Box Score

BOSTON, Mass. - Four different Terriers found the back of the net to help lead the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 4-1 win over Merrimack on Saturday at Walter Brown Arena.

BU (9-5-3, 8-4-3) never trailed as the Terriers completed a weekend sweep of Merrimack (5-14-1, 4-10-1 HE) to extend their win streak to three games. Seniors Alex Allan and Mackenna Parker scored in a span of 1:43 during the first period while senior Courtney Correia and junior Haylee Blinkhorn each lit the lamp in the third period to put the game out of reach.

Parker also added an assist to finish the day with two points. Sophomore Lacey Martin notched the first two assists of her collegiate career for her first multi-point effort as a Terrier. Graduate student Ellie Larson, a natural defender who played left wing for BU on Saturday, matched her career high with a pair of assists. Junior Nadia Mattivi, senior Emma Wuthrich and sophomore Tamara Giaquinto also added one assist apiece.

Senior goaltender Kate Stuart was sharp for the Terriers, making 18 saves. BU outshot Merrimack, 39-19.


- BU opened the scoring 7:12 into the proceedings. Emma Gorski (35 saves) stopped Larson's initial shot, but Allan was in the perfect spot to fire home the rebound.

- Parker doubled the Terriers' lead just 1:43 later when she gathered the puck in the neutral zone, raced up the left wing and wristed a shot past Gorski.

- The Warriors quickly responded, halving their deficit with a marker just 24 seconds after Parker's goal.

- Neither team broke through in the second stanza, but Correia gave BU a two-goal cushion just 1:16 into the third period when she redirected Mattivi's shot past Gorski.

- Just 25 seconds after a video review confirmed a no-goal call on a Terrier strike, Blinkhorn made it 3-1. Martin began the sequence by forcing a turnover at the Merrimack blue line. Larson picked the puck up and created a 2-on-1 with Blinkhorn. The junior forward skated between the circles and one-timed the puck into the back of the net for her second goal of the campaign.
