It’s safe to say that Saturday afternoon’s women’s lacrosse contest on Newton Campus was never in doubt.
The Boston College Eagles, powered by a 6-0 start to the game, downed cross-town rival Harvard 17-6 to improve to 4-0 on the season.
Sam Apuzzo and Kenzie Kent, as per tradition, stood out in the win. Apuzzo contributed four goals in the effort and Kent, while only scoring one goal for herself, assisted six others in the game.
Across the way, the Crimson spoiled a three goal effort by Caroline Garrity. Katie Muldoon, Hannah Keating and Madison Conklin also contributed goals for the Crimson.
The Harvard game was a tune-up preceding a long, arduous stretch for the Eagles. The next five games for the Eagles are against ranked opponents, three of which are games on the road. The Eagles will play No. 25 Dartmouth in Hanover, N.H. on Feb. 26, and then will return home to play Southern California in Newton on March 1.
