After breaking the program winning streak record earlier this week, the Boston College women’s lacrosse team is looking to improve to 12-0 with a win over #5 UNC today. This will be a tough matchup for #2 BC, who dropped a pair of close games to the Tar Heels last season. The Eagles certainly can win this game, but expect it to be a battle on both sides. On BC’s end, the Eagles are going to have to make sure to keep defense and goaltending tight and consistent if they want to win.
