BC achieved yet another milestone as Sam Apuzzo and Dempsey Arsenault were named finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, the first time the program has had multiple finalists in a single year.
Following their defeat to North Carolina in the ACC Championship, the Eagles clinched the No. 2 overall seed, which likely sets up a rematch with the No. 3 Tar Heels in the Final Four.
BC outscored the Tar Heels, 6-1, in the early going but saw that lead, and its perfect season, disappear as UNC claimed its fourth ACC Championship in a row.
For the second straight season, the Eagles will face off against North Carolina in the ACC Championship. Here’s what to expect from the Tar Heels, who are led by an excellent defense.
The Eagles trailed by three goals with seven minutes to play, but rallied to down the Orange, 14-13, behind Taylor Walker’s late winner, and advance to the ACC Championship game.
Abbey Ngai didn’t allow a goal in the first half, allowing the Eagles to build a comfortable 8-0 cushion that was more than enough for a win to advance to the ACC Tournament quarterfinals.
Ten different BC lacrosse players notched goals, and the Eagles capped off another perfect regular season with a 19-6 win over Louisville on senior day.
Kenzie Kent, Dempsey Arsenault, and Cara Urbank all recorded hat tricks, and the Eagles used a 10-0 run that took place over 22:43 of game time to remain undefeated, beating Yale 15-10 Tuesday afternoon.
Despite allowing five goals in the final six minutes, BC had built a comfortable enough lead over the Hokies to escape Blacksburg with its fifth win in a row against either a ranked or receiving votes team.
After an incredible stretch of success that includes 33 consecutive regular-season wins, it’s clear that BC lacrosse deserves much better marketing and better facilities from the athletics department.
