After losing a plethora of talent, including two Olympians and a trio of elite forwards, head coach Katie Crowley and the Eagles are aiming to overcome lower expectations ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
A dual-sport athlete her first three years at BC, graduate student Kenzie Kent is now solely focused on the sport of lacrosse, but her goal remains the same: to bring home a national title.
Behind two goals from Erin Connolly and an overtime game-winner from Ryan Little, the Eagles punched their ticket to the Hockey East semifinals for the ninth year in a row.
Makenna Newkirk picked up three assists, Megan Keller scored, and the Eagles beat Maine 5-2 on senior day Friday afternoon. BC has now won four straight games.
Megan Keller got the scoring started just five minutes into the contest, Daryl Watts added two goals and BC women’s hockey never trailed in a 4-1 win over Northeastern Tuesday.
Daryl Watts and Lindsay Agnew both found the net for the Eagles, but BC simply couldn’t overcome seven different penalties and dropped a tough 3-2 decision to New Hampshire Saturday.
The Eagles have won the last five regular season titles, but a white-hot Northeastern side and an uncharacteristic season from Katie Crowley’s bunch has BC looking up at the holiday break.
Megan Keller and Makenna Newkirk both recorded their 100th assists at BC, Kelley Browne scored twice, and the outcome was never in doubt against the Crusaders.
