History[edit | edit source]

A practice from the inaugural BU season. Gina Kearns, center, and Erin Seman, right, were two of five players who received full hockey scholarships in the first season.

Caroline Boudreau scored the first goal in BU program history. This was accomplished against Northeastern on Oct. 7, 2005. [1] In the same game, Gina Kearns scored the first shorthanded goal in Terriers history.[2]

On March 8, 2010, sophomore Tara Watchorn scored at 9:52 in overtime as the Number 3 seeded Terriers triumphed over No. 5 seed Connecticut Huskies women's ice hockey program. The game was played at at Schneider Arena on the Providence College campus. The Terriers clinched their first ever Hockey East Tournament title and earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament. It was Watchorn’s second goal of the season. The 2010 Hockey East Tournament Championship game was the first ever to go into overtime in the eight-year history of the league. [3]
