BC needed a win over Pittsburgh and a loss by either Louisville or Virginia and got both of them, rolling to a 7-0 shutout of the visiting Panthers while the Cardinals fell to Virginia Tech around the same time.
Jenna Bike drew a penalty kick and then scored the game-winner, powering the Eagles to an upset victory over No. 7 Florida State to tie the program record of most consecutive victories.
The Eagles scored two goals off Sam Coffey corner kicks in the first 20 minutes, before buckling down defensively and allowing Syracuse just five shots in a dominant 3-0 win to open ACC play.
Sam Coffey accounted for four goals with her powerful right foot, and two came off the head of Gianna Mitchell in the box as BC rolled to a 5-0 shutout of visiting Albany.
The Eagles have plenty of returners—including two that’ve recovered from injuries that cost them all of 2017—and an impressive recruiting class that bodes well for the 2018 campaign.
