Sam Apuzzo scored eight goals, Kenzie Kent had six assists, and BC used a dominant second half to erase all doubt against an overmatched Dartmouth side on Wednesday afternoon.
In Hanover, N.H., the Eagles rolled to straight-set victories over Lafayette, Siena, and Dartmouth, improving to a perfect 9-0 record on the year, surpassing the program’s win total for each of the past two seasons.
With six wins in six tries, the Eagles will look to pick up their third consecutive weekend sweep as they head to New Hampshire and play at the Dartmouth Invitational.

Ky Bowman jumpstarted a 23-4 run to kick off the second half, and BC pulled away from the Big Green, picking up its 10th non-conference win of the season—the team’s most in seven years.
After a six year hiatus, Courtney Sheary will return to the Hockey East. Once an established defenseman for New Hampshire, Sheary will now take over as an assistant for BC.
