Women’s Beanpot
Terriers dropped a heartbreaker in the Beanpot Championship game on Tuesday, losing to #3 BC in overtime, 4-3.  BU had overcome a 2-0 first period deficit and held a 3-2 lead late in the third on goals by seniors Victoria Bach and Rebecca Leslie and junior Reagan Rust. But with just over four minutes left in regulation, the Eagles Darryl Watts, the nation’s leading goal scorer, tied the score with her second tally of the night. The teams would play nearly 15 minutes of overtime before Toni Ann Miano would pot the game-winner on a power play.

Bach’s goal early in the second, assisted by Rust, was her 35th of the season and the program record-extending 100th of her BU career. Less than a minute later, Rust made the score 2-2 with her fifth goal, assisted by Abbey Stanley and Nara Elia. Then Leslie (19th) gave BU the lead with assists from Bach and Breanna Scarpaci.

Freshman goalie Corinne Schroeder stopped 30 Eagle shots.

Yesterday, the U.S. dropped a 6-2 decision to the Czech Republic. Farabee’s first period goal had tied the score at 1-1 and Jack DeBoer’s shot was redirected home by Erik Middendorf in the second to cut the lead to 3-2.
