The Roslindale, Massachuestts native tied for second in the nation in scoring this week as BC topped No. 9 Providence 7-4 on Friday and then immediately turned around and went on the road and beat Syracuse 4-3 on Saturday. She had five points - 3 goals, 2 assists - in the 2-0-0 week. On Friday against the Friars, the sophomore forward notched a three-point day with two goals and one assist.
