Congratulations to the 24th ranked Boston College Eagles women's soccer team which notched a 3-2 victory over the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles on Thursday night. A couple of firsts on the night -- it was BC's first victory over the Seminoles in program history. BC also became the first ACC team to score a goal against Florida State this season (!). The Noles had previously shut out nine straight teams before last night's loss to BC.
The Eagles got goals from Kate McCarthy, Stephanie McCaffrey and Kristie Mewis. Victoria DiMartino had two assists.
Boston College improves to 10-5-2 overall and 4-4 in the uber competitive ACC. Florida State falls to 14-1, 7-1 in conference.
The Eagles have two regular season games left before heading off to the ACC Tournament. BC's next home game is on Sunday, October 21 as the Eagles host Miami at 1 PM on Senior Day. BC then travels to Charlottesville to end the regular season against the Virginia Cavaliers on October 25.
With two regular season games remaining, BC earned a critical three points in the conference standings.
1. Florida State (7-1-0) -- 21 points
2. Maryland (6-2-1) -- 19 points
3. Duke (5-3-2) -- 17 points
4. Wake Forest (5-2-1) -- 16 points
4. North Carolina (5-2-1) -- 16 points
6. Virginia (4-3-1) -- 13 points
7. Boston College (4-4-0) -- 12 points
8. Virginia Tech (3-4-1) -- 10 points
8. Miami (3-4-1) -- 10 points
10. Clemson (0-9-0) -- 0 points
11. N.C. State (0-8-0) -- 0 points
BC earned three points to retain sole possession of 7th place in the conference standings. The Eagles will have the chance to finish as high as third should they take care of both Miami and Virginia and a few things break their way. Duke, currently in third place, completed their ACC schedule last night, falling to North Carolina. Like BC, Wake Forest and North Carolina have two games remaining, including against one another this Sunday. Virginia goes to Virginia Tech on Sunday and hosts BC in the regular season finale.
