Fairfield women’s lacrosse’s wasn’t able to hold on long enough against rival Boston College on Saturday.

The Stags dropped a 19-7 decision bringing their overall record to 0-3 while BC improves 1-1.

“We came out the second half and we struggled coming out of the draw and I think we just reverted back to a lot of the not so great play in the first two games,” said Head Coach Stacey McCue.

Fairfield found itself up early in the game with a 4-1 lead over the Eagles. But it was not enough to hold back BC’s strong offense.

The Eagles scored six more goals for the half putting them at a 7-5 lead going into intermission.

During the second half, Fairfield found themselves chasing Eagle tail feather, as Boston College went on a 16 goal streak to leave Fairfield in the dust. The Eagles out scored the Stags 12-2 in the second half for a final score of 19-7.

“BC is a strong team and they took advantage and we just tried everything but nothing was working,” said McCue. “We need to start keeping to the things and keeping persistent and doing the things that work for us and the second half we fell apart.”

Despite the lose it was another stand out game for sophomore Rebecca White as she went on to tally two goals for the game along with junior Amy Neville. Also tallying goals for the Stags were Nina Tedeschi ’10, Kim Fuchs ’09, and Ashley Jenkins ’10.

In goal Lauren Chatnik ’09 made four saves, allowing 19 goals and played for 58. The last two minutes were played by rookie Jessica Parnell who saw her first action of the season, but did not face a shot.

However despite the loss, the team is still in good spirits and ready to make changes for the upcoming game on Tuesday against LIU.

“I think everyone is frustrated, but frustrated more because they know what they are capable of doing, which isn’t a bad place to be,” McCue said. “They know what they are capable of it, so they are pretty excited to put it together for Tuesday.”
