Boston College women’s lacrosse picked up another dominant win today, beating Temple by a score of 21-11. BC will now head to the NCAA Quarterfinals to face the winner of Notre Dame vs Virginia next week (as of the publication of this article, it’s looking like Notre Dame).
Similarly to the first game of this year’s Tournament, the Eagles pretty much dominated their opponents in every aspect of the game. BC’s speed in particular made it difficult for Temple to get anything going, as by the time the Owls were getting their defense set up, the Eagles had already scored.
As usual, Charlotte North was the offensive star of the game, scoring 8 goals (including a few really tricky ones) and winning 12 draw controls. Jenn Medjid also has phenomenal game with 4 goals and 3 assists, and Caitlynn Mossman picked up her third hat trick of the season with 3 goals of her own. Cara Urbank and Courtney Weeks each added a pair of goals to BC’s total, with Urbank also earning 3 assists. The Eagles remaining goals were scored by Hollie Schleicher and Kayla Martello.
As in BC’s win over Fairfield on Friday, Rachel Hall, Abbey Ngai, and Kait Devir all saw time in net for the Eagles. Hall played the first half and made 6 saves on 10 shots before handing the reins over to Ngai to start the second. Ngai allowed 5 goals before Devir came in with 3:30 to go in the game. Devir allowed 2 quick Temple goals at the very end of the game, but that did nothing to erase BC’s huge lead.
