Milagros Arteta scored her fifth goal of the season and the Eagles stood strong against a last second penalty corner to win 2-1.
UConn dominated the ice, putting up three goals in the second period, and upsetting the Boston College women’s hockey 5-1.
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.
