Tribe field hockey surges into national rankings, hosts Boston College on Sunday

William and Mary (5-1) ran its field hockey winning streak to five on Friday, completing a 2-0 trip to Ann Arbor, Mich., with a 4-2 victory over UC Davis (0-5).

A day after upsetting No. 7 Michigan 1-0, the Tribe went ahead 3-0 on goals by Emma MacLeod, Woodard Hooper and Estelle Hughes.

The Aggies pulled to within 3-2 before Midlothian’s Cammie Lloyd cracked a shot for a goal in the 61st minute, all but sealing the victory.

Hooper, a sophomore, earned Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week honors on Tuesday and is tied for the team lead in goals (4) with Lloyd.

W&M, now ranked 18th nationally, will host No. 10 Boston College (5-1) at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Men’s soccer

Colonial Athletic Association favorite William and Mary (2-1-2) began its conference schedule with a scoreless draw against Drexel (0-2-1) in Philadelphia.

W&M outshot the Dragons 12-4 and stayed unbeaten in its last four matches despite the frustration of starting CAA play with one point in the standings instead of three.

Tribe goalkeeper Phil Breno made a season-high four saves, three in the second half.

W&M will play at North Carolina in Cary on Wednesday.

Franny Cerny netted a hat trick as DePaul shut out William and Mary 4-0 in Chicago, leaving both teams at 4-4.

She netted goals in the 34th and 44th minutes to put the Blue Demons ahead 2-0 at halftime, then completed her hat trick in the 48th minute. Jade Eriksen-Russo scored in the 69th.

The Tribe will host UNC Greensboro 2 p.m. Sunday.
