Siena, however, responded with a 14-2 run spanning both halves to secure its first victory of the season. The Saints held a 10-7 advantage after 30 minutes of action before pulling away by scoring eight of the next nine markers.
A season-high seven different Bearcats found the scoresheet led by senior Heather Grose's (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) three-goal, two-assist effort. BU received three points apiece from seniors Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) and Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and sophomore Julia Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.).
