With ACC play in full swing, the Boston College Women’s Soccer team traveled to Tallahassee on Thursday night searching for a win against #16 Florida State. For the first time in well over a month, the Eagles conceded more than one goal, allowing three en route to a 3-0 shutout loss to the Seminoles. BC was outshot and outchanced for the entirety of the game and fell to 8-5-1 on the season and 2-3-1 in conference play.
Florida State jumped out to an early lead over Boston College, converting on a penalty kick just 14 minutes into the game. The Eagles had a few chances of their own as the half went on, but were unable to find the back of the net, With just about a minute remaining in the first half, the Seminoles struck again, converting on a tap in goal to extend their lead to 2-0.
The second half was more of the same for BC, creating a few half chances but never seriously threatening Florida State’s goal. The Seminoles put the game officially out of reach in the 64th minute when they jumped on a loose ball in the box and slid it into the net for a three goal lead. The Eagles managed a few more looks at the Florida State net and won a few corners in the last 25 minutes, but they were unable to make a late push and fell 3-0.
BC was outshot 14-9 overall and managed just three shots on net to Florida State’s seven. Alexis Bryant made three saves on the night to keep Boston College in the game for as long as possible. This was the first time the Eagle’s allowed more than one goal since their second game of the season all the way back on August 20. They will play their third straight game on the road when they return to action on Sunday October 8 to take on Miami in Coral Gables.
