BC women's lacrosse falls in ACC tourney final

The season is far from finished, and the ultimate goal of a national championship still can be achieved, but there was clear disappointment for the Boston College women’s lacrosse team following a 15-13 loss at Alumni Stadium to North Carolina in its bid for the program’s first ACC tournament championship.

It’s going to sting, it’s another agonizing loss the program is going to have to fight through, but they’re resilient, and we’ve got a really good group of leaders, so I believe in them that they’ll find a way to build off of this.”

It took a bit longer than they might have liked, but the Tar Heels eventually settled into the game, using a five-goal run to tie things up at 6-6.

Those were the few times the Eagles top players were able to get space from defenders as Emma Trenchard denied Apuzzo, the Tewaaraton Award winner, and Catie Woodruff bottled up Kent.

Emma is smart, confident, tough and she’s quick,” said Tar Heels coach Jenny Levy who has also had both players on the same team at the national level.

Katie Hoeg (three goals, two assists) dashed those hopes with 2:03 to play, however, coming out from behind the cage and scoring just under the crossbar.
