Boston College Women’s Hockey Falls to Clarkson in NCAA Tournament


While one Boston College hockey team found a way to win on Saturday afternoon, another saw its chance at a national championship end.

In Potsdam, New York, the 6-seed Eagles lost to the 3-seed Clarkson Golden Knights, 3-1, in their NCAA Tournament quarterfinal game. The host team Clarkson will be on to the Frozen Four in Connecticut while Boston College will not be in the Frozen Four for the first time in four years.

The Eagles finish their season with a record of 27-7-3.

Clarkson scored the first three goals of the game — one in the first, one in the second, and one in the third. Boston College would get on the board with less than four minutes to go in the final period, thanks to a power play goal from Dana Trivigno.

Shots on goal were 32-24 in favor of Clarkson.

This was a disappointing end to a very strong season from the Boston College ladies. Nevertheless, the Boston College community is proud of them for their achievements and for a good year.
