Now 10-2 on the year.

On Sunday afternoon, the ninth-ranked Boston College field hockey team notched its second victory of the season over a Top 5 opponent, downing UConn, 4-3, in overtime. Junior midfielder Emma Plasteras scored the OT goal in the 81st minute; her third on the day.

With the victory, the Eagles improve to 10-2 on the year. UConn falls to 10-1.

"This was a fantastic team win over a very talented Connecticut team," head coach Ainslee Lamb said. "The BC players worked extremely hard to win - both on tactical and emotional side of the game. I was most impressed by the team's ability to rebound from goals against us and, in fact, elevate their play to fight their way back into the game. This game demonstrated tremendous character by the entire group and exemplifies our motto of `XXVStrong!'"

Back on September 20, the then 17th-ranked Eagles defeated previously-unbeaten No. 5 Syracuse, 6-3, at home to open ACC play. With six regular season games remaining, Boston College has already matched the win total from the previous year.

The Eagles two losses this season have come to then-14th ranked UMass (4-2) and then-2nd ranked Maryland (4-3).

The gauntlet that is the ACC field hockey regular season continues as the Eagles travel to Charlottesville to take on 4th-ranked Virginia on Friday, October 11. All four of Boston College's remaining ACC games are against programs currently ranked in the top 14 in the nation.
