The Boston College women’s soccer team dropped to 0-3 today after falling to Pittsburgh by a score of 4-3. The Eagles were slightly edged out in shots in the match (9-7 SOG in favor of Pitt) and fell just short of at least coming home with a tie.
Pitt opened the scoring just 5 minutes into the game, taking the lead off a penalty kick. The Eagles followed up with 2 goals of their own however, and took a 2-1 lead into halftime. Sam Smith picked up BC’s first goal unassisted, and she then assisted on Mia Karras’s go ahead goal.
Pitt fought back with a pair of their own to open the second half, but Jenna Bike, assisted by Smith again, tied the game up at 3 late in the game. Unfortunately for the Eagles, Pitt scored under a minute later and the Panthers’ 4-3 lead held through the end of the game.
Next Thursday, the Eagles will look to turn things around with their home opener as Duke comes to town. The Blue Devils are 2-1-2 on the season, so this will be another challenge for the struggling Eagles.
