Dempsey Arsenault, Boston College

New Hampton, N.H., midfielder, junior

Arsenault scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lead the Eagles past previously unbeaten Stony Brook, 12-11, in Saturday’s NCAA quarterfinal. Although they led by three goals early, the Eagles never led in the second half and had to rally from three goals down with 15:59 left. Arsenault finished a feed from Sam Apuzzo 4:18 into the six-minute overtime to send the Eagles to the final four for the second straight year.

She led the Eagles in scoring with three goals and two assists and also had a game-high nine draw controls as Boston College dominated the draws, 20-6, against the Seawolves, who had been ranked No. 1 most of the season. She is second on the team in scoring with 59 goals and 34 assists and is also second in draw controls with 102. An All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, Arsenault was also named to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association All-Northeast region team.
