The Boston University field hockey team looks to improve its conference record with an away tilt at unranked Fairfield University Friday.
The Boston University field hockey team started the season with several question marks. A daunting slate of ranked opponents and an inexperienced lineup riddled with injuries have taken their toll on the Terriers thus far.
The Boston University field hockey team opened conference play on Saturday with a 2-0 win over the unranked University of Vermont. However, they fell to No. 13 Duke University on Sunday, 5-1, leaving their overall record at a frustrating 4-8 (1-0-0 AE) with seven games left to play.
Start with a young, inexperienced lineup. Add in one of the nation’s toughest schedules. Then, sprinkle in some backbreaking late goals by the opposition. What you get is a recipe for the frustratingly inconsistent season the Boston University field hockey team is experiencing.
The Boston University field hockey team has taken its lumps with one of the most difficult schedules in the country over the first six weeks of the season. Now standing at 3-7 on the year, and a week after two narrow road losses to ranked teams, the Terriers are set to begin America East play at home Saturday against the University of Vermont before a trip to No. 13 Duke University.
