BOSTON — The game was the first NCAA tournament game hosted by the Boston University women’s hockey team in their six-year history. A win would take them to their first appearance in the Frozen Four. They faced a familiar foe; last season, the Mercyhurst Lakers were the ones who knocked them out of the NCAA quarterfinal.
Not this year.
The Boston University Terriers will go on to face the Cornell Big Red in the Frozen Four of the NCAA Women’s Hockey Tournament after defeating the Mercyhurst College Lakers, 4–2, at Walter Brown Arena in Boston, Mass. on Saturday in front of a crown of 718.
“It’s so nice; last year, no one thought we had a chance and they didn’t think we had a chance this year. It feels so nice,” said sophomore forward Jill Cardella.
