July 30, 2014
Chestnut Hill, MA -
The Boston College women's soccer team released the 2014 game schedule this afternoon. The Eagles are set to host eight home teams at the Newton Soccer Complex next season. The Eagles have a tough 19 game schedule, including against 10 teams that advanced to the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
Boston College will host nine teams including Florida State, Clemson, Harvard, South Florida and Notre Dame.
After hosting Colgate at home, Boston College will go on a six game road trip which begins with the "Battle of Comm. Ave" at BU on August 24. The Eagles will head to Florida to play Jacksonville and North Florida to play on August 29 and 31. BC will remain on the road for three more games, including Northeastern on Sept. 3, UW Milwaukee on Sept. 5 and Illinois State on Sept. 7.
Boston College returns home for five consecutive home games. Harvard will be the first team BC will face after the long road trip on Sept. 12. Historically the Crimson and Eagles play a hard fought close match. The overall series between the two teams gives BC a, 5-4 edge.
BC will then welcome South Florida on Sept. 18, followed by the first ACC showdown with Florida State. Again, this series is traditionally a one-goal game. The two teams last met in the 2013 NCAA Tournament in the Elite Eight round with Florida State earning the win.
Former Big East foe Pittsburgh returns to the Heights on Sept. 25 followed by Clemson on Sept. 28.
The Eagles will travel to Syracuse to play in the first of three consecutive ACC road games on October 5. On Thursday, October 9, Boston College will play Virginia followed by a trip to Louisville on October 12.
After one home match against NC State on October 19, BC will head south to play at Wake Forest on Oct. 23 and at Duke on October 26. And fittingly, the Eagles will end the regular a season hosting Notre Dame on Sunday, Nov. 2.
BC head coach Alison Foley is in her 18th season at Boston College and is the winningest coach in program history with 225 victories. Foley has led the Eagles to 11 consecutive NCAA tournaments and 13 overall in her career at the Heights.
