"The most important thing is that we got the win," Smith said. "We played a lot better than" Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Maple Shade.
Smith has 174 career goals. She will attempt to set the record in Friday's 3:45 p.m. home game against Riverside.
Smith is tied with Sharon Berney for the top spot in the national record book. Berney set the record in 1985, when she was known as Sharon Landau, for Rye Neck High School in Mamaroneck, N.Y.
Berney attended Wednesday's game and cheered Smith's efforts to set the record.
Smith, who has committed to the College of New Jersey, was surrounded by three or four Holy Cross players nearly every time she entered the scoring circle.
When Smith did get off a strong shot, Holy Cross goalie Tara Mason made the save.
"It seems like nobody wants to be the team that gives up the record," Smith said.
