CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The ninth ranked Boston College women's soccer team dominated play against Fairfield and came away with a 2-0 non-conference victory at the Newton Soccer Field. The Eagles improved to 6-0-1 on the season while Fairfield dropped to 2-4-1.
Boston College broke a scoreless tie just 13 minutes into the action. Sophomore Kelly Henderson got on end of a deflection off Chelsea Regan's header to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead. The goal was set up by a deep ball into the front of the box by junior Caroline Walden. Henderson now has two goals and one assist for five points, while Regan has two goals and two assists for a team leading six points.
Junior midfielder Caitlin Hiler would give the Eagles some breathing room as she placed a shot right over the Stags goalkeeper Brett Moran for a 2-0 lead at 57:56. Hiler's shot was from about 25-yards out and flew right below the crossbar. It was Hiler's second goal of the season.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Freshman Brittney Steinbruch (Wyckoff, N.J.) scored her team-leading eighth goal of the season as the University of Miami women's soccer team played to a 2-2 draw in double overtime at UCF on Wednesday evening.
It is the first draw between the in-state rivals in their ninth meeting, as the teams are tied at 4-4-1 in the all-time series. The Hurricanes held the 2-1 lead into the final seconds of the game, when the Golden Knights capitalized on a free kick and knocked in the equalizer with three seconds remaining in regulation.
Steinbruch, who entered the week ranked fourth in the NCAA in goals per game (1.167) and 10th in points per game (2.33), moves into a two-way tie for seventh place in UM single-season goals with eight in just her seventh game as a Hurricane.
