Non-Revenue Update: Women’s Hockey Rolls Along


Senior captain Mary Restuccia was already having a good week before Tuesday night. After all, she had just been named Hockey East’s Player of the Week for her four-point weekend, but against New Hampshire, she added two more. This gave her 100 points for her career, making her just the eighth women’s hockey player to accomplish the feat at Boston College.

As for the team at large, the #4 women’s hockey Eagles beat the Wildcats, 4-2, at home. BC scored three goals in the second period to power their way past New Hampshire, and with the win, they are tied atop Hockey East with Northeastern (both teams have 17 points).

The ladies’ next game is on Saturday night at Vermont as they play another conference game, this time against the Catamounts. It will be their first of three meetings this year.

Recently, Boston College men’s track and field got back into action, competing in the Dartmouth Relays in Hanover, NH. As a team, they finished fifth out of eight schools (and looking at the results for individual events, it would seem Quebecois interests were well-represented).

BC did not win any events, but had two third-place finishes behind Louis Serafini (1-mile run; Collin Fedor finished fifth) and Jordan Hamm (3000-meter run; Richard Lucas came in sixth).

Their next competition is in about a week, and they won’t have to go far: it’s at BU.

On Sunday, Boston College women’s basketball took to the court against Wake Forest in an ACC contest, but fell on the road, 72-58. Kristen Doherty managed 24 points, a career high, in the effort, but the team committed a great deal of turnovers and buried themselves early.

It would seem misery truly does love company, and our men’s basketball team has some. While the men are busy turning the ball over at an appalling rate, the women committed 25 turnovers in their loss to Wake. In a further coincidence, both the men’s and women’s basketball teams are now 5-10 on the season.

The ladies return to action on Thursday on the road at NC State.

In addition to men’s basketball, men’s hockey, women’s basketball, and women’s hockey playing games at some point this week, other BC teams doing their thing will include the ski team, men’s & women’s swimming, and women’s track.
