The BC women’s soccer team continued its hot start to the season with a 4-1 win at home over Temple this afternoon to remain unbeaten at 8-0-0. The victory marked the 275th career win for head coach Alison Foley. The team put up a well-balanced attack that would yield goals from four different Eagles with eight shots on goal.
BC came out aggressive, controlling possession early and finally breaking through with a Sam Coffey penalty kick goal at 25:07. Coffey quickly set up another score with a corner kick that Kayla Jennings headed in at 30:44 for her first goal of the season.
Temple was able to see more control of the ball early in the second period and took advantage of a chance in the 60th minute when BC keeper Alexis Bryant came out of the goal for a loose ball. With BC unable to secure the ball, Temple’s Kerri McGinley put it in the open goal from 18’. This was the first goal the Eagle defense had allowed since August 17th vs. Quinnipiac.
The Eagles quickly bounced back from the Owls’ only score, and Carly Leipzig converted a second chance goal off a Temple save at 76:40. Gaby Carreiro would connect with Oliva Vaughn in front of the net for one final goal at 86:19 to seal the victory.
The Eagles return to action Wednesday night at Newton Soccer Field vs. Harvard at 7PM in their final tune up before opening ACC play at Wake Forest next weekend.
