Hanover — Ranked 19th in the nation, Boston College used a late run to secure a 16-9 win over the Dartmouth College women’s lacrosse team on Wednesday at Scully-Fahey Field.

The Big Green (5-6) dropped its second game against Boston College (11-5) in as many seasons after winning the first 19 meetings in the all-time series prior to last year’s defeat in Newton, Mass.

Taryn Deck and Elizabeth Mastrio led the Big Green with three goals each.

Deck also registered an assist for a team-high four-point game. Kierra Sweeney had a goal and one assist in the loss. Courtney Weisse and Sophia Turchetta netted one goal each.

BC got five goals from Sam Apuzzo and four from Laura Frankenfield. But the game’s star was the Eagles’ Kenzie Kent, who finished the game with three goals and six assists. Kate Weeks also kicked in a hat trick of her own and a pair of assists.

Deck and Sweeney scored the opening two goals of the second half to pull the home team even at 7-7. But Weeks scored twice 14 seconds apart with 21 minutes remaining in the second half to kick off the Eagles’ run that would put Dartmouth out of reach. BC scored seven of the final nine goals.

Big Green freshman goalkeeper Kiera Vrindten moved past 100 saves on the season with her 14 on Wednesday, while also picking up a game-high five ground balls. The visitors used two keepers in the game with each registering just one save in 30 minutes of action.

Dartmouth is back on the field on Saturday against No. 8 Cornell.

Castleton, Vt. — The Chargers snapped Castleton’s eight-game winning streak with a pair of road victories, improving to 10-8 this season (4-2 in conference).

Quechee native Justin Devoid opened up the scoring in the top of the fourth inning of game one on an RBI single from Brendan Thuber. Woodstock’s Doug Avellino added to the lead in the fifth thanks to a Castleton defensive miscue that allowed Avellino, attempting to steal third base, to score safely. Chris Mitchell went the distance for Colby-Sawyer, giving up one run on four hits. Mitchell also struck out five to earn his NAC-leading fourth win of the year. Castleton’s Davis Mikell suffered his first loss.

Avellino contributed offensively again in game two, opening the scoring in the fifth inning on an RBI groundout that sent the Woodstock native home from third. Michael Fazio threw the first five innings and scattered three hits to earn his second straight win for the Chargers.
