Paul Carey’s second goal of the contest proved to be the winner, as No. 4 Boston College continued its dominance over Colgate, beating the Raiders yesterday, 6-5, at the Ledyard Hockey Classic in Hanover, N.H.

Freshman Bill Arnold snapped a 4-4 tie with an unassisted shorthanded goal, putting the Eagles (12-5-0) in front at 7:39 of the third period. Carey made it 6-4 seven minutes later, some necessary breathing room when Corbin McPherson scored for Colgate (3-13-1) with 8.3 seconds left.
