Boston came out on fire and generated a 4-0 lead fueled by Jenn Medjid (2g), Caitlynn Mossman (1g,1a), Cara Urbank (3g,2a) notching her 100th NCAA goal, and Cassidy Weeks (2g) and with 21:00 on the clock, Boston was in a groove.
:39 seconds later, Kelsey Huff set up Maddie McDaniel (1g,2a) to cut the lead to three. Urbank recorded her sixth of the young season and Charlotte North (4g,1a) added a power-play goal to make it 6-1. It was time for USC to step up and step up they did.
Sophia Donovan (1g), Mc Daniel setting up Ella Heaney (2g) followed by a beauty from Izzy McMahon (1g) closed the gap to 6-4. Urbank set up North for her 9th of the season to close the half with Boston holding the edge, 7-4.
The second half was more of the same. Urbank kicking it off with an unassisted tally to increase it to 8-4. Heaney countered six and a half minutes and the battle was in full force. Caitlyn Mossman helped out on North’s 10th of the early season and Annie Walsh (1g) put Boston in double digits and a five-goal lead, 10-5.
Madison Waters (1g) ended the uprising to make it a four-goal difference but Medjid countered. USC was not giving up and Katie Ramsay (1g) and Kelsey Huff (1g,1a) seemed to jumpstart a comeback.
Although all it did was poke the bear ad Boston blew it open when Belle Smith (1g), Cassidy Weeks (1g) converted a North pass, and North would get her fourth of the day to put the exclamation mark on the 14-8 final.
