After losing a tough 6-0 game to Syracuse earlier this week, the Boston College field hockey team shut out Providence by a score of 4-0 earlier today. The Eagles improved to 5-1 overall with the win.
Sarah Dwyer earned her first shutout of the season against the Friars, a much needed confidence boost for the BC goalie. On the offensive side of things, BC dominated with 18 shots on goal compared to Providence’s 2.
Elizabeth Warner started off the scoring 18 minutes into the first half, stealing the ball from a Providence defender and sending it into the back off the net. The Eagles would not score again until the second half, when they picked up 3 goals - each 10 minutes after the next. Freshman Cassidy Atchison scored the first goal of the half off of a rebound. Ten minutes later, Brooke Matherson took a great pass from Caroline McGovern to make the score 3-0. Warner closed out the scoring with her second goal of the game, this time tipping the ball into the next to give BC a 4-0 victory.
The Eagles will look to pick up their first ACC victory of the year this Saturday when they head to Durham to face UNC.
