NEWTON, Mass. – The second-seeded Boston College lacrosse team used a second half scoring surge to down seventh-seeded Princeton, 17-12, on Saturday at the Newton Campus Fields. With the win, the Eagles advance to the program's third consecutive Final Four.
Cara Urbank opened up the scoring for the Eagles just 46 seconds into the contest, and then assisted on another goal 90 seconds later for a 2-0 lead. The Tigers, though, responded to the two-goal deficit in less than 15 seconds, scoring right off the ensuing draw.
The two teams would go back-and-forth, tying up at 2-2, 3-3 and 4-4 before Princeton took its own two-goal lead at 6-4 with less than eight to play in the half.
