A stressful first half led to a completely dominant second half for the Boston College women’s lacrosse teams today, as they defeated BU by a score of 16-6, led by junior transfer Charlotte North’s 8 goals.
The Eagles took a 3-1 lead to start the game with goals from North (2) and Jordan Lappin, but 4 unanswered BU goals put BC down 5-3 with 10:29 to go in the first half. North would not let that stand however, and scored twice more to tie things up at 5 before halftime.
The Eagles, who have often proven themselves to be a second half team, completely dominated in the second, starting with a pair of goals from Jenn Medjid to take a 7-5 lead. BU’s Lexi Lewis got BU within 1 at 24:22, but the Eagles managed to hold BU scoreless for the rest of the game. The Eagles scored 9 unanswered goals to end the game (North, North, Lappin, Lappin, Cara Urbank, North, North, Medjid, Cassidy Weeks) to earn a 16-6 final score. Rachel Hall made an impressive 15 saves for BC in the win.
BC returns to action on Sunday at noon for their home opener against Vanderbilt.
