BC saw a tremendous season come to an unexpected end against Ohio State, losing back-to-back games for the first time all year.
With a fourth-straight Frozen Four on the line, the Eagles will host Ohio State for the first time in program history on Saturday afternoon in the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals.
BC got on the board first, but from that point forward, Connecticut took over. The Huskies rattled off three-straight goals, en route a decisive two-score victory and a trip to the Hockey East Championship.
Katie Burt recorded 30-plus saves for the fourth-straight game and the Eagles’ top-three scorers lit the lamp, paving the way for a Game One victory in the Hockey East Tournament Quarterfinals.
Eagles forward Daryl Watts tied the Hockey East single-season goals record, while defenseman Toni Ann Miano tied a school record in Friday’s 5-0 shutout of Maine.
After Daryl Watts tallied a goal in the waning minutes of the third period, Toni Ann Miano netted the game-winner in overtime to crown the Eagles Beanpot Champions for the third year in a row.
Makenna Newkirk recorded her second career hat trick and Daryl Watts notched her 10th multi-goal performance of the season, fueling BC’s second-straight, five-goal win over Northeastern.
Northeastern outshot the No. 3 Eagles, but a hat trick by Makenna Newkirk and two goals by Daryl Watts, the nation’s leading scorer, lifted them to their sixth-straight Beanpot Final.
