Given the length of the page you have already, I would insert a forced 
page break in place of \\ before the entry that is split undesirably. I 
can't say how you di that in LaTeX, because I don't know what 
quasi-primitive commands are allowed.

Automating that is likely to be more difficult.  You would need to get 
an accurate reading on \pagesofar, or to limit breaks after \\ except on 
blank lines.  I am lazy about such things.  Once I have otherwise stable 
paging, I just go in and insert the needed break.
