No 10 Women's Soccer Captures 2-1 Win over Harvard
Sept. 9, 2007
CHESTNUT HILL, MA -
Boston College freshman Brooke Knowlton broke a tie game with her first collegiate goal at 74:18 to give the Eagles a 2-1 win over Harvard in a non-conference match at the Newton Soccer Field. The Eagles are 3-0 in non-conference play, while Harvard is now 1-2-1.
In the first three games of the season, Boston College has had six different goal scorers and outscored their opponents 6-1.
With the scored tied at 1-1, Knowlton came from the week side and knocked him a pass from freshman Natalie Crutchfield. The play began when junior Brianna Wilson-Bryne won a loose ball on the right side at mid-field. She sent the ball to the middle where sophomore Kelly Henderson avoided a Harvard defender and then slid the ball to the end line to the right of the Crimson goalkeeper Laura Mann. Crutchfield sent a low ball cross goal and found Knowlton alone for the game-winning goal.
Harvard went up just nine minutes into the game when Gina Wideoff scored on a cross from Christina Hagner. Boston College responded two minutes later as freshman Chelsea Regan blasted a shot from 24-yards out over the out-stretched hands of Mann.
Boston College out shot the Crimson, 13-7, as Regan led the Eagles with four shots. The Eagles also dominated on corner kicks, 7-2. Junior Sarah Buonomo earned her third win of the season and ninth in her career. She had five saves including a diving save on a set piece by Harvard early in the first half. Mann had a solid game in goal for Harvard as she finished with eight saves.
Boston College will be back in action on Wednesday, September 12 when the Eagles host Boston University (4 p.m.).
