CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.– The No. 6 North Carolina Tar Heels face a road challenge against the Eagles of Boston College Saturday night.
Coming off a stinging overtime loss at home to Clemson, Carolina currently sits at 3-2-5 overall and 0-1-5 in conference.
Shockingly, the Tar Heels are somehow still in search of their maiden victory in the ACC. And maybe it will come against a BC squad with which Carolina sports an 8-3-1 all-time series record against dating back to 1981.
Despite their anemic offense, the Tar Heels can lean on their superb defensive play. UNC has only sacrificed seven goals, and that ranks second in the entire ACC.
Goalkeeper Brendan Moore still leads the conference in both save percentage at 84.1 percent and shutouts with five.
The game at Chestnut Hill will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday.
