In the first round of the National Invitation Tournament on Thursday, BC women’s basketball defeated Maine in a 25-point victory.
The losing streak hit six for BC, as Maine’s Mitchell Fossier scored with less than a minute left in overtime to lift the Black Bears to a series sweep.
Makenna Newkirk picked up three assists, Megan Keller scored, and the Eagles beat Maine 5-2 on senior day Friday afternoon. BC has now won four straight games.
Eagles head coach Katie Crowley picked up her 300th career win as Kelly Browne scored a third-period goal to lift BC past Maine for its third straight win.
For the 21st time in a row, BC knocked off Hockey East foe Vermont, running its all-time record against its New England neighbors to a remarkable 45-3-3.
Delaney Belinskas has always played multiple sports, and nothing has changed—she’s playing key roles with women’s hockey and softball at BC.
Brian Dempsey tied a career high with four hits, and Dante Baldelli scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning before a lighting storm kicked in, slightly abbreviating BC’s two-run victory over Maine.
With nothing to play for other than its atypical senior class—graduate transfer Kevin Lohan and managers Chuck Van Kula, Lucas Hurtt, and James Daly—BC capped off the season sweep of Maine.
Graduate transfer Kevin Lohan scored his first two goals of the season, and, as a whole, the Eagles tallied six in the final two frames, running away with their third-straight Hockey East regular season title.
