Boston College Women's Hockey Captures Hockey East Tournament Title

Congrats to the Boston College women's hockey team, who captured the school's first ever Women's Hockey East Tournament title with a 3-1 victory over Northeastern.

"Junior left wing Danielle Welch tallied two first-period points - one goal and one assist - and freshman Taylor Wasylk tallied a third-period score to propel second-seeded Boston College to its first Women's Hockey East Tournament title with a 3-1 win over fifth-seeded Northeastern on Sunday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.

Senior forward Kelli Stack, who lifted BC past Providence with an overtime goal in Saturday's semifinal and finished the tournament with one goal and three points, captured tournament Most Valuable Player accolades. Stack was joined by Welch and defenseman Blake Bolden on the All-Tournament team.

Senior goaltender Molly Shaus stopped 24 shots to earn the victory and set a school record with her 23rd win this season. The Natick, Mass., resident broke her previous mark of 22 wins set in 2008-09."

With the win, Boston College (23-6-6) automatically qualifies for this year's NCAA Tournament. The Eagles have been selected as the Tournament's No. 4 seed, and will host Minnesota, the runner up in the WCHA, at Conte Forum on Saturday, March 12. I know the game is smack in the middle of spring break, but if you are in the area, head on over to Conte Forum and support the Eagles in their run to the Women's Frozen Four. 

The eight-team NCAA Tournament field was announced at 6:30 over at NCAA.com:

No. 8 Minnesota-Duluth (22-8-3) at No. 1 Wisconsin* (34-2-2)
No. 5 Minnesota (26-9-2) at No. 4 Boston College* (24-6-6)
No. 7 Dartmouth (22-11-0) at No. 2 Cornell* (30-2-1)
No. 6 Mercyhurst (29-5-0) at No. 3 Boston University (25-6-4)

Should the Eagles beat the Golden Gophers, BC would advance to the Women's Frozen Four which will be held at Tullio Arena in Erie, Pennsylvania on March 18 and 20.

Go Eagles!
