped three of the four shots she saw.

Saturday, November 12, 2016
Kelley Rink at Conte Forum | Chestnut Hill, Mass.


1st, 8:17 | 1-0, BC GOAL - Boston College attacked first on a nice bang-bang play in the crease. Kali Flanagan shot it in from the point and Andie Anastos crashed the rebound on UNH goaltender Kyra Smith. The original attempted was blocked, but Delaney Belinskas was parked in front of the goalmouth to bat in the carom at 8:17 to draw first blood.

1st, 10:42 | 2-0, BC GOAL (PPG) - Shortly after BC's first strike, New Hampshire's Amy Schlagel was cited for hooking at 10:13 and the Eagles cashed in 29 seconds later for the 2-0 lead. Erin Connolly quarterbacked the play, jutting it out to Kenzie Kent on the near post for the first attempt. Kent shot it on Smith and Connolly was able to swat Kent's rebound to the other post where Belinskas was in almost the same spot two and a half minutes later to hammer home the power play tally and her second goal of the afternoon.

2nd, 1:13 | 3-0, BC GOAL (PPG) - UNH's Meghara McManus took a late slashing penalty to close out the first frame and the Eagles made them pay in the waning moments of the power play to start the second at 1:13. Kali Flanagan sent the puck out of Boston College's zone to Caitrin Lonergan waiting on UNH's blue line. Lonergan perfectly timed the onsides, skated it into New Hampshire's territory and connected with Andie Anastos on the right circle. Anastos took one stride and picked her spot on Smith for the 3-0 lead and BC's second power play goal of the day.

2nd, 2:40 | 4-0, BC GOAL - Just over a minute later, Anastos struck again in transition at 2:40 of the second stanza. Toni Ann Miano relayed the puck to Kent on the red line and Anastos took over from there. Anastos gained the zone and skated in on Smith, stuffing the puck ones on her left pad and then finally breaking through for her second goal of the day with the second effort. Following Anastos's second goal, UNH head coach Hilary Witt yanked Smith and opted for backup goaltender Hilary Cashin.

2nd, 10:37 | 5-0, BC GOAL - Boston College continued to call upon its speed and tally its fifth of the day in transition as Grace Bizal cycled the puck out of Boston College's end to Miano already in motion. Miano carved the about half the sheet with a perfect pass to Kristyn Capizzano who was already ahead of the Wildcat defense. Capizzano sped into UNH's end and beat Hilary Cashin in tight for the 5-0 lead at 10:37 of the second period.

3rd, 00:57 | 6-0, BC GOAL - The Eagles wasted no time on extending their lead to start the third after Miano stole the puck in a Wildcat breakout and switched sides over to Makenna Newkirk on the far side. Newkirk carved across the goalmouth and triggered on Cashin but the puck bounced off her right pad right where Capizzano streaked in to bang home the rebound 57 seconds into the third for a 6-0 lead.

3rd, 15:32 | 7-0, BC GOAL - Belinskas capped off her hat trick with a rip from between the circles after a nice move off the near boards. Kent snared the puck off the boards and Belinskas kicked it to Bizal on the red line. Kent rounded back into the play, grabbed the pass from Bizal and connected with Belinskas in the slot. Belinskas let off a quick snap shot to beat Cashin at 15:32 for the 7-0 lead.

3rd, 15:32 | 7-1, UNH GOAL - New Hampshire broke up the Eagles' shutout bid after Carlee Toews tipped a slap shot from Tori Howran within the blue line. Abby Chapman worked the puck off the near boards up to Howran at the top of the zone and she let loose a hard shot from the point. Toews was in position for the tip and snuck it past freshman Molly Barrow, who played the last 13:54 of regulation.
