No. 9 Field Hockey Shuts Out Northeastern, 3-0
Sept. 29, 2013
After the two teams played almost a full half without a goal, McCoy put the Eagles on the board with 1:30 to go. Plasteras inserted to McCoy, who nailed the ball past NU goalie Becky Garner to put BC on top.
In the 53rd minute of the game, Plasteras inserted to senior back Hannah Mulvey for the stick stop. McCoy took a straight shot again for her second score of the game.
The Eagles pressured NU to keep in the ball in their offensive end and with 14 minutes to go in the game, on the free hit going in, freshman Leah Frome knocked in her first career goal as the Eagles swarmed the cage. Plasteras tallied her third assist of the day on the score and leads the team with nine on the season.
The Eagles outshot the Huskies, 10-8, and took five corners to NU's four. Sophomore goalie Leah Settipane tallied two saves on the day while Garner had four.
BC returns to action on Friday, Oct. 4 when the Eagles travel to Durham, N.H., to play New Hampshire at 4 p.m.
