Oct. 30, 2012
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Boston College junior forward Chapin Duke and North Carolina sophomore forward Charlotte Craddock have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Co-Players of the Week, announced Tuesday by the conference office.
Duke scored the game-winning goal for the Eagles (10-8, 2-3 ACC) to give them their second ACC win as they defeated Wake Forest, 2-1, on Friday, Oct. 26. With the two teams knotted at one in the 68th minute, the Dedham, Mass., native put classmate Virgynia Muma's rebound past Wake Forest goalie Kaitlyn Ruhf for the winning tally. Duke leads BC with 14 points, seven goals, and three gamewinners this season.
Craddock scored four goals over the weekend to help lead top-ranked North Carolina to a pair of wins. On the road at No. 9 Old Dominion on Friday, she scored the opening goal and then assisted on the game winner as the Tar Heels (18-1, 5-0 ACC) downed the Monarchs, 3-1. She scored her third hat trick of the season on Sunday in a 6-1 win over Radford.
The Eagles will take on Wake Forest (8-10, 1-4 ACC) on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 1 p.m. in the first round of the ACC Tournament, hosted by the Tar Heels.
