    LOS ANGELES - The USC women's lacrosse team (0-2) fell, 13-10, to No. 7-ranked Boston College (5-1) at McAlister Field on Thursday, March 6. The Women of Troy fought tooth and nail with one of the nation's top squads but came out just short as the Eagles limited mistakes in the second half.

    In the center circle, freshman midfielder Michaela Michael posted five draw controls and picked up one of the Trojans' goals. Sophomore midfielder Amanda Johansen also scored, picked up a ground ball and two draw controls, and caused one of USC's four forced turnovers. Freshman attacker Annie Ruland scored one and had one helper for a pair of points in her first collegiate appearance.

    On defense, sophomore Courtney Tarleton caused two turnovers while goalie Liz Shaeffer recorded eight saves and a USC record six ground balls in the loss.

    The BC scoring game was led by Moira Barry's three goals with a pair each from Brooke Blue and Mikaela Rix. The trio was joined by six other Eagles on the scoreboard; all with one goal each. In the net, Emily Mata posted six saves to grab her fifth win.

    The Trojans are back in action as hosts of LIU Brooklyn (0-5) at 1 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 9, at McAlister Field. The game will be streamed live on the Pac-12 Network portal.
