Okay, here's my summation and I'll be as objective as I can possibly be:

Forwards - edge to Merchurst, a bit more in the way of speed and finesse. The Manitoba B's should be able to create some offense and get some good looks.

Defense - edge to Boston College, experience and size favor the maroon and gold

Goaltending - dead heat, I've seen both goalies play well, I've seen both goalies collapse miserably. If both come with their A games, this game might very well be won on an odd bounce.

Floor is open, other thoughts??

Will we be treated to live performances of the Eagle's fight song?

Always a treat, even if you ARE the opposition this weekend! ;)

Forwards - edge to Merchurst, a bit more in the way of speed and finesse.I'd give the Lakers a slight edge up front, but not in speed. BC has a lot of fast forwards, so the speed should offset.


Goaltending - dead heat, I've seen both goalies play well, I've seen both goalies collapse miserably.Have to give MC an edge in goal, because Pattenden has played in a lot more big games and games in general in her college career.

Nah, Miss Boyles has a World Championship gold medal...thus the edge!

Also, in case anyone is interested, the slogan for this game will be "Truck The Hurst." "****can The Gophers" worked pretty well in March. :)

With BC's refusal to take any Canadian's, I must, on that premise.................................call a split. :) Hoping for a Mercy sweep though. ;)

Didn't realize tomorrow's game is at 2. Maybe I'll try to show up, should be a good matchup.

GO BC! Based on a premise of my own design. :)

If it were a bet for money though...I wouldn't bet a BC sweep. Hurst seems to be gathering momentum save the most recent minor hiccup to a very good opponent.

Probably Dual, or at a minimum Americanized. Did she not play at Nobles ?.
