BC held an early 1-0 lead, but then coughed up goals in the second and third period to fall to the Eagles, their second loss in a row.
No. 5 BC suffered its first loss of the season as UConn’s Morgan Fisher had 27 saves and Viki Harkness scored twice in a comfortable 5-2 victory for the hosts.
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.
Caitrin Lonergan opened the scoring for the Eagles, while Megan Keller added two goals in the second period and Maddy McArthur made 16 saves to preserve the shutout for BC.
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.
