The Boston University women’s hockey team opened its 2010 schedule with a 4-1 win over Yale University on Friday and a 5-5 tie with Brown University on Sunday.
Senior forward Melissa Anderson took over this weekend, tallying six points in two games. On Friday against Yale (4-10-3), Anderson opened the scoring for BU (8-6-8) on its first power play of the game, converting on a feed from her linemate, senior Laurel Koller. Koller had a career-high three assists in the game.
A first-period goal gives BU the initial lead and caps an impressive eight-month stretch for the Marshfield native.
With all the hoopla surrounding Friday night’s showdown between Boston University and No. 7/8 Boston College at Fenway Park, it might be difficult to remember that there is something more important than bragging rights on the line ‘-’- two points in the Hockey East standings.
The Boston University men’s hockey team entered Saturday’s contest with the No. 15 University of Massachusetts with a disastrous 4-9-3 start to their season in the rearview mirror. By game’s end, the Terriers were driving full speed to a turnaround for their season, knocking off the Minutemen 7-3 at Agganis Arena.
