This afternoon both the Boston College men's and women's club lacrosse teams will compete to fight cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. The women's team faces Northeastern at 5 PM and the men will face Pittsburgh immediately after (~ 7 PM).
Both games will be played at Alumni Stadium with all donations going toward the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), two leading charities in the fight against CF. A suggested $5 donation at the gate gets you a CF wristband and a great afternoon of BC club lacrosse.
Wristbands and Team Boomer t-shirts will also be available in the stands in exchange for donations.
For the men's club team, this will be a matchup of two Top 20 teams as the 12th ranked Eagles (6-5) take on the 16th ranked Panthers (9-2). Boston College is coming off a 11-6 loss to the PCLL leading UConn Huskies, while Pitt took down 18th ranked Northeastern 10-6. BC has quality wins this season over Clemson (11-5), Florida State (8-7) and Michigan State (9-7).
More on the men's club can be found on the BC Men's Lacrosse website.
So head on out to Alumni Stadium this afternoon to support Eagles club lacrosse and a worthwhile cause. Go Eagles!
