The Boston University women’s soccer team won its fifth-straight game Sunday afternoon, defeating the University of Maine by a score of 4-2.
On paper, a 2-2 tie at home against St. Francis Xavier University is a disappointing way for the Boston University men’s hockey team to open its 2009-10 season. But as anyone who’s ever participated in an exhibition game will tell you, results aren’t the most important thing in the preseason – what actually happens in the game is.
Terrier Nation had a lot to look forward to Saturday night as the defending national champion Boston University men’s hockey team took the ice for the first time since toppling Miami University in the national title game in April.
The No. 10 Boston University women’s hockey team started the season this weekend with back-to-back games against Ohio State University. By the end of the weekend, the Terriers had no wins, no losses and two heart-wrenching ties to show for it.
Expectations are high for the No. 10 Boston University women’s hockey team. The Terriers, in their fifth season at the Division-I level, start the season with their highest ranking in program history ‘- No. 10 in the nation ‘- and predicted to finish third in Hockey East behind the No. 5 University of New Hampshire and No. 6 Boston College.
