Since then, the Orange (4-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) have lost two-straight. Following a loss on Friday to No. 19 Virginia, SU couldn’t get by Boston College (7-0, 1-0) on the road Sunday in Chestnut Hill, 4-3. Things got off to a rocky start for the Orange as Boston College’s duo of Dasha Possokhova and Elene Tsokilauri took down SU’s Sofya Golubovskaya and Sofya Treshcheva, 6-3. While Gabriela Knutson and Miranda Ramirez were able to win their match, 7-5, Dina Hegab and Guzal Yusupova would then drop their matchup to give up the doubles point.No. 43 Knutson then struggled against BC’s Yufei Long, losing in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. Already up 2-0, Boston College collected another point as Ramirez lost in three sets. Ramirez won her first set 6-3 before losing the next two, 6-3 and 6-4. But then SU made a run. No. 92 Golubovskaya took Kylie Wilcox into three sets and won 6-4. Yusupova also was forced into three sets but came out with a critical 7-5 third set win. Down 3-2, Treshcheva pulled out a win in straight sets — 6-3, 6-2. That put the match in the hands of Hegab and Boston College’s Laura Lopez.
