Leave it to Jamie Ortega to break open what might have been the biggest game of the season for North Carolina.

Fittingly it was Ortega, the decorated fifth-year attacker, who started UNC’s turning of fortunes in the ACC championship game against Boston College. Down at halftime, UNC leaned on Ortega, who scored 66 seconds into the third period. That goal pushed her past Maryland’s Jen Adams for the most points in ACC history. Adams had 445 points from 1998-2001; Ortega ended Saturday with 451 after notching four goals and five assists.

UNC won the game handily, and Ortega is the USA Lacrosse Magazine Division I Women’s Player of the Week.
