The Terriers outshot the Bears 20-5 at the end of the first 20 minutes.
Three-quarters of the second period remained goalless. Then, with five and a half minutes remaining, Terrier co-captain Sammy Davis gave BU their first lead of the night (2-1), assisted by Jesse Compher (Davis’ eighth goal of the season). The Terriers outshot the Bears 9-6 in the second period.
In the third period, Hanson netted her second goal of the game (and ninth of the season) a few minutes before the halfway point, tying the score again (2-2). The Terriers then went on a scoring frenzy, adding three goals in a span of six minutes. Co-captain Reagan Rust found the back of the net 11 minutes in, assisted by Courtney Correia and Emma Wuthrich. Nara Elia followed up with two and a half minutes left in the game, assisted by Kristina Schuler. Finally, Mackenna Parker’s empty-netter (assisted by Davis and Galway) sealed the deal.
The Terriers took a 5-2 win back to Boston. They outshot the Bears 13-6 in the final period, and 42-17 in total.
