The Eagles and Tar Heels exchanged blows during Friday evening’s Final Four matchup, producing an all-time classic and an equally memorable highlight reel.
In its third straight trip to the Final Four, BC lacrosse faces off against a familiar foe in North Carolina. Find out what you need to know in our preview, as the Eagles go for a third consecutive appearance in the national championship game.
The Eagles avenged their 2018 ACC Championship defeat, traveling to Chapel Hill Saturday and beating the No. 3 Tar Heels, 14-8, behind five goals from Sam Apuzzo.
Sam Apuzzo scored five goals and BC avenged last year’s loss in the conference title game via a stifling defensive effort, limiting the nation’s No. 7 offense to just eight goals.
North Carolina bounced back from an early deficit with a 9-2 run—a stretch that ultimately propelled the Tar Heels to their third-consecutive ACC Tournament title, snapping BC’s season-long, 19-game win streak.
