CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -
Sophomore Jesse Compher
, freshman Mackenna Parker
and junior Abby Cook
each scored for the Boston University women's ice hockey team, but the Terriers fell at No. 4 Boston College, 4-3, on Tuesday night at Conte Forum.
Compher added an assist to extend her point streak to eight games and her multi-point streak to four games. Parker notched her third goal in as many games while redshirt junior Sammy Davis
and sophomore Nara Elia
each tallied two assists.
BC (11-3-0, 8-1-0 WHEA) snapped a three-game unbeaten streak by BU (3-4-4, 3-4-4 WHEA).
HOW IT HAPPENED
- BC scored the first two goals of the game, but the Terriers rallied for two goals of their own to keep the game tied after 20 minutes.
- Compher cut the deficit in half at 14:43 of the period. Elia collected the puck behind the BC cage and quickly dished it to a wide-open Compher in front of the net. Compher went bar down for her seventh strike of the season.
- Parker then evened the score with 2:56 to play in the opening frame when Davis' shot got behind goaltender Maddy McArthur and Parker was in the perfect spot to knock it into the back of the net.
- The Terriers went 4-for-5 on the penalty kill in the second stanza, but a BC power-play goal at the 4:08 mark gave the Eagles a 3-2 edge heading to the third period.
- BC added to its lead at 8:12 of the third period, but the Terriers responded with a power-play marker of their own at 14:10 of the stanza when Cook blasted a shot from the top of the zone and past McArthur.
- The Terriers pulled sophomore Corinne Schroeder (33 saves) in favor of an extra attacker for the final minute, but BC held on to escape with the win.
