Possibly the biggest achievement in Chestnut Hill was senior goalie Leah Settipane breaking the school record for wins with her 42nd career win. The four year goalie was destined to own the record when she entered her senior season just 6 wins short of tying the record. She tied the record 2 weeks ago with the team's 2OT victory over Liberty. On Sunday, Settipane finally broke through and took over the record. With 5 regular season games and the ACC tournament, we will see how high she can extend her mark on the program.

Friday vs. #4 Duke

The Eagles suffered a heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to #4 Duke at the Newton FH Complex on Friday. BC controlled play throughout a scoreless first half where they outshot Duke 7-3. Unfortunately, they were unable to convert these chances into goals and the teams entered the half tied 0-0. Early in the second half, Emily McCoy set up Eryn McCoy for a quick goal to take a 1-0 lead. This lead held for 6 minutes before Duke's Amanda Kim scored off a rebound to tie up the game. The Eagles kept pushing and hoped to take back the lead, but Duke dashed their hopes with a quick goal in the 55th minute. Despite outshooting Duke 10-5 in the second half, the Eagles were unable to tie up the game and the 2-1 score line held.

Sunday vs. New Hampshire

The big story on Sunday came from Leah Settipane's 42nd win. She earned it with a 4-2 win over New Hampshire were the Eagles scored 2 goals in the first half. Eryn McCoy scored both first half goals, with the second coming right before the half. She now has 4 goals this season to go along with her 2 assists. In the second half, BC kept the scoring rolling with senior Kelcie Hromisin increasing the lead to 3-0. BC gave up 2 goals in the second half, but were able to finish up New Hampshire by a score of 4-2 in a game that was never truly close. With the win, Settipane took sole possession of the wins record and will no doubt hold it for a while.

Next up for the Eagles is a Friday clash against Louisville in Newton.
