The Boston College women’s lacrosse team is headed to the Final Four for the third consecutive season.
The second-seeded Eagles (21-1) defeated Princeton, 17-10, Saturday afternoon in Newton to secure their trip to Baltimore, where they will face third seed North Carolina on Friday in the NCAA Division 1 semifinals. The Tar Heels (17-3), which dealt BC its only loss of the season in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, advanced with a 14-7 win over Virginia (13-7).
Graduate senior Kenzie Kent, a Norwell native, led the Eagles’ attack with 8 points (two goals, six assists). Kent’s six assists tied her single-game program record, set last week against Colorado.
