Boston College Women's Lacrosse Falls To Northwestern In NCAAs

New, comment

The women's lacrosse team's season came to an end Saturday, as the Eagles were knocked out of the NCAA Tournament by the No. 2 Northwestern Wildcats 11-8. The Eagles were down by a score of 6-3 at half and couldn't overcome an early 4-0 deficit in the first half.

The Eagles got goals from Brittany Wilton (3), Kristin Igoe (2 goals, 1 assist), Brooke Blue, Sam Taylor and Katherine Caufield. BC goalie Sheila Serafino made 6 saves and fell to 12-7 on the season. 

Despite the loss in the NCAAs, the BC women had a great season, winning 12 games in a season for only the second time in program history and making its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Hat tip to coach Bowen Holden, who in 2006, took over a program that had gone 90-122 (.425) in its first 14 seasons of existence. Since taking the head coaching job at Boston College, Holden has gone 54-52 in six seasons on the Heights, including back-to-back 12 win seasons in the highly competitive ACC (i.e. where going 1-4 against a conference slate that includes North Carolina, Duke and defending National Champ Maryland can be considered an accomplishment).

Go Eagles!
