Yesterday, the Boston College women’s lacrosse team played in the Final Four for the first time in program history. Tomorrow, the team will be the first non-hockey BC team to compete in an NCAA championship game. The Eagles earned are heading to the finals thanks to a 16-15 come-from-behind victory against Navy.

Kenzie Kent, who led BC with 5 goals, started off the scoring to give BC an early 1-0 lead. Despite a good start, the Eagles struggled with possession in the first half. Kenzie Kent scored with 8 seconds remaining in the half, but BC still went into the second half down 9-6.

Luckily for the Eagles, they have excelled in the second period all year and started the period with 5 unanswered goals. Navy crept within one goal, but was unable to make a comeback, thanks in no small part to a couple of stellar saves by Lauren Daly.

Kent was the biggest offensive presence for BC on Friday, but Sam Apuzzo (2 G, 2 A), Kaileen Hart (2 G, 1 A), Kate Weeks (2 G, 3 A), and Kayla O’Connor (2 G, 4 GB) all made a big impact as well.

Tomorrow at 11 AM, BC will face an undefeated Maryland team in the 2017 NCAA Championship. Tickets can be purchased here.

Go Eagles!
