Behind a second half goal from Fusine Govaert, the No. 10 Eagles knocked off No. 4 Duke, securing a crucial Senior Night win that had implications for the postseason as well.
With the Eagles in the midst of a dominant six-game win streak, head coach Kelly Doton has finally found a winning formula, one that includes a dominant defense and a suddenly potent attack led by freshman Margo Carlin.
Four different players netted goals for the Eagles, who beat Quinnipiac, 4-0, to win their second straight game and move above .500.
Margo Carlin recorded her team-leading seventh goal of the season, Brigid Wood opened the scoring, and the Eagles’ defense recorded its first shutout of the season as BC beat Wake Forest, 2-0, to open ACC play.
Sky Caron scored twice while Charlotte Von Huelsen, Nell Webber, Fusine Govaert and Margo Carlin all added scores in a thorough 6-2 win over nearby rival Northeastern on Sunday afternoon.
In a game where the result can turn on a dime and turnovers happen at the drop of a hat, it’s all about rebounding. Whether it’s a simple change of possession, a second-chance shot, or the comeback from a career-threatening injury, Boston College field hockey is no stranger to bouncing back. Mired in a three-game…
Despite dominating the game for three quarters and building a two-goal lead, BC broke down in the final 15 minutes and gave up back-to-back goals before eventually falling in overtime.
Lucy Lytle found the back of the cage 25 seconds in, and BC never looked back, bouncing back from Friday night’s loss to UNC with a five-goal victory against the visiting Minutewomen.
Sky Caron tied the game with just 4.8 seconds left to play on a penalty shot, but 12 minutes into the second overtime period Kirsten Mansfield slipped a shot past Jonna Kennedy to give Northwestern the victory.
