UVM women’s hockey gears up for Boston College


The Vermont women’s hockey team is preparing for a slate of games against Boston College this weekend. UVM will close out the regular season series with the 10th-ranked team at Gutterson Fieldhouse. The Catamounts are coming off of a handful of 5-4 wins over two strong teams, Merrimack and Providence. 

Sophomore forward Kristina Shanahan shared how the Catamounts are preparing for Boston College. 

“When we score in the first period we give ourselves a huge boost of confidence, that will be huge against a team like BC. I think we’re all really excited for the challenge. This team really thrives on challenges and, we really step up our game in these opportunities” said Kristina Shanahan, UVM sophomore forward. 

Head Coach Jim Plumer explains that if UVM scores early on, the confidence can be built up. 

“At both ends of the ice all of us have more confidence than we’ve had in the past, but, at the end of the day you have to get off to a good start to give yourself a good chance” said Jim Plumer, UVM Head Coach at a press conference this week. 

The two-game series begins Friday (Jan. 18) at 7 p.m. and ends Saturday (Jan. 19) at 4 p.m.
