Field's late goal boosts BC by UNC

DURHAM, N.H. -- Junior Emily Field scored the game-winning goal with less than two minutes remaining in the third period, and Corinne Boyles made 31 saves to propel No. 7 Boston College to a 3-2 conference victory against New Hampshire at the Whittemore Center on Sunday afternoon.

The Wildcats got on the board first at 1:46 of the first period with a goal from Kayla Mork, her third of the season. Cassandra Vilgrain and Arielle O’Neill tallied the assists on the play.

Boston College answered just more than three minutes later when Taylor Wasylk netted a backhander off the rebound on Kate Leary’s shot to knot the score at 1-1. Leary skated from behind New Hampshire’s net to the top of the left circle where she fired a shot on goal that bounced free off the pads of UNH goaltender Vilma Vaattovaara. Wasylk, who was in perfect position in front of the crease, scooped up the puck and put it home.

Jess Ryan took advantage of a UNH power play and put the Wildcats up 2-1 with a wrister from the top of the slot that beat Boyles glove side at 19:39 of the first period. Ryan and Carlson cycled the puck back and forth along the blue line before Ryan found an opening and fired the puck through traffic for her fourth goal of the season.

The Eagles tied the score early in the middle frame with a goal from Emily Pfalzer at 2:22. Kate Leary skated the puck into the Wildcats’ zone and lost control when a UNH defender poked the puck loose, but Pfalzer was there to pick it up and fired a shot from the right faceoff dot that found its way past Vaattovaara and into the net to knot the score at 2-2.

Ryan had a chance to score her second goal of the game with 1:39 to go in the second period when she had a wide open shot from the slot, but chose to send a pass to Nicole Gifford who was expecting Ryan to take the shot and let the puck slide past her at the top of the crease.

Field scored the game-winning goal at 18:04 of the third period when she tipped a shot by Haley McLean passed Vaattovaara, putting BC up 3-2.

No. 2 Wisconsin 2, Minnesota-Duluth 0

MADISON, Wis. -- Supported by a loud home crowd, No. 2 overcame some physical play and a flurry of penalties to shutout WCHA-rival Minnesota Duluth 2-0 on Sunday in an intense conclusion to the weekend's two-game series at LaBahn Arena.

Following a 3-1 win against the Bulldogs on Saturday, the Badgers faced a very physical UMD squad in the final game of the series. Both teams saw a wealth of power play opportunities as a combined 12 penalties were called.

But only Wisconsin was able to find success on the power play, as sophomore Erika Sowchuk found the back of the net near the end of the first period. Freshman Sarah Nurse later extended UW's lead by lighting the lamp with five minutes left in the game to tally her ninth goal of the season.
