Streaking Lady Skaters at Four and Seeking More

The Dartmouth women's hockey team has won its first four games and looks to extend that streak against an inferior Boston College team tomorrow at home. Dartmouth (4-0-0, 4-0-0 ECAC North) will be skating with extra intensity after a clutch win over Harvard last Saturday complemented its solid win over Brown the night before.

Boston College (1-6-0, 0-6-0 ECAC East) has experience against quality teams this year, but no success. Its lone win came at the expense of the 0-9-0 Vermont Catamounts, the joke of the ECAC.

The Eagles sit at the bottom of the ECAC East and it is unlikely that the team will begin a climb out of that hole against Dartmouth.

"We're very excited to play this weekend. We didn't play as well as we would have liked last weekend, so we want to build on that and get stronger," said Carly Haggard '03.

While Harvard somehow managed to shut Haggard down, do not expect the same from the Eagles' defense. Haggard scored four points in each of the first three games, and she could easily exceed that mark against BC. The puck drops at Thompson Arena tomorrow at 4 p.m.
