Late Northeastern rally ends Terriers’ season

In the Women’s Hockey East tournament semifinal, Northeastern, after being shut out for 56 minutes, scored twice to edge BU, 2-1, to move on to the title game while ending BU’s season.

After a scoreless first period, the Terriers took a 1-0 lead when first-team all-star Victoria Bach converted a goalmouth rebound with assists going to Mary Parker and Maddie Elia. That lead held up until NU’s Halle Silva scored at 16:14 of the final period, batting a puck out of the air past BU’s Victoria Hanson after the goalie made the initial save. A Terrier interference penalty at 18:39 gave the Huskies an opportunity to grab the lead, which they did 34 seconds later when Codie Cross’s shot from the point flew past a screened Hanson.

BU’s senior goalie, also a first-team all-star, had turned aside Northeastern’s first 33 shots, including 30 in the first two periods.

BU finishes the season with a 19-12-6 record and fails to reach the league championship game for the first time in six seasons.

Looking ahead

A day after scoring the game-winner for the U18s in the final seconds, 2018 (or 2019) recruit Joel Farabee tallied a natural hat trick and added a pair of assists in an 8-3 win against Waterloo. The left wing from Cicero, NY found the net three times in a 4:47 span of the second period, bringing team USA from a 3-2 deficit to a 5-3 lead. Farabee, who had 31points (18G, 13A) in 43 games for the U17s, has ten points in seven starts with the U18s. 2017 recruit David Farrance also had an assist for Team USA while 2017 recruit Shane Bowers had an assist for Waterloo.
