Women’s lacrosse looks to clip the Eagles on Tuesday
The JU women’s lacrosse team will look to build on its program’s first victory when they face Boston College on Tuesday at 4 p.m. at the Ashley Sports Complex on A-Sun.TV.

Last weekend, in Clinton, S.C., JU won its first game in program history by holding off a late rally from Detroit-Mercy, 15-13.

“We’re very excited to play a top-caliber team like BC,” said JU head coach Mindy McCord. “We have some good experience under our belt now and we know what a win feels like. I hope we can take advantage of what we’ve learned and apply it to this game.”

The Dolphins (1-3, 1-0 National Lacrosse Conference) found themselves leading for a majority of the game before a six-goal run from the Titans (1-2, 0-2 NLC) brought the game to within one until freshman Cassie Campasano sealed the game with 1:15 remaining.

Campasano led the Dolphins in points for the second time this season, scoring the program’s first hat trick and adding an assist for four points on the day while eight Dolphins scored goals, with six scoring more than one. Freshman goalie Karli Tobin turned in an inspired performance, making 12 saves, turning away several point-blank shots in the dying minutes of the game.

The Eagles (2-0, 0-0 ACC) are coming into Jacksonville after defeating Bryant (20-4) and Canisius (14-5) to open the season.

BC is led in scoring by Brooke Blue with 11 goals while Kristen Igoe follows with five. Goalie Sheila Serafina is posting a 2.73 GAA, allowing just five goals all season while making 11 saves.

The Dolphins draw will come with the men’s lacrosse team facing Mt. St. Mary’s following the game.
