In consecutive days, the Boston University Lacrosse teams earned spots in the 2018 Patriot League Tournament.

On Saturday afternoon in West Point, New York, the Terrier Women’s Lacrosse team (9-6, 5-3 Patriot League) stole a 9-8 win over Army (9-7, 3-5 Patriot League) to earn a berth to the conference tournament and its sixth consecutive victory.

Senior Caroline English and freshmen Ava Barry and Ryann Gaffney netted two goals apiece. Senior Kelly Matthews, sophomore Lexi Lewis and freshman Emily Vervlied all scored once for BU.

Barry extended her stellar stretch, as she has now scored 17 of her 22 career goals during the winning streak. The Lake Grove, New York product has also recorded five of her eight career assists during the BU’s ascension to the upper echelon of the Patriot League.

The women’s team took the sixth and final lead change on Saturday afternoon when English, Gaffney and Matthews sparked a three-goal swing to make it 9-7 with 12:27 to play.

Senior goalkeeper Christine Laible collected 11 saves on 19 shots. Saturday afternoon marked the Roseland, New Jersey’s third straight game with double-digit saves.

A trip to Navy will end the regular season slate for the Terriers, with face-off set for 1:00 p.m. in Annapolis, Maryland on April 28th.
