Dream season comes to an end, 21-11. The Temple Owls Women’s Lacrosse team (13-6) saw their season come to end with a loss to #4 Boston College (14-3) in the Second Round of the Women’s NCAA Championship Playoffs. 18 goals were scored in the first half with 14 belonging to BC. BC seized control almost immediately jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first three minutes.
MacKenzie Roth (1g 2a) stopped the run but BC went back to work and pushed it to a 6–1 contest. Lauren Zinkl posted her first of three that made it 6-2. Then, the roof collapsed on the Owls when BC ripped off a three-goal run pushing it to 9-2. Julie Schlickling (1g) ended that uprising before Jenn Medjid (4g,3a) and Charlotte North (8g) got it to 11-3.
Belle Mastropietro (2g) countered but North, Caitlyn Mossman (2g 2a) and Hollie Schleichrer (1g) ended the dominating first half.
How dominating you ask? Charlotte North registered 6 goals with Jenn Medjid collecting 3 goals with a pair of helpers. It was more of the same in the second half that was started with Zinkl’s 9th, Medjid getting goal number 50 from Cara Urbank with Bridget Whitaker picking up her 42nd to cut it to 15-6.
Medjid (4g,3a) found Urbank for her 36th with Zinkl matching. North hit for her 85th and 86th…that’s not a misprint. Temple would not hit the scoresheet again for 12:00 minutes and Courtney Weeks (2g,1a), Kayla Martello (1g) got it to 20-8 before Mastropietro converted a Meghan Hoffman pass for her 35th, Caitlyn Mossman (2g 2a) notched the final BC goal with Hoffman (3g,1a) getting her 22nd and 23d before Bridget Whitaker notched the final goal of the Temple season.
By the Numbers
Temple was only able to fire 27 shots to the BC 37 with BC putting 31 on net to only 17 for the Owls. Turnovers were even at 13 with BC collecting 14 ground balls to the 13 for Temple.
