The No. 3 North Carolina field hockey team kicked off the weekend of games with a tense 2-1 loss against No. 18 Boston College on Friday.
UNC pushed across a goal with 17 minutes left in the first half, but lost that lead less than 10 minutes later when Boston College scored after a corner bounced around in the box. Through solid defense the Tar Heels kept the Boston College attack at bay until the 20 minute mark of the second half. Down the stretch, UNC created numerous chances in the attacking third of the field, but ultimately could not find the back of the cage.
Who stood out?
In the low scoring game, it was Lauren Moyer who notched the lone goal for North Carolina. The senior netted her fourth goal of the season off of an assist from sophomore Ashley Hoffman. Hoffman also led UNC in shots with four, and shots on goal with two.
