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 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.
Behind braces from Olivia Vaughn and Gaby Carreiro, BC rallied for two second-half goals after squandering an early lead to beat Quinnipiac in it’s season opener.
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.
Coming off its first loss to Harvard in 15 years, BC had a point to prove against Boston University. The Eagles’ shutout served as a reminder that they’re still the team to beat on Comm. Ave.
