Game Preview

Clemson, S.C. — No. 24 Clemson (7-2, 1-2 ACC) will host No. 4 Boston College (5-2, 2-1 ACC) on Thursday, March 16 at Historic Riggs Field. The game will be streamed live on ACCNX and live stats will be available here

The Tigers look to continue momentum from their exciting 11-10 win over the No. 13 Blue Devils. After a tight battle all four quarters, two goals late in the fourth quarter from freshman Sofia Chepenik pushed Clemson over the edge and gave them the victory. Emily Lamparter also impressed as she played all 60 minutes and saved nine critical shots, including four of the six free position shots from Duke. 

As a result of Chepenik and Lamparter’s impressive play last week, they each earned Clemson Lacrosse’s first ever weekly awards from the ACC and IWLCA. The ACC named Chepenik co-offensive player of the week and the IWLCA named Lamparter the national defensive player of the week. 

Clemson’s win over Duke marked the Tigers first win over both an ACC and top ranked team. Beating Duke earned Clemson a No. 14 ranking in the USA Lacrosse Magazine poll and a No. 24 ranking in the IWLCA poll. The Boston College Eagles will be the fourth ranked team that Clemson has played thus far this season. However, the Eagles will be the highest ranked team that the Tigers have faced, as they are ranked No. 4 in both the IWLCA and USA Magazine poll.

Boston College is led by Head Coach Acacia Walker-Weinstein and Assistant Coaches Jennifer Kent and Sam Apuzzo. The Eagles have several weapons on offense that the Tigers will need to contain. Jenn Medijid leads Boston College in goals with 22, while Kayla Martello and Mckenna Davis are right behind Medjid with 20 goals each. Mckenna Davis also poses a threat as a feeder, leading her team in assists with 20. Boston College has five different players represented on the Tewaaraton Watch List, namely Kayla Martello, Belle Smith, Jenn Medjid, Hollie Schleicher and Sydney Scales. 

Before taking a step back to begin treatment for Breast Cancer, Coach Kwolek will be coaching as normal for both the Boston College and upcoming Radford game.
