The third-seeded Boston College women’s lacrosse team earned a 13-8 win over Denver in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday in Newton, and it was historic.
Charlotte North paced BC (17-3) with four goals, becoming the NCAA’s all-time leader with 342. Caitlynn Mossman added three goals and Rachel Hall made eight saves for the Eagles, who built an 8-5 halftime lead and held off the Pioneers from there.
BC will host sixth-seeded Loyola Maryland in the quarterfinals Thursday with a chance to book another trip to the Final Four. The Eagles have made four straight championship games and won their first national title last year.
