McGilloway broke the scoreless drought, scoring an unassisted goal with 7:42 left in the half, and BC added two more from Maura Mahoney to hold a 6-2 lead at halftime.
The Eagles came out of the break and quickly went up, 7-2, as Jenna McCabe scored just 1:29 into the half. The two teams then traded goals for the next five minutes with senior Kelly Robinson (Marlton, NJ) and McGilloway each scoring for the Bears
Following McGilloway's goal 6:36 into the half, which made it 8-4 in favor of BC, the Eagles went on a four-goal run, capping it with 9:56 remaining, to take a 12-4 lead and put the game out of reach.
Robinson halted the run with her second of the game with 5:26 on the clock and Collins added her second with 2:55 remaining for the 13-5 final.
