Women's Ice Hockey Suffers Disappointing Loss to BU

By Gara Mendez

The women's ice hockey team met Boston University Saturday afternoon at the Johnson Athletics Center. The game ended 21 in favor of BU.

The game was discouraging to the Engineers since they were counting on a victory.

In the starting defensive line-up were Gina Ferrante '98, Aradhara Narula G, and Cynara Wu G. They were quick and within the first minute they had a goal. Ferrante took the shot, but it was stopped by the BU goalie. Narula took the rebound and scored.

The rest of the game did not turn out to be as good for MIT.

At the end of the second period, BU tied the game.

The Engineer's defensive line up was strong and worked not to let the BU players past them. However there was one penalty that hurt the team.

BU scored the winning goal on a power play in the beginning of the third period.

The team hopes to do better in its next game against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute tomorrow.
