Eagles Fly Past Iona to Move Record to 8-3

The Boston College lacrosse team topped Iona College, 19-5 on Wednesday afternoon in Newton, Mass. The Eagles improve to 8-3 on the season, while Iona falls to 4-7.

Boston College got on the board first with scores by junior Kristin Igoe and senior Peyton Killeen, with senior Lauren Costello adding an assist on each goal. After an Iona goal cut the Eagles' lead to just one, BC's offense took over the game, notching eight straight tallies to take the game into halftime with the Eagles leading 10-1. Igoe scored two and Costello added one in addition to one each by juniors Jill Amo and Hannah Alley, sophomores Sam Taylor and Brittany Wilton and freshman Brooke Blue.

The Eagles opened the second half with strong play, scoring the first four goals of the half by the 25:18 mark, thanks to three more scores by Wilton and one by Blue. The Eagles and the Gaels would trade off the next six goals with Blue, Igoe and Wilton scoring once again. Killeen added one more at 9:29 of the half and senior Suzanne Cannon also put one in the back of the net at the 0:17 mark of the half. The score finished at 19-5.

Junior goalie Sheila Serafino made three saves in net for the Eagles with sophomore Catherine Conway earning just over five minutes between the pipes as well. The Eagles outshot the Gaels, 28-13 on the day.

Costello also set a new record for the Eagles by notching nine assists on the afternoon, topping the previous record of six which was achieved on three separate occasions before.

Boston College will travel to face Duke in its next contest, this Saturday, April 10 at 1:00 p.m. in Durham, N.C.
