Kayla Treanor scored a career-high seven goals and host No. 3 Syracuse upset top-ranked North Carolina, 12-9, on Saturday.
The win is the second ever for the Orange (13-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) against the top team in the nation and ties Syracuse with the Tar Heels (12-2, 5-1) for first place in the conference.
The Orange beat then-No. 1 Florida, 14-13, in double overtime in the semifinals of the 2012 NCAA tournament.
"I thought our players performed excellent against the No. 1 team in the country," Syracuse coach Gary Gait said. "A couple of keys for the game were our possession and the few turnovers we had. We talked about it a lot this year — unforced errors — and today we didn't make them."
No. 4 Boston College 20, Virginia Tech 9: Covie Stanwick (Notre Dame Prep) had four goals and two assists for the host Eagles (11-4, 4-2 ACC) in a win over the Hokies (7-7, 0-5).
No. 14 Loyola Maryland 19, Boston University 8: Taryn VanThof tied her single-game school record by winning 15 draws and the Greyhounds (11-4, 7-0 Patriot League) beat the host Terriers (6-8, 4-3).
Marlee Paton led Loyola with a game-high seven points on four goals and three assists, while Annie Thomas (John Carroll) had three goals and three assists.
No. 20 Navy 8, Holy Cross 6: The Mids' Aimee Gennaro scored the go-ahead goal to make the score 7-6 with 19:56 left in the game, and Kaitlan Moynihan added an insurance goal with 5:16 left as host Navy (14-1, 6-1 Patriot) beat the Crusaders (5-11, 3-4).
