Amherst Crushes BU, 11-2

AMHERST, Massachusetts -- Gretchen Bowe (Hampstead, NH) had five goals and three assists to lead Amherst to an 11-2 thrashing of Boston University at Orr Rink. The rookie breaks records for most goals and most points in a single game with this career performance.

The Jeffs had taken a 1-0 lead into the first intermission before the Terriers netted a pair of early goals to take a 2-1 lead off the sticks of Meg Nakahara (River Edge, NJ) and Patricia Tarabelsi (Belmont, MA). But Amherst responded with six goals in the second period, and the Jeffs tallied four more in the closing stanza for the final.

Terrier keeper Christina Connelly (Boston, MA) made 57 saves in net as the Jeffs took a record 71 shots on goal. Senior co-captain Jess Frisch (Bethesda, MD) added two goals and four assists to the Lord Jeff effort.

Amherst improves to 6-4-1 as the Jeffs prepare for their second meeting with Williams on Friday at Orr Rink. The archrivals battled to a 3-3 overtime tie in Williamstown on the 21st. Boston University falls to 4-3-1 for the season.
