Boston College Women's Hockey Advances To Frozen Four

Congratulations to the Boston College women's hockey team, who used a four goal first period to beat the fifth-seeded Minnesota Golden Gophers 4-1 yesterday in the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals. Ashley Motherwell, Melissa Bizzari, Kelli Stack scored four goals in the game's first 14 minutes, while Molly Schaus made 30 saves in the victory.
