Boston College men’s hockey dropped its first contest of the season to UConn on Saturday after a feverish second period for the Huskies.
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.
