By the lofty standards the program has set in recent years, the Boston College women's lacrosse team is off to a bit of a tough start this season, with an 8-6 record and not currently in the national rankings picture. But yesterday against Dartmouth, sophomore Kenzie Kent had a day for the ages and served notice that she'll be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come on the turf as well as on the ice.
Kent, who rounded out BC women's hockey's stellar top line this season with Alex Carpenter and Haley Skarupa, scored 10 points in BC's 14-9 win over Dartmouth. Her 5 goals and 5 assists gave her the most points in a single game by a BC player since 2010, and the second-most all time, behind only an 11-point performance by Lauren Miller in 2001.
Due to her hockey duties, Kent has been limited to playing in just 5 of BC's 14 games this year, but in spite of this she's 3rd on the team with 9 goals. She also has 21 points - over 4 per game.
BC looks to build on their midweek performance on Saturday afternoon when they take on Virginia Tech in Newton.
