CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Junior Covie Stanwick and sophomore Sarah Mannelly led Boston College with four points apiece as the No. 5 lacrosse team lost at No. 2 Maryland on Saturday, 10-9, at the Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex.
The four points by both Eagles were a game high. Stanwick had two goals and two assists while Mannelly scored three times and assisted on another. Junior Mikaela Rix added a pair of goals and three draw controls.
The Eagles have lost their three ACC games by a combined four goals. They also lost to No. 2 Syracuse on February 26, 11-9, and No. 1 North Carolina, 14-13, last weekend.
Maryland scored the first four goals of the game to take the early lead. Halle Majorana scored two of the four goals in the opening run. Boston College closed the gap to 5-3 with 6:17 left in the half. Consecutive goals by Moira Barry and Brooke Blue brought the Eagles to within two, and both were assisted by Stanwick.
The Terrapins' Taylor Cummings scored the last goal of the half to give them a 6-3 lead at the break.
BC scored the first five goals of the second half to establish an 8-6 lead with 19:39 left in the game. Mannelly and Rix both scored two goals to give the Eagles the edge. Maryland responded with the next three goals to regain a 9-8 lead. Cummings scored two of those three goals.
Stanwick tied the game at 9-9 with 15:09 remaining.
Maryland brought on goalkeeper Emily Kift for the final 20 minutes and she came up with some big saves to keep BC off the board the rest of the way. She made three important stops after allowing the Stanwick goal to give Maryland the final chance.
The Terps' Erin Collins was the one to finally break the tie with 4:19 left in the game. BC was unable to score a final goal and Maryland held on for the win.
Cummings scored three goals and added an assist for Maryland (13-0, 4-0 ACC). Collins and Beth Glaros both had two goals.
Boston College (8-3, 1-3) is back in action on Wednesday night when it hosts Holy Cross at 5 p.m. in Newton.
