Undefeated no more.
The Boston College women's soccer team dropped its first game of the season on Thursday night, losing 1-0 to the fourth-ranked Duke Blue Devils. BC is now 9-1-2 overall and 4-1-0 in the ACC, while 13-1-1 Duke takes sole possession of first place in conference with the win (5-0-1).
The Eagles outshot the Blue Devils 16-11 on the night, and went into the half tied at 0-0. Duke scored the only goal of the match at 67:34, one-timing a crossing past BC goaltender Jillian Mastroianni.
The women's team has five more regular season games -- two on the road, three at home -- before the ACC Tournament begins on October 30. BC travels to Coral Gables next Thursday, October 13 to take on the 7-4-1 Miami Hurricanes. The game at Miami is followed by a game at Tallahassee a week Sunday against the 9-4-0 Florida State Seminoles.
BC ends the regular season with a three-game home stand against North Carolina (Oct. 20), N.C. State (Oct. 23) and Wake Forest (Oct. 27). Wake is currently 3 points out of first place in the ACC, while North Carolina is 7 points out (and three behind BC).
