BC's Apuzzo scores nine times in rematch against Navy

College Lacrosse | Top Five Plays

NEWTON, Mass. – Junior Sam Apuzzo netted nine goals — breaking the Boston College lacrosse program record for goals scored in a single game — Tuesday as the No. 6 Eagles defeated No. 11 Navy  20-14 at home in a rematch of last year's national semifinal game.

While the Midshipmen (3-1, 0-0) held the lead for a good portion of the first half, Apuzzo's fourth goal of the day sparked a 7-0 run for the Eagles (6-0, 1-0) to take the lead. Coming out of the half, Navy kept it a close game, scoring six second-half goals to BC's eight, but the Eagles held on in their third 20-point game of the season.

Junior goalkeeper Lauren Daly secured nine saves on the game, matching her career high.
