After what felt like an endless 16 months away from game action, the BU hockey team has started the 2021 season with a 3-0 record and the first 3-0 start since 2017.
I am very happy with the team, head coach Sally Starr says. Getting points in every game you play is critical, and right now was at the top of the Patriot League ledger with nine points.
The Terriers are the only remaining team from the conferences, completing a trio of 2-1 wins over Holy Cross, Lafayette and Colgate since the season began in the first week of March.
Every game was close, says Starr. I am just thrilled with the ability of our teams to be ready to play, compete hard and get the results.
That preparation was tested in BU’s most recent game, when half of the team was unable to play due to COVID-19 isolation protocols. The Terriers were left with four seniors, a sophomore, six freshmen and no substitutes, but still managed to take a 2-1 win over Colgate on March 27.
That was definitely a huge win, says the coach. I’m just really proud of the way the seniors led the group and the freshmen got ready to compete and ready to play.
Now, with only two games left in the regular season, the Terriers say they’ll take every opportunity to play, especially after having to wait an extra semester before their season starts.
Everyone was eager to come back and play against a team that wasn’t together, Alexis Pettisani (Sargent21) says. It was really exciting to go out with everyone again.
Starr appreciates how well her team has come together this season, given the challenges posed by the pandemic. Creating those team dynamics and team chemistry has taken an extra effort, she says, and I’m really proud of the way our seniors and the entire team have created a great team culture.
Pettisani is on board with that. Our team has always been very close, and I think those relationships are something that we really value and make our team our team, she says.
With Kathryn Scheerer (ENG21) led the team with two goals and four points, 20 athletes have seen match action this season. Rebecca Janes (ENG22), Ellie McIntyre (CAS23), Liz Ryan (Pardee21), Casey Thompson (Questrom22), and Pettisani all cracked the score sheet as well.
Pettisani says creating more insults was a priority of the season. Last year we had a little trouble getting the ball into the back of the net. This season we’ve really developed a number of forwards to score great goals, she says.
Played just three games, BU is already halfway through a pandemic-forced conference-only abbreviated 2021 schedule. The Terriers have two more games before the playoffs begin, and Starr says the goal, as always, is to win the conference title and make it to the NCAA tournament.
As the season progresses, one acronym can sum up what the coach expects from her team:
Our core values are JIPS: play with joy, have integrity, play with passion and be selfless. This is a team that has really done that and is doing it every day.
The Terriers close the regular season with a two-game home score, starting with Holy Cross on Sunday, April 11 at 1:00 PM at New Balance Field, followed by Lehigh on April 18, also at 1:00 PM. The Patriot League playoffs begin on April 22 and are hosted by the best seed, currently BU. All games will be streamed live on ESPN + and can be followed via GoTerriers.com and @BUGameDay on Twitter.
