Jordan Lappin and Cara Urbank each added 2 goals to BC’s total, and Jenn Medjid, Maggie Casey, and Courtney Weeks each scored once for the Eagles. And while Sheila Rietano didn’t get the ball into the net, she help out the offense with a pair of assists.
On defense, Elizabeth Miller held things down as usual, while Taylor Walker led the team with a pair of caused turnovers. Abbey Ngai got the start in net again and improved her season save percentage to .500.
The Eagles return to action this Saturday at noon as they head to #3 UNC for their second ACC match of the season.
