Although the Eagles have an overall winning record (8-4), they continue to struggle in the ACC. Following last weekend’s win over Louisville, BC fell to 1-3 in conference play with a 15-13 loss to UNC today.
The Eagles ended the first half in the lead after going up 6-4 on UNC, but BC was unable to keep the lead and ended up losing by 2 goals. Despite the loss, BC put up a great effort against a really good team. Only one team has scored more than 13 goals against UNC this season, and the Tar Heels have lost only once (to Maryland).
The Eagles were led by Kate Weeks, who scored 5 goals. Weeks has been one of BC’s most consistent players this season. Dempsey Arsenault also had a terrific game, matching her career high with a pair of goals. Sam Apuzzo led BC with 4 draw controls while goaltender Zoe Ochoa led the Eagles with 5 ground balls.
The Eagles return to action on Wednesday, starting off a 3 game homestand with a game against Yale.
