Chestnut Hill, Mass. -
The Boston College women's soccer teams ended the ninth day of preseason training with a scrimmage this afternoon against Providence at the Newton Soccer Field.
Boston College will open up the regular season on Friday, August 23 as the Eagles will host No. 2 Stanford at 7 p.m. Admission is free for all the Eagles regular season games.
BC returns eight starters from last year's team, including the three captains and key midfielders Patrice Vettori, Gibby Wagner and Kate McCarthy (five goals).
