While the recent headlines have been around the departures of Alison Foley and Sam Coffey, the Eagles enjoyed a remarkably successful 2018 season and went to the NCAA Tournament.
The Eagles gave up a season-high four goals in the disappointing first round loss to visiting Hofstra, crashing out of the NCAA Tournament in the first round despite outshooting the Pride 28-6.
The score line failed to reflect the significant advantage the Eagles had over the visiting Wolfpack the entire game—they outshot them 18-6, controlled possession, and moved to a perfect 9-0 at home.
After Gianna Mitchell netted her team-leading fifth goal in the ninth minute, BC dug in its heels and impressed on defense against a nationally-ranked opponent.
Each of the Eagles three leading scorers found the back of the net, while the back line and goaltender Alexis Bryant posted their fourth consecutive clean sheet to roll past Stony Brook.
The Eagles have plenty of returners—including two that’ve recovered from injuries that cost them all of 2017—and an impressive recruiting class that bodes well for the 2018 campaign.
