WE MUST PROTECT THIS HOUSE
The Bearcats have won three of their first four contests played at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The three home wins are tied for the most in the programs seven-year history. The 2004 squad finished with a 3-2 home mark.
SPREADING THE WEALTH
Three different players have scored at least 10 goals for the Bearcats this season. Leanne Musso leads the team with 12 goals, while Lisa Illig and Ali Castiglie have each added 11 scores. Castiglie has also added 12 assists for a team-best 23 points.

Musso has posted 96 points on 70 goals and 26 assists in her career, just four shy of 100 for her career. Current assistant coach Lauren Wetherell and former Bearcat Heather Grose 07 reached the 100-point mark in 2006 and 2007, respectively.

Against Siena, freshman Lisa Illig registered the second hat-trick of her collegiate career and the Bearcats received goals from 10 different players as team netted a season-high 15 goals.
BU overcame a 6-2 halftime deficit Sunday only to fall late at Canisius. Freshman Erica Hill scored a game-high three goals to help the Bearcats rally and tie the game at 7-all . The Golden Griffins, however, broke the tie with 11:04 left and capped the scoring about two minutes later.
Hill was one of four freshmen who accounted for all of BUs scoring and has five goals over the her last two games.
