BC Women's Soccer Plays to Scoreless Tie with New Hampshire
DURHAM, N.H. - The University of New Hampshire and Boston College women's soccer teams played to a scoreless tie Tuesday afternoon at Lewis Field. The Eagles are now 7-5-2 overall and 4-5 in the Big East, while UNH moves to 2-12-2 on the year.
Boston College controlled most of the play throughout the game and held a 13-2 shot advantage and an 11-2 edge in corner kicks. The visitors also created more dangerous scoring opportunities, one of which was when sophomore Janice Collein hit the crossbar in the final minute of the second overtime.
UNH junior goalkeeper Lorien Snellings finished with 13 saves, including consecutive spectacular ones to deny Collein and freshman Sarah Powell early in the second half.
The Wildcats played evenly with the Eagles in the first half but couldn't produce shots from their opportunities, which continued to plague them for the remainder of the game. One of UNH's best chances was produced by freshman Michelle Thornton, whose bid was stopped by BC keeper Courtney Schaeffer (two saves).
This was the fifth straight meeting between the schools to go into overtime and is the second scoreless game in the series history (the other was in 1986), which stands in BC's favor, 7-5-3.
Boston College returns to action on Friday when it hosts Rutgers at 3 p.m.
