The Eagles kick off their second half on Friday, looking to make a final push toward the NCAA Tournament.
Jerry York’s team is off to its best start with him at the helm (11-1-0) after BC took revenge on UConn with a 5-1 victory at Hartford’s XL Center.
BC’s young guns stood out as Makenna Newkirk slotted a goal and Katie Burt racked up her 14th career shutout.
The Eagles blew a late lead to the Huskies, their first loss in over a week.
Bad blood between Boston College and the University of Connecticut boiled over during the mid-2000s. It’s time for both schools to move on and embrace the rivalry.
Huskies’ goalie Rob Nichols put up a strong performance, but the Eagles’ power play proved just a little bit stronger.
With three goals by the sophomore forward and stellar goalie play down the stretch by Thatcher Demko, BC stays alive in the race for a tournament berth.
