For the first time in program history, BC enters the ACC Tournament as the top overall seed, and will face a Louisville team that went winless in conference play and has bowed out in the first round three consecutive years.
Game after game, BC has made its case for the top spot in the weekly Inside Lacrosse Poll. Now outright ACC regular season champions, it’s clearer than ever that the undefeated Eagles should be recognized as the best team in the country.
Sam Apuzzo was her usual clutch self, the Eagles defense stepped up when they needed most, and BC capped off a perfect regular season with a last-second win over Syracuse.
Sam Apuzzo scored five goals, including the game-winner with just 1.7 seconds left in regulation, to propel the Eagles to their first undefeated regular season finish in program history.
In what was somewhat of a back-and-forth affair, Sam Apuzzo stole the spotlight, scoring four goals—including three in the second half alone—to lead her team to a title-clinching victory.
After jumping out to a commanding seven-goal lead in the first half, BC went dead silent for the first 22 minutes and 36 seconds of the second period, having to rely on Dempsey Arsenault to fend off a Big Green scare.
Despite adverse weather conditions, the Eagles found the back of the net 18 times at Duke, en route to their sixth 10-plus goal victory of the season.
Winners of 12 straight, the Eagles are off to their best start in program history and could very well be heading back to the National Championship. Do they have what it takes to win it all?
Sam Apuzzo tallied six goals and two assists, and the Eagles capped off spring break with a convincing victory over the Aztecs, extending the second-longest win streak in program history.
