The Eagles are undefeated—and haven’t allowed a goal in their last five games—as they head on the road to take on rival BU in a Thursday night matchup.
After Gianna Mitchell netted her team-leading fifth goal in the ninth minute, BC dug in its heels and impressed on defense against a nationally-ranked opponent.
Each of the Eagles three leading scorers found the back of the net, while the back line and goaltender Alexis Bryant posted their fourth consecutive clean sheet to roll past Stony Brook.
Sam Coffey notched a pair of goals, one in each half, leading the Eagles past their former Big East Rivals en route to the program’s first 4-0 start since 2009.
Sam Coffey accounted for four goals with her powerful right foot, and two came off the head of Gianna Mitchell in the box as BC rolled to a 5-0 shutout of visiting Albany.
The Eagles have plenty of returners—including two that’ve recovered from injuries that cost them all of 2017—and an impressive recruiting class that bodes well for the 2018 campaign.
A goal from Carly Leipzig wasn’t enough for the Eagles to make up for conceding three first-half goals to the Blue Devils.
