After a solid season in which they tied their best ACC record (3-3) and had multiple players receive ACC honors, the BC field hockey team ended their year with a 1st round NCAA Tournament loss to UConn.
The Eagles gave UConn a run for their money earlier this season, losing to the Huskies in a 4-3 OT game. BC had a tougher time with Connecticut today, getting shutout and losing 5-0.
The Huskies came into today's game ranked #6 and the Eagles #11. The game went into the 2nd half with UConn leading by only 2 goals, but BC struggled significantly in the second half. The Eagles were unable to get a shot on net in the second, and UConn added three more goals for a final score of 5-0. UConn ultimately outshot BC 20-3.
Audra Hampsch made a career high 10 saves for the Eagles in goal, while Emily and Eryn McCoy set a BC record, having each played in 5 NCAA Tournament games. This year's senior class is the first in BC field hockey history to advance to the NCAA Tournament all 4 years.
The Eagles will graduate some core players this year, but have many exciting younger players returning including Lucy Lytle, who was the 2nd highest scorer on this year's team, and Frederique Haverhals and Ymke Rose Gote, who were both named to the second team All-ACC this season.
