Play-by-play recap

The Virginia Cavaliers held Boston College scoreless for 29 minutes in the middle of the contest to pull away from a 3-3 tie and open up an 11-3 lead before defeating the Eagles 13-6 in Newton, Mass. Blair Weymouth led the offensive charge for the No. 7 Cavaliers (13-3, 3-2 ACC) with four goals and two assists, including three goals and an assist in that 8-0 run. Jessy Morgan had four caused turnovers and Jess Wasilewski had six ground balls to lead the Cavaliers defensively. BC (5-9, 1-4 ACC) was led by Katie Monaghan’s 11 saves.

Virginia opened up a 2-0 lead on unassisted goals by Weymouth and Megan Havrilla before the Eagles tied the game with a pair of strikes from Elizabeth Kadison and Lauren Costello in a span of 73 seconds. Kate Breslin’s goal off an assist from Ashley McCulloch after Wasilewski scooped up a ground ball gave Virginia a 3-2 lead, but Costello’s second goal off an 8-meter one minute after Breslin’s goal tied the game up at 3-3.

A draw control by Katie Shannon started the Virginia run that spanned both halves. Breslin notched a goal one minute after Costello’s second goal, and then Kalkstein and Wasilewski combined to give UVa a 6-3 lead that the teams took into the break. A McBrearty save to start the second half led to Kalkstein’s second goal. Weymouth scored three consecutive goals in a four-minute span to open up a 10-3 lead, and Swagart’s first goal of the game completed the 8-0 run and gave UVa an 11-3 lead.BC’s Rachel Tinquist stopped the run with an 8-meter goal at 12:09 left to play.

Shannon again won the ensuing draw and got the ball to Weymouth, who fed Swagart, who scored 53 seconds after Tinquist to answer for the Cavaliers. Sarah Hackman won the draw for the Cavaliers, who then possessed the ball in their offensive zone for the next nine minutes. Virginia tacked on its final goal as Wasilewski fed a cutting Megan O’Malley at 1:55 for UVa’s 13th goal. BC won the draw and the teams exchanged possessions briefly before Kadison scored off an assist from Costello with under a minute to play.

Virginia (3-2 ACC) and Boston College (1-4 ACC) will both travel to Chapel Hill to compete in the ACC Tournament next week. Final pairings of the tournament will be announced by the conference office after Maryland (3-1 ACC) plays Virginia Tech (0-4 ACC) on Sunday; Duke (4-1 ACC) defeated UNC (3-2 ACC) on Friday night. Quarterfinal action on Thursday will pit the No. 3 seed against the No. 6 seed and the No. 4 seed against the No. 5 seed.
