Both hockey teams are in action this weekend, with the men playing a two-game set against No. 13 Arizona State, while the women attempt to right the ship in conference play against New Hampshire.
The Eagles have won the last five regular season titles, but a white-hot Northeastern side and an uncharacteristic season from Katie Crowley’s bunch has BC looking up at the holiday break.
Megan Keller and Kali Flanagan both went in the first round of the five-team draft, while Makenna Newkirk was the third BC player off the board in the second round.
For the first time since the 2013-14 season, BC has lost seven games under head coach Katie Crowley—and its just entering the winter break with a plethora of games ahead of it.
Megan Keller scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lift the Eagles past a resilient Merrimack team, snapping a brief two-game losing streak.
Daryl Watts brought the Eagles within one score early in the third period with her 11th goal of the season, but BC wasn’t able to complete a late comeback and dropped its second straight to the Terriers.
The Eagles had a two-goal lead twice against their rivals earlier this season, but never felt comfortable in a narrow win over a Terriers team that has the tendency to make things difficult.
Behind goals from four different players, BC rallied for two unanswered goals after giving up an early two-goal lead to knock off its Comm. Ave rival—who it hasn’t lost to since Nov. 5, 2016.
