Saturday Wrap: Records Fall and Losing Streaks End on Wild Afternoon

Down by two goals with less than nine minutes remaining, No. 3 Syracuse needed a spark. Meaghan Tyrrell and Megan Carney came calling.

Tyrrell had two of her team-high five goals and Carney added one goal and one assist from her five-point afternoon during a game-changing six-goal run as time ticked away in the second half, completely shifting the momentum and leading Syracuse to a 15-12 win at the Carrier Dome.

Emma Tyrrell (Meaghan’s younger sister), Sam Swart (three goals) and Bianca Chevarie also scored in the run for Syracuse (8-1, 5-1 ACC).

The Syracuse offense had been stifled up to that point by Charlie Campbell and the Virginia defense. Campbell was a rock, making 18 saves, but the Virginia defense allowed opportunity after opportunity in the waning minutes. It didn’t help that Syracuse kept winning possession with a 19-10 draw advantage.

Both Annie Dyson an Ashlyn McGovern recorded hat tricks for Virginia (8-4, 3-4 ACC).

Katie Whelan's career-high eight points helped Hofstra beat JMU 13-7 on Saturday. The Pride led wire-to-wire in the victory.

Katie Whelan notched a career-high eight points on a career-high six goals and two assists as Hofstra took down CAA rival (in a non-conference game) James Madison 13-7 at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md.

Hofstra (4-4) blitzed James Madison (5-4) and got out to a 4-0 lead in the first 14 minutes. James Madison didn’t score until Emma Greenhill found the back of the net with 12:30 left in the first half.

It was a closer game at halftime, as Hofstra lead just 6-4. But by scoring five of the first six goals of the second half, the Pride took an 11-5 lead. It’s Hofstra sixth win against James Madison in 26 tries. Hofstra had lost the previous five meetings dating back to 2015.







North Makes BC History

Not long after Jenn Medjid tied Sam Apuzzo’s single-game goals record at Boston College, Charlotte North went ahead and broke it.

Boston College is now 9-1 (5-1 ACC). Virginia Tech is 3-8 (0-6 ACC).
