Boston University 4, Dartmouth 2

The Terriers scored four straight to start the game, and it proved to be too large of a deficit for the Big Green to overcome.

Kimberly Newell was outstanding between the pipes with a 42-save effort. | Box Score | Recap

RIT 3, Rensselaer 0

The Engineers could not complete the sweep and settled for the split instead after a shutout loss.

Horwood led the Engineers with five shots on goal in the contest. | Box Score | Recap

Providence 4, Brown 2

Maddie Woo scored twice for the Bears, but they came up just short against their crosstown rivals. After Woo scored to give Brown a 1-0 lead, the Friars tallied twice to go up 2-1.
