BU Women's Hockey Continues Flying Start

While Noonsy and the boys were handling the Friars this weekend our other future 2013 Natty Champs picked up a couple nice OOC wins to keep their record unbeaten on the season against a couple EZAC teams from the gross lovely Albany metropolitan region.  Although in fairness, the ECAC is the ECAC was the second best women's college hockey conference in D1 before Hockey East and Brian Durocher's magical recruiting. 

The weekend started off with a little bit close for comfort win against RPI by a score of 3-2.  2 GA on 17 shots was a little more than we'd like to see get past Kerrin Sperry, but a real balanced attack provided goals from Sarah Lefort and Dakota Woodworth show that we will get great production from our freshmen this year, while Jenelle Kohanchuk represented for the upperclassmen with her own goal in the first.  With two assists each,  Jill Cardella and Kathryn Miller looked like players who will be creating for others quite regularly this season. 

As much as Friday might have shown a team shaking off some rust, the Terriers rebounded Saturday by absolutely crushing Union.   From the net out the Terriers shined, with Sperry only allowing a PPG on 8 shots in two periods of work and Alissa Fromkin putting in a great effort with the game out of hand in the third, only allowing a 5-on-3 PPG despite facing 12 shots in the period.  Again the Terriers showed a very balanced attack, Lefort scoring two more goals as the heir apparent to graduated Jenn Wakefield to go with two from Kayla Tutino and one each from Isabel Menard and Dakota Woodworth.  As the Terrier offense seems to developing into a very lethal weapon, Durocher and Co. can only be excited.  If a team manages to pot 6 goals without needing any from the best player in the country, they can beat any team, any night.  Terrier Nation, be excited about this team.  Anyone with a sports pass who doesn't become a regular at these games is making a huge mistake.
