BC’s major fall sports are on a tear to open the 2018 season, and it’s an opening surge that can be traced back to last year’s development and late success.
Sam Coffey scored the first goal on a penalty kick, before providing the assist for Kayla Jennings’ second, giving the Eagles a lead they would never relinguish en route to a comfortable win over Temple.
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.
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.
