Virginia Women Fall on Road at Boston College

The No. 9 Virginia women’s lacrosse team dropped its fourth ACC contest of the season, falling 10-7 at Boston College.

With the loss, the Cavaliers drop to 6-6 and 0-4 in the ACC with only one regular-season conference contest remaining, the season finale on April 17 against Virginia Tech.

“It is definitely disappointing to come up short against BC,” Virginia head coach Julie Myers said. “I think they are a good team with some strong attackers, but we didn’t score when we needed to. We worked hard, but we didn’t execute the simple things. We had lots of shots, but we couldn’t hit the cage.”

Caroline McTiernan and Ashlee Warner each scored two goals. Casey Bocklet was held without a goal or an assist for the first time this season.

“We need to get back to the drawing board and change some things about how we are preparing for teams,” Myers said. “We are looking forward to the second part of the season starting up in April.”

The Cavaliers conclude their current three-game road trip on Tuesday, April 2, when they take on American at 4 p.m. in Washington, D.C.
