Women’s Hockey
The Eagles played a pair of games against Providence this weekend. On Friday, the Eagles scored first, with Gaby Roy breaking a 0-0 tie midway through the 2nd period. Unfortunately for BC, the Friars would score twice in the 3rd to earn a 2-1 victory.

On Saturday, Abby Newhook was the hero for BC. She put the Eagles up 1-0 at 7:48 in the second period, and then scored the overtime game winning goal after Providence tied things up in the third, earning BC a 2-1 OT win.

Also of note: Abigail Levy made over 30 saves in both games for BC, as she has been consistently doing all year.

A pair of comeback sets helped BC to victory in their only game this week, as the Eagles defeated Duke 3-1 despite being down for portions of both the first and fourth sets. The Eagles won sets 1, 2, and 4 by scores of 28-26, 25-13, and 27-25, and dropped set 3 to Duke by just 2 points.

BC scored an impressive 10 aces during the match, with Clare Naughton and Grace Penn each scoring 3. Naughton also led the Eagles with 12 kills and was second on the team with 11 digs.
