No. 5 BC downs New Hampshire
Roundup: Northeastern tops Connecticut, off to 4-0-0 start
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- Junior defenseman Blake Bolden and sophomore forward Taylor Wasylk each tallied a goal and two assists to help Boston College secure a 5-0 victory against New Hampshire on Saturday afternoon. A power-play goal from Wasylk in the second period was all the Eagles (2-1-1, 1-0-1 WHEA) needed to get past the Wildcats (3-2-1, 0-1-1 WHEA) for the fourth time in seven meetings.
Boston College goalkeeper Corinne Boyles (2-1-1) earned her first shutout of the season by stopping 16 shots, while the Eagles increased pressure eventually got to UNH goaltender Lindsey Minton (1-1-0), who made a season-best 30 saves in the loss. The shooting tally was even at five after the first frame, but Boston College simply wore down the opposing net-minder with 11 shots in the second and 19 in third.
The five-point margin of victory ties the highest for Boston College against UNH in program history, equaling the 7-2 win against the Wildcats on Nov. 2, 2006.
