The Boston College women's soccer team lost to No. 3 Florida State, 4-0, in the quarterfinals of the 2013 NCAA Tournament on Friday afternoon. The Eagles finished the season at 13-10-1, while Florida State advances to the College Cup for the seventh time in the program history. FSU is now 22-1-3.

"Today we met a really formidable opponent, one that we are really familiar with and I think Florida State did a good job with their system. We sat a little in the first half and then we decided to chase it in the second half a bit more and they got the better half of the second half for sure,'' said Boston College head coach Alison Foley, who has won more games in program history than any other women's soccer coach at the Heights.

The first 15 minutes FSU held possession with the shots at 2-1 the Seminoles. BC's senior Gibby Wagner had the first shot of the game.

FSU broke through in the 35th minute when Kassey Kallman headed the ball to the inside left of the post from a long ball from Marta Bakowska-Mathews. It was her second goal of the season.

The Eagles had a good chance at the end of the half on a free kick in the attacking third of the field. The Seminoles spoiled any chance of BC evening up the game. FSU led, 1-0, at the half and had a 3-1 edge on shots on goal. The Seminoles earned the only corner kick in the half.

Boston College came out in the second half with an offensive formation. The attacking formation backfired as Florida State went up, 2-0, in the 59th minute. Michaela Hanh struck with a shot from 20-yards out. The lead grew when Bakowska-Mathews scored in the 69th minute of the match. Florida State extended the lead when the Eagles dropped a Seminole forward in the box and a penalty kick was awarded in the 71st minute of the match. Bakowska-Mathews converted the PK and finished the day with two goals and an assist.

FSU had 10 shots on goal, while BC had two. BC's McKenzie Meehan was held in check while Lauren Bernard had two shots in the game for the Eagles.
