WORCESTER, Mass. — Joe Rooney scored two short-handed goals and Cory Schneider made 28 saves for his second straight shutout to help Boston College advance to the Frozen Four with a 5-0 victory over Boston University on Saturday night.

Rooney also had an assist for the Eagles (25-12-3), who will face Holy Cross or North Dakota in the national semifinals Thursday, April 6 in Milwaukee.

Matt Greene, Brian Boyle and Benn Ferriero also scored for Boston College, which also beat Miami (Ohio) 5-0 on Friday night in the Northeast Regional.

The game was the sixth meeting between Boston College and Boston University this season, with the Terriers winning four of them — including the Beanpot championship and the Hockey East tournament final. In the only previous NCAA Tournament game between the schools, the Terriers beat the Eagles 5-3 in the 1978 title game.

The loss ended the Terriers’ seven-game winning streak and 10-game unbeaten streak.
