Seven unanswered goals in seven minutes proved too much for the Boston College Eagles to handle, as the Eagles fell to the top seeded North Carolina Tar Heels in the ACC Tournament in Richmond, Va. 17-14.
Kenzie Kent opened the scoring in the first half, netting her seventeenth goal of the season, with 28:04 left in the first.
The Tar Heels then scored seven unanswered goals, taking a 7-1 lead before Dempsey Arsenault stopped the bleeding with her twelfth goal of the year.
Despite outscoring the Tar Heels 7-5 in the second half, the Eagles couldn’t make up a 12-7 halftime deficit, and the Eagles’ tournament run came to an end.
Sam Apuzzo netted four goals in the Eagles’ effort.
The Eagles now await a likely NCAA Tournament bid. The Eagles, depending on the selection committee, could potentially be selected to host a NCAA tournament game based on their performance in the perennially competitive ACC tournament.
