Four goals in sweep carry BC's Delaney Belinskas to Player of the Week
Buoyed by the ASN Player of the Week Delaney Belinskas of BC is leading the conference, looking like national title contenders.
Belinskas, a freshman from Port Orange, Fla., tallied four goals in a weekend sweep over New Hampshire, including three in a 7-1 rout Saturday. She now has one hat trick and a four-goal game (against Maine) and 11 goals on the season. More importantly, her scoring prowess has helped BC overcome the graduation loss of Alex Carpenter and Haley Skarupa, who rank 1-2 in most career scoring records for the storied program.
BC sit at 9-3-2 overall and 8-2-0 in Hockey East play heading into a showdown this weekend against Northeastern. The Eagles were ranked fourth in last week’s USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll and sixth in the USCHO poll.
