After dropping a winnable game against Virginia Tech last week, BC women’s lacrosse returned to their winning ways against UConn this afternoon. The Eagles defeated UConn by a score of 14-11 and moved to 4-0 in non-conference play and 4-2 overall.
UConn started strong, scoring 2 goals in the first minute of the game, but goals from Sam Apuzzo and Kate Weeks earned BC the lead by the mid-point of the first half. Apuzzo scored 5 goals in the first half, but BC went into the second down by 1.
The Huskies held BC scoreless for the first 15 minutes of the second half and scored 2 goals of their own in that time. Weeks scored BC’s first goal of the half at 15:28, starting a 4-0 run that earned BC a 10-9 lead. BC retained the lead for the remainder of the game, ultimately winning 14-11.
The Eagles were led by Sam Apuzzo, who had 5 goals and 7 points, and Kate Weeks who scored 3 goals for her fourth hat trick of the season. Senior Kayla O' Connor set a career high with 2 goals and 2 assists in the game, and sophomore Dempsey Aresenault caused a career high 4 turnovers.
The Eagles return to BC on Saturday to play Harvard at 1 PM.
