Oct. 14, 2007
Tallahassee, FL -
The Boston College women's soccer team lost its second straight Atlantic Coast Conference game of the season on a late goal. The Eagles fell to the Seminoles, 1-0, on a penalty kick by FSU forward Mami Yamaguchi in the 82nd minute of play on Sunday afternoon.
Boston College is now 8-2-3 overall and 1-2-2 in the ACC, while Florida State is now 9-3-2 overall and 4-1-1 in the conference. BC will host reigning National Champion North Carolina on Thursday, October 18 at 7 p.m. at the Newton Soccer Field at the Newton Campus.
Florida State received the penalty kick in the 82nd minute of play when a Boston College player was whistled for tripping Amanda DeCosta in the box. The Seminoles went to Mami Yamaguchi for the penalty kick and she calmly placed it by a diving BC goalkeeper Sarah Buonomo for a 1-0 Florida State lead.
The Eagles had two chances in the final two minutes of action. Off a corner kick, Caroline Walden shot was saved by the Seminoles goalkeeper Erin McNulty in the 88th minute. BC sophomore Kelly Henderson had a header off a corner kick but the shot just went wide.
Boston College's best chance came from Henderson at 46:42 in the game. The Eagles midfielder placed a shot at the near post and McNulty came up big for the Seminoles. Minutes later, Yamaguchi went far post with a shot on Buonomo and the Eagles goalkeeper made a diving save to keep the game knotted at 0-0.
Buonomo finished with five saves, while McNulty had three saves.
