The Eagles are off to a 1-0 start in Hockey East play and will try to keep the ball rolling on Saturday afternoon when it hosts Vermont—a team that is 0-24-1 against BC, dating back to January 2012.
Cayla Barnes scored the equalizer with 27.5 seconds remaining in regulation, and Grace Bizal slotted the game-winner in the extra frame to secure a second-straight overtime victory and a series sweep of the Saints.
Lindsay Agnew scored her second goal in a BC uniform, and it was a big one—the junior transfer from Minnesota scored a minute into overtime to lift the Eagles past visiting Saint Lawrence.
Eight different players recorded points, Maddy McArthur stopped 22 of 23 shots, and the Eagles won their 10th home opener in 12 tries under head coach Katie Crowley.
Savannah Norcross scored her first career goal on Saturday, while Daryl Watts picked up right where she left off in 2017, but it wasn’t enough as the Eagles fell twice to Minnesota Duluth to open their season.
