Elizabeth Warner scored the game-winning goal with just over one minute to play, Margo Carlin added a tally just before halftime, and the Eagles beat Northwestern, 2-1, in the NCAA Tournament.
Four different players netted goals for the Eagles, who beat Quinnipiac, 4-0, to win their second straight game and move above .500.
The Eagles won eight penalty corners to Harvard’s two, but couldn’t find the back of the net on any of them, while Harvard scored the only goal of a game on a penalty corner with no time remaining in the first half.
The Eagles slotted the game’s first goal, but that alone wasn’t nearly enough to thwart the top-ranked Tar Heels, the highest-scoring team in the country.
Frederique Haverhals got the Eagles’ comeback started 14 minutes into the second half, then added two more goals, including the game winner, to fuel an improbable and memorable win for BC.
