No. 9 Women's Soccer Captures 3-0 Victory over Northeastern
Sept. 21, 2007
Chapel Hill, NC -
The Boston College women's soccer team continued to roll as the Eagles cruised to a 3-0 victory over cross-town rival Northeastern. The Eagles improved to 7-0-1 and do not play again until they travel to Clemson on Sunday, Sept. 30. Northeastern dropped to 2-3-1 on the season.
Boston College has not been scored upon in seven of eight games this season. The Eagles have gone 470 minutes and five games without letting up a goal. Against Northeastern the stingy BC defense allowed only two shots on goal, while the offense registered 18 shots. The Eagles also had 10 corner kicks and shutout the Huskies on corners.
The Eagles got on the board early as junior Caitlin Hiler was a recipient of a beautiful pass in the box from sophomore Gina DiMartino. Hiler was alone and one-touched the ball by the diving Huskies goalkeeper Annie Petrofsky (five saves) just one minute into play. Hiler leads the Eagles in points with seven (3 goals, 1 assist).
DiMartino notched her second goal of the season off a beautiful pass from freshman Hannah Cerrone in the 11th minute of play. DiMartino now has two goals and two assists for six points this season.
Sophomore goalkeeper Mae Shamir made her Boston College debut in the second half. The Huskies only real threat came in the 67th minute when Liza Rebello broke in on a long ball. With two BC defenders by Rebello's side, Shamir came out and slid the Huskies forward shot wide to record her first collegiate save.
