BU Holds off U-18 Rally; Notches 6-4 Victory at Agganis UPDATED

The 13th/14th ranked Boston University Terriers got their toughest test of the young season but continued their winning ways as they defeated the US NTDP U-18 Team 6-4 at Agganis Arena on Saturday night.  Freshman Jack Eichel and junior Danny O'Regan (photo) led the Terriers with three points apiece; while newly converted forward and third member of the "OREO" line, Ahti Oksanen, contributed the game-winning goal and an assist. Freshman goaltender Connor LaCouvee stopped 20 of 24 USA shots.  Future Terrier Charlie McAvoy assisted on the US NTDP's first goal and quarterbacked a power play unit that converted on 50% of their chances. 

The Terriers will play their first regular season home games next weekend against Michigan State and Michigan.

Looking Ahead
2016 recruit Vas Kolias (photo) scored a goal (on a one-timer) for Youngstown--his first in the USHL--as the Phantoms defeated Dubuque 6-0 in USHL play on Saturday night.

2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter assisted on an overtime goal to give Sioux City a 2-1 win over Waterloo.

2015 recruit Jacob Forsbacka-Karlsson's (photo) assist helped Omaha even the score against Bloomington midway through the second period.  His Lancers came up short though, bowing to Bloomington in a 4-3 shootout loss.

2016 recruit Clayton Keller scored a goal early in the second period that tied up the game; but his  NTDP U-17 team was defeated by Des Moines, 5-3.

Women's Team
Senior Captain Marie-Philip Poulin scored the first and last of BU's five goals, and junior left wing Sarah Lefort assisted on both of those tallies, as the sixth ranked Terriers defeated the seventh ranked Clarkson Golden Knights by a 5-2 score. Poulin added an assist for a game-high three point performance and fourth-line center Jordan Juron assisted on freshman Victoria Bach's game-winning goal.  Juron also scored BU's fourth goal of the game on a backhander from Poulin and sophomore Samantha Sutherland

Eleven Terriers got on the scoring sheet this afternoon in Potsdam, New York.  Freshman goaltender Erin O'Neil, who stopped 21 of 23 shots, earned the first win of her collegiate career and, in so doing, helped the Terriers sweep the defending NCAA champions.  The BU women will continue their road trip next weekend, as they travel to Orono for a two-game set against the University of Maine Black Bears. recap and comprehensive box score
