#7 Boston College Women's Hockey Overwhelms Providence College, 6-1

BCEagles.com

The Eagles powered past the Friars with goals by the usual suspects.

After a disappointing 5-5 tie to the hated BU Terriers on Sunday, Boston College (8-2-1, 4-1-1 WHEA) broke out the gold jerseys and played sparkling hockey to overwhelm the Friars (6-4-1, 4-1-0 WHEA) 6-1 at Conte Forum.

BC started out playing well enough, but after going down 1-0 to PC halfway through the first, the Eagles really picked up the tempo. A 13-6 Boston College shot advantage in the first period gave way to a dominant second frame which saw the Eagles outshoot Providence a whopping 16-5, potting three goals in the process off the sticks of Trivigno, Carpenter, and Field.

The third period was more of the same as Haley Skarupa scored just 30 seconds in, and the rout was on. Kate Leary and Meghan Grieves gave BC the touchdown and that was that. The final shot count was 44-18 to BC.

Worth noting is that all six of BC's goals were scored by a freshmen or sophomore -- the Eagles may have the brightest future of any team in the country.

Not too much can be taken away from this win, other than the fact that it's good to see that BC still has the ability to put away weak opponents. PC was receiving votes in the poll thanks to a healthy 6-3-1 record coming into the game, but unfortunately their schedule is made up almost entirely of the bottom of women's hockey in Maine, Bemidji State, Vermont, and St. Cloud State. The only decent competition they've played other than us was Mercyhurst, and the Friars are now 0-3-0 against ranked competition.

BC continues their strange scheduling with a game against unranked Dartmouth on Monday (??) up in Hanover before entering a big, big home-and-home set against #8 Northeastern (7-1-1, 3-1-0 WHEA) next weekend.
