Durham, N.H. - The ninth-ranked Boston College field hockey team earned its third win over a ranked team, defeating No. 20 New Hampshire, 3-1, at Memorial Field on Friday afternoon. The Eagles (9-2) outshot the Wildcats (5-5), 15-7, dominating in the second half, 10-2.

"The girls really persevered through a very tough second half," head coach Ainslee Lamb said. "New Hampshire played extremely well. I was impressed by their play. We have to learn how to continue to play at a consistent high level for the entire game and UNH challenged us with that today. We want to refocus our tactics and combine that disciplined play with the energy that we have brought to every game this far."

The Eagles didn't waste any time getting on the board, notching a goal in the fourth minute of action. Sophomore AshLeigh Sebia tallied her third score of the season at the 3:32 mark on a pass from classmate Kelcie Hromisin.

Junior Emma Plasteras increased BC's lead to two at the seven-minute mark on an unassisted score. The midfielder leads the team with eight goals on the year.

BC held the 2-0 lead for much of the game until UNH was awarded a penalty stroke in the 58th minute. Megan Bozek cut the lead to one by converting the attempt, but it didn't last long as freshman Eryn McCoy scored her seventh of the season three minutes later on a penalty corner. Plasteras, who inserted the ball, tallied her team-leading 10th assist.

Sophomore goalie Leah Settipane tallied five saves on the afternoon. Classmate Jordyn Hamilton made a stop for her first career defensive save. The Eagles earned four corners while the Wildcats registered six in the game. UNH goalie Carlie Tarbell recorded two saves.

The Eagles play their second ranked team of the weekend when they head to Storrs, Conn., on Sunday to battle No. 2 Connecticut at 2 p.m.
