Denver Drops Weather-Shortened Match to #1 BC

#1 Boston College was leading Denver women’s lacrosse, 9-5, at the end of the third quarter when the match was called due to inclement weather. The temperature was 15 degrees and falling with a wind chill of zero with flurries fast approaching when the match was called in the Eagles’ favor.

Denver played BC even the first quarter, 2-2, but the Eagles had possession most of the second quarter and were powered by four consecutive goals to build a 9-5 advantage at the break. As conditions deteriorated, neither team could score during the third period and play was halted.

BC outshot DU 12-9 but DU won the groundball battle, 18-11. BC star Charlotte North had 4 goals and an assist for the Eagles. Kayla Derose led DU with 2 goals on the day.

Less than ideal conditions but a well-played game by Denver against a national powerhouse. Next up for Denver is a trip to play Michigan Sunday in Ann  Arbor, Michigan where, hopefully, better weather will prevail.

  1. Honestly, the Pios were lucky the game was called at 3 quarters . 9-5 is a very respectable scoreline loss to a top ranked program (the Pios’ typically lose to top 5 w-lax programs by about 10 goals).

    Kudos to Liza Kelly (and DU) for getting the BC Eagles to come all the way out to Denver for a single game. It’s too bad the weather didn’t cooperate – lacrosse is not a winter sport.
