BOSTON – The Holy Cross women’s hockey team lost to No. 8 Boston University, 7-1, Saturday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena in Boston.

The Crusaders and Terriers took turns going on the power play in the first frame, with the sides killing off all three penalties. Julia Pelletier made 11 saves in the period for Holy Cross to keep things scoreless going into the second.

The second period saw the Crusaders take a short-lived lead on a Carlie Magier power play goal. Tori Messina sent a shot in from just inside the blue line that Julie Matthias got on the end of. Matthias’ shot was saved by Schroeder, but Magier was there for the rebound. The Terriers began to answer less than three minutes later and rattled off three goals of their own in a span of one minute and 16 seconds. They would add a fourth in the frame to go into the third up, 4-1.  

BU scored three more times in the third, including an empty-netter, to claim the victory.

NOTES & NUMBERS:

  • The Crusaders killed all five of their penalties on the day, which is only the second time they’ve gone 5-for-5 on the kill this season.
  • Magier’s goal gives her six on the year. The assists were Matthias and Messina’s seventh and first of the year respectively.

UP NEXT:

Holy Cross will travel to Vermont to take on the Catamounts in a pair of games on Feb. 15 and 16 in the Crusaders’ penultimate weekend of competition this season.
