Stengel breaks Demon Deacons' scoring record

[WAKE FOREST-BOSTON COLLEGE] Playing only her third game since returning from the Under-20 Women's World Cup, where she started for the USA in its 1-0 win over Germany in the final, Katie Stengel scored both goals to give No. 22 Wake Forest a 2-0 win over No. 11 Boston College 2-0 on Thursday at Spry Stadium and broke the Demon Deacons' all-time goals and points records.

Stengel tallied the 37th and 38th goals to jump past Jill Hutchinson (36 goals) and has 89 points in her career, topping Sarah Kozey (86 points) on the school’s scoring charts.

“I think it just says a lot about how good our team is,” said Stengel. “The balls that Jackie [Logue] and Ally [Berry] played to me were perfect. Without these great players around me, I wouldn’t be able to do this.”

The Demon Deacons (8-2-1, 2-1-0 ACC) handed Boston College (7-1-2, 1-1-0 ACC) their first loss of the year and were the first team to shut out high-scoring Eagles, who came into the match averaging 3.44 goals per game.

“We wanted to control the tempo of the game and get it down to a reasonable level,” said Wake coach Tony da Luz. “I thought the back four and Aubrey [Bledsoe] were excellent tonight. They did a really great job.”
