Women’s Cross Country

Senior Anna Oeser led the Eagles with a 58th place finish, running the course in a time of 20:45.2. This was a personal best for Oeser on this course by 18 seconds.

TL;DR: BC finished in 18th place at the Pre-National Meet this week.

Field Hockey

The Eagles played 2 games this weekend, and unfortunately finished 0-2. On Friday afternoon, the Eagles took on ACC foe Louisville. The teams were scoreless through the first period, but Sarah Johnson scored at minute 23 to give BC a 1-0 lead that would hold into halftime. Sky Caron converted on a penalty stroke in the third to put BC up 2-0, but Louisville scored 2 unanswered goals to send the game into overtime, where the Cardinals would ultimately earn the 3-2 victory.

On Sunday, BC was shutout by St. Joseph’s, losing by a score of 2-0. Jonna Kennedy made 7 saves for the Eagles, but she couldn’t make up for the fact that BC only managed a single shot on goal.

TL;DR: The Eagles fell to 9-5 overall after losing to Louisville and Saint Joseph’s this weekend.

Football

BC disappointed in Saturday’s night game on The Heights, scoring just once and losing to NC State by a score of 33-7. The teams went into the second quarter tied at 7, but the Wolfpack were the only team to score after that and BC came away with another loss.

TL;DR: BC lost to NC State and has now lost 2 straight games.

Men’s Hockey

The Eagles started the weekend off strong, defeating Northeastern at Conte in front of a packed arena. Marshall Warren, who has been phenomenal this season, started the scoring off 5 minutes into the game. The Huskies tied it early in the second period, and took a 2-1 lead minutes later.

Captain Marc McLaughlin tied the game at 2 on the power play late in the second period, and Colby Ambrosio earned BC back the lead just under halfway into the third period. Patrick Giles and McLaughlin added insurance goals to make it 5-2 BC, and while Northeastern scored as the clock wound down, it was too little too late for the Huskies and BC won 5-3/

Saturday night was ... less good for the Eagles. BC lost to Bentley by a score of 6-2, with the Eagles goals coming from Jack McBain and McLaughlin. If you really want to read more about the game, you can check out our full recap.

TL;DR: The Eagles earned a big win over Northeastern on Friday before getting destroyed by Bentley on Saturday.

Women’s Hockey

The Eagles remain undefeated after sweeping UNH this weekend. Friday’s game got off to a slow start, with neither team scoring until the second period. Jillian Fey finished a Hannah Bilka rebound at 8:45 in the second to break the scoring drought and put BC up by 1, and the Eagles retained the lead until UNH tied the game in the third period. Luckily for the Eagles, Kelly Browne immediately took the puck off the face-off and set herself up for a goal, earning BC the 2-1 victory. Abigail Levy, who has been fantastic this season, made 30 saves for the Eagles.

The Eagles got off to a rougher start on Saturday, going down 2-0 by early in the second period. The Eagles didn’t score until 17:29 in the second, when Abby Newhook took a pass from Kelly Browne to score. Willow Corson tied things up just about a minute later, stuffing a deflected puck into the net. The teams went into the third tied at 2. Newhook scored her second goal of the game off a Hannah Bilka pass at 16:19 in the third to complete the comeback win.

TL;DR: The Eagles beat UNH twice to stay undefeated.

Kristofer Konradsson won the game for BC at 83:13, taking possession of a Syracuse turnover and setting up a play for himself.

TL;DR: The Eagles beat Syracuse for their first ACC win of the year.
