Terrier Women eliminated by Minnesota

BU hung in with top seed Minnesota for two periods, but finally buckled under a Gopher onslaught in the final period and dropped a 5-1 decision in the NCAA quarterfinals.

BU, in its ninth varsity season, was making its fifth consecutive NCAA appearance, visiting Minnesota at Ridder Arena. The hosts scored midway through the first period, but 21 seconds later, Sarah Lefort, the nation’s top goal-scorer, ripped her 32nd off the goalie’s shoulder following a pass from Lilian Braga.  The Gophers went back on top in the second period, thanks to two BU penalties. In the third period, Minnesota tallied three more times, with Kelly Terry completing a hat trick, for the win.

Looking forward
2015 recruit Jordan Greenway scored a goal and added an assist for the NTDP U17s, who were outscored by Lincoln, 7-3. The 6-4 left wing from Potsdam, N.Y., is fifth on the U17s in scoring with a 14-21-35 scoring line.

2015 recruit Maxim Letunov’s 16th goal of the season was the only score that Youngstown could muster in a 2-1 loss to Muskegon.  The 6-2 center from Moscow has 38 points for the Phantoms.
