After throttling Nebraska, BC advances to the Sweet 16 on Sunday against Illinois

Boston College's women's soccer team started the season as a bona fide national contender, racking up wins and goals early against a tough schedule. They faded back in the rankings a bit as the season went on, and found themselves in a tough bracket for the national tournament.

Yesterday, though, BC re-asserted themselves as contenders, destroying #10 Nebraska 4-1 at Nebraska's home field, punching their ticket to the NCAA Octofinals (I"m going to keep using this until it catches on).

Freshman Hayley Dowd got it started for BC in the 25th minute to give BC a 1-0 lead. It seemed for a long time that it might be the game's only goal, as the clock kept ticking, ticking, ticking with BC hanging on to their one-goal edge.

In the 73rd minute, however, McKenzie "Who Else?" Meeham scored her 19th of the season to give BC some breathing room. Gibby Wagner added a third in the 82nd to put the game away.

Nebraska picked up a consolation goal two minutes later, but Lauren Bernard added an exclamation point in the 87th to seal the 4-1 win.

BC completely dominated this game, outshooting Nebraska 30-12.

Next up for the Eagles is a tilt with Illinois on Sunday afternoon at 2 PM, also to be held in Nebraska. If they do advance to the Elite Eight, #1 Florida State likely awaits next weekend.
