UNH Women's Lax Routs Boston College, 20-10

DURHAM, N.H. -- Colleen Christopher (Newington, N.H.) netted six goals and Jessie Groszkowski (Reistertown, Md.), Stephanie Keefe (Newton, Mass.) and Hilary Maynes (Freeport, Maine) each scored three times as the University of New Hampshire women's lacrosse team routed Boston College, 20-10, Thursday afternoon at Memorial Field.

After falling behind 3-1, Boston College (4-10) rallied to take a 4-3 lead on tallies by Honor Crowther, Chrissie DeMichele and Lauren Miller. UNH starting goalkeeper Amanda Warren (Amherst, N.H.) was pulled in favor of Danielle Martin (Ellicott City, Md.) at that point - 18:32 remained in the first half. New Hampshire (6-7) responded by scoring the next seven goals to build a 10-4 advantage, and the visitors never trimmed the deficit below five goals the rest of the way.

Martin, who held the Eagles scoreless for 16:37 before yielding a goal, finished with 12 saves. Warren was not credited with a save. BC's Valerie Leuchs stopped seven shots.

Christopher, who set career highs in both goals and points (seven), opened the game's scoring at 24:25. She potted a pair of goals during UNH's seven-goal spurt and capped the first-half scoring with 10 seconds on the clock to give the 'Cats an 11-5 halftime lead.

New Hampshire's other goal scorers were Sue Yund (Castleton, N.Y.; two), Meagan Clavin (Hanover, N.H.), Kim Keefe (Newton, Mass.) and Megan Mangano (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.). Both Groszkowski and Maynes set career-highs with a three-goal effort.

BC was led by Miller's three goals. Crowther and DeMichele each netted a pair of goals, and Emily Ryan recorded three assists.

UNH returns to action April 24 at 10th-ranked Boston University. The Wildcats play their home finale April 28 against Hofstra University. Game time at Memorial Field is 3:30 p.m.
