The Eagles took the lead three times, but conceded an equalizer in the 88th minute and had to settle for a 3-3 draw with Wake Forest on Senior Day.
N.C. State scored in the final 10 minutes of both halves, beating the Eagles, 2-0, to hand BC its second straight loss.
Olivia Vaughn tallied twice after the break and BC used a first-minute goal and a three-goal second half to power past Miami in a decisive 4-0 victory.
In a game that featured nine combined goals and three ties, BC saw its eight-game unbeaten streak come to an end at the hands of No. 6 Florida State in its first ACC game under Jason Lowe.
With three minutes left to play in Boston College women’s soccer’s match against Providence, it looked like the Eagles had a win in the bag. BC led, 1-0, thanks to a goal from Gianna Mitchell, and hadn’t conceded a goal since Sept. 1 at Princeton. That shutout streak ended, though, at an incredibly inopportune time…
Senior forward Francesca Venezia broke a scoreless deadlock in the 60th minute, and Sam Smith added an insurance goal late as BC moved to 6-0 on the year with a win over the Wildcats.
History repeated itself on Thursday night, with BC’s Gianna Mitchell scoring a second half goal that held up to secure the win over Northeastern—the exact same thing that happened in 2018.
It’s been a banner week for Boston College sports, with every fall team getting its season underway and a bulk of them going undefeated in the early going.
Under first-year head coach Jason Lowe, Boston College women’s soccer has already displayed a tendency to come out of the gate strong. In each of the first two games under Lowe, the Eagles tallied within the first 10 minutes. It’s a habit and mentality, apparently, that was inspired at least partly by the United States…
Olivia Vaughn, who sat out the whole spring, scored twice and added an assist as the Eagles surged past visiting UMass Lowell for their second win in a row.
