Afternoon Quickie: BC Baseball in Beanpot Consolation; Lax Hosts Finale

Afternoon quickie

Note: Please keep in mind that it is raining, and one or all of these events may face postponement/cancellation. See the BC Athletics Twitter account for up-to-date information.

Boston College baseball is coming off of a big ACC sweep of Wake Forest, pulling back to within one game of the eighth and final spot in the 2012 ACC Tournament. Today’s contest, however, counts for nothing more than a little bit of non-conference pride. At 3pm at BC’s Commander Shea Field, the Eagles will host the Northeastern Huskies in the Beanpot consolation game.

On April 10 in Lowell, Boston College lost to Harvard, 5-2. The aforementioned Crimson will play UMass for the title, which was won last season by BC. With a win, the Eagles would earn their 20th victory of the season.

The women’s lacrosse team plays its final home game of the season at 4pm as they host New Hampshire in Newton.

It has been a decent overall season for the Eagles, holding the #18 national rank with a 9-8 record. Their ACC record of 1-4, however, puts them in last place in the conference. The Wildcats, of course, are a non-conference opponent.

Women’s lacrosse has already played in the ACC Tournament and was defeated on April 20 by Virginia, therefore making it the most-likely final game of their season, unless they somehow qualify for the 16-team NCAA Tournament field.

At the same time as women’s lacrosse plays, the softball team will be on the road in Providence to face the Friars for an out-of-conference contest. It’s their last regular season road trip of the season, with the originally-scheduled last away game, at Bryant, having already been cancelled.

The ladies are looking to finish the season strong, putting together a 22-26 record to this point but only having gone 2-16 in the ACC. That clearly means BC has gone 20-10 outside of league play, so with any luck, they’ll pick up the victory — if the game is played, that is.
