After outscoring America East opponents 10-0 in its first two games, the No. 15 Boston University field hockey team was probably not expecting to have a .500 conference record with one game left to play in the regular season.
Instead of taking advantage of what could have been a season-changing win, the No. 15 Boston University field hockey team concluded its non-conference schedule on a sour note yesterday, dropping a 3-0 contest to the No. 4 University of Connecticut.
A game against the fourth-best field hockey team in the nation is sure to be a challenge for every player on the opposing side. Strikers need to face a premier defense and goalie, backs need to defend some of the most versatile attackers in the game and coaches need to draw up some of their most creative plays in attempt to outdo their opponents.
The No. 11 Boston University field hockey team will take a break from the scheduling norm &- and midterms &- as it takes on No. 5 University of Connecticut Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Jack Barry Field in its third-to-last game of the regular season. The Terriers are looking to regain some of the momentum lost after dropping a 3-2 contest to University of New Hampshire over the weekend.
