Neither team scored in the first half of the game, during which both squads put on strong defensive showings. Nell Weber opened the scoring in the 35th minute of play, taking a pass from Margo Carlin to put BC up 1-0. Elizabeth Warner scored off a penalty corner minutes later to give BC a 2-0 lead, and despite Wake cutting that lead to 2-1 in the fourth, BC was able to hold on to win.

BC’s undefeated streak was broken this weekend by #6 Northeastern. On Friday night, the Huskies scored 4 unanswered goals before BC was able to break through Aerin Frankel midway through the third period. Hannah Bilka picked up BC’s first goal to cut NU’s lead to 4-1, and Kelly Browne scored a power play goal just over 4 minutes later for a final score of 4-2 Huskies. On Saturday, Northeastern shut out BC 3-0.
BC goalie Abigail Levy continues to be fantastic - she made 47 saves on Friday and 35 saves on Saturday for a weekend total of 82 saves.

The teams were scoreless throughout regulation, although NC State led the Eagles 5-2 in shots on goal.
