Skarupa's two goals lift fifth-ranked Boston College past Quinnipiac
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Freshman forward Haley Skarupa notched two goals as No. 5 Boston College (7-3-2, 5-2-1 WHEA) blanked Quinnipiac (7-6-2, 4-3-1 ECAC) 3-0 on Friday at Ingalls Rink.
Corinne Boyles (27 saves) recorded her first shutout since a 4-0 win against Vermont last season and improved to 5-1-0 this year. Victoria Viglianti stopped 24 shots in the loss for the Bobcats.
The Bobcats had the better of the play in the first 20 minutes as they outshot the Eagles 14-8 but Skarupa’s (7) goal at the 15-minute mark turned out to be all BC needed.
Taylor Wasylk (2) gave BC some insurance two minutes into the second period on assists from Kate Leary and Meagan Mangene. Boyles remained strong in goal as she turned aside all nine Bobcats shots in the middle frame. Shots on goal after two periods were 23-19 in favor of Quinnipiac.
The Eagles put the game away in the third period when Skarupa notched her second goal of the game on an assist from Alex Carpenter.
