In April, North Carolina scored at least 15 runs in each of its wins over BC. On Thursday, in ACC Tournament pool play, the Tar Heels weren’t far off from reaching that mark again.

North Carolina scored seven unanswered goals in the first half of its ACC Tournament semifinal against BC. The Eagles put together a strong second half of play, but ultimately could not recover.
