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.
Alex Newhook had his first multi-goal game in an Eagles uniform, Spencer Knight registered a 30-save shutout, and No. 19 BC thoroughly dispatched the visiting Huskies.
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.
Sam Coffey notched a pair of goals, one in each half, leading the Eagles past their former Big East Rivals en route to the program’s first 4-0 start since 2009.
Winning her sixth-consecutive start, Jessica Dreswick pitched a two-hit complete game, and the Eagles made the most of a couple of timely two-baggers and Husky errors to stretch their win streak to 12.
BC got on the board first, but from that point forward, Connecticut took over. The Huskies rattled off three-straight goals, en route a decisive two-score victory and a trip to the Hockey East Championship.
