The Eagles are onto the second round.

The Boston College women's soccer team got goals from (who else) McKenzie Meehan and Lauren Bernard as the Eagles defeated Northeastern, 2-0, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. With the win, the Eagles improve to 11-9-1 on the year.

Meehan scored her 18th goal of the season, which ties the school record for goals in a single season. Mary Guarino also had 18 goals in 1999, her senior season.

The Eagles controlled the game throughout and only allowed the Huskies to take two shots all game. BC had an overwhelming 21-2 edge in shots and 7-1 lead in shots on net.

Boston College is on to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and will next play at Nebraska (19-3-1) on Friday, November 22. The second-seeded Cornhuskers were a 4-0 winner over Southeastern Louisiana on Friday night. Freshman Jaycie Johnson scored all four Nebraska goals, becoming just the fifth player in NCAA Tournament history to score four goals in a tournament match and the first freshman to accomplish the feat.

The 10th-ranked Huskers have won 10 straight and won 17 of its last 18 matches for the first time since 2000. Nebraska is 16-10 all-time in the NCAA Tournament. Boston College improves to 20-15-4 all-time in its 17th NCAA Tournament appearance.
