Daryl Watts led the charge with two goals and an assist, and four different Eagles scored as BC women’s hockey dominated the Terriers 5-1 in the Hockey East Tournament semifinals Saturday.
Boston University women’s hockey started off the season slowly, winning just one of its first seven games, but enters the Beanpot on a roll. The Terriers are unbeaten in their last seven games.
BC has the seventh-worst penalty kill percentage in the country, and has also converted on just one of its past 25 power play opportunities—both reasons the Eagles have had an inconsistent season.
Daryl Watts brought the Eagles within one score early in the third period with her 11th goal of the season, but BC wasn’t able to complete a late comeback and dropped its second straight to the Terriers.
The Eagles had a two-goal lead twice against their rivals earlier this season, but never felt comfortable in a narrow win over a Terriers team that has the tendency to make things difficult.
Behind goals from four different players, BC rallied for two unanswered goals after giving up an early two-goal lead to knock off its Comm. Ave rival—who it hasn’t lost to since Nov. 5, 2016.
A bit more than a month ago, BC pulled out a 4-3 victory at Walter Brown Arena. Still undefeated in the Hockey East, the Eagles will look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the season series this weekend.
