A five goal and four goal effort for Sam Apuzzo and Kenzie Kent respectively powered the Boston College Eagles to a 17-14 victory over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the Eagles’ second win this season over the Irish. The win also sends the Eagles to the ACC semifinal Friday afternoon against North Carolina.

The game was hotly contested, as the Eagles took only a 7-5 lead into the locker room at halftime. The Eagles then jumped out to a 17-11 lead, before the Irish put in three straight to close out the game, an effort that proved futile.

Kaileen Hart and Kate Weeks both contributed three goals to the Eagles’ efforts Thursday afternoon.

Boston College will take on No. 1 seed North Carolina, which defeated Duke 18-6 in the first game of the day in Richmond, Va. The Eagles fell to the Tar Heels 15-13 in Chapel Hill, N.C. in the only meeting between the two teams.
