Caitrin Lonergan opened the scoring four minutes before the end of the first period, and Olivia Finocchario added her first career goal in the third frame to seal the victory for the Eagles.
Last season, the Eagles dropped just five times all year—and one of those losses was to Connecticut in the Hockey East semifinals. BC didn’t leave much doubt in Friday’s rematch.
In their first-ever meeting with Holy Cross, the Eagles recorded four second-period goals and outshot the Crusaders, 56-19, to coast to a decisive victory and extend their six-game win streak.
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.
Three different BC skaters—Lindsay Agnew, Megan Keller, and Daryl Watts—found the back of the cage, and the Eagles kicked off the conference slate with a decisive victory.
