Hockey (of the field and ice variety) is once again the name of the game for this week's edition of the BC Interruption Three Stars of the Week. While the football, women's soccer and men's soccer teams dropped tough games over the weekend, there were bright spots. BC men's hockey throttled Wisconsin, the women's team remained undefeated, and field hockey knocked off UMass. That's where we find this week's #1 star:
#1 Star: Eryn McCoy, field hockey
Eryn McCoy netted a hat trick, accounting for all of BC's scoring in a 3-2 win at UMass for the #13-ranked field hockey team. The win helped the team salvage a weekend split after dropping a 3-2 heartbreaker to Louisville on Friday night. The junior forward is now tied for the team lead with seven goals. She joins her twin sister Emily as an honoree on this year's three stars list.
#2 Star: Colin White, men's hockey
Freshman Colin White earned Hockey East Rookie of the Week honors for his two goal performance on Friday night in BC's demolition of the Wisconsin Badgers. The rookie has made his presence felt quickly for the Eagles and looks to be a huge addition to this year's team.
#3 Star: Austin Cangelosi, men's hockey
Like White, Cangelosi powered BC's rout with a pair of goals. Cangelosi also scored what was probably the prettiest goal of the game:
Other honorable mentions:
#4 Katie Burt, women's hockey: Her two shutout performances in net this weekend brought her to within one of BC's all time career shutouts record. She is in the first month of her sophomore season. Not bad.
#5 Alex Howell, football: BC's punter earned weekly honors as the top punter; he's certainly been asked to do a lot in recent weeks so it was nice to see him recognized.
Since this is our site and we can nominate who we want, Laura also felt compelled to put BC Alum Barry Almeida down as an honorable mention for scoring four goals in one game for the Utah Grizzlies. That's just an awesome name for a hockey team, even if it sounds like it's probably the name of an NBA team.
