Woburn senior Kayla Smith hit a career milestone Saturday night by reaching a career total of 200 points as the Tanners' girls' hockey team routed Stoneham, 8-0,on the road.

Smith entered last night's game with 195 career points. A hat trick and two assists later, she's now the second Tanner to earn 200 points in her career, joining Colleen Sanborn, who graduated in 2005 with 284 points off 206 goals and 78 assists.

Smith's 200th point came on her 103d career goal. With 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the third period and her team up 7-0, the senior captain took a pass across the crease from linemate Ashley Moran and fired top-shelf, past the Stoneham netminder and straight into the record books.

Woburn coach Bob MacCurtain was thrilled to see his star player reach the plateau.

"It's a great accomplishment,both at an individual level and as an indication of being a part of a lot of really good teams with great players." he said.

Smith's five points propelled undefeated No. 1 Woburn to its 10th win of the season.
