Boston College Women’s Lacrosse Preview: UMass and Brown

The Eagles play 2 home games this week!

Kathryn Riley, BC Interruption

After dominating both Holy Cross and Boston University last week, Boston College will take on #19 UMass and an unranked Brown team. Unsurprisingly, the Eagles have already shown themselves to be offensive powerhouses, but the team’s defensive also looks stronger than expected. Brown should be a fairly easy win for BC, but a win against UMass would help to solidify the Eagles’ status as a contender. The Eagles are farther into their season than both UMass and Brown, which is a definite advantage for BC.
