Despite taking an early lead over Natre Dame today, the Eagles ended up losing in the first round of the ACC Tournament by a final score of 9-5.

BC scored twice in the first inning to take a 2-0 lead. Notre Dame tied things up in the third, but BC scored three more runs to take a 5-2 lead. Heading into the seventh and final regulation inning, BC held a 5-3 lead, but Notre Dame scored twice to send the game to extra innings.

Pitcher Jessica Dreswick was visibly tired by the eighth inning, and allowed 4 runs to give Notre Dame a 9-5 lead. Jordan Weed came in to relieve Dreswick with 1 out after the 9th run scored, and got out of the inning unscathed.

The Eagles started the bottom of the eighth with a single, but quickly hit into a double play. BC then hit a fly ball to end the game and any hopes of an ACC title.
