BOSTON, Mass. – Freshman Sabrina Bryan’s first career goal came in the form of a game-winner, propelling the Hofstra University women to a 2-1 comeback victory over Boston University at Nickerson Field Sunday afternoon.
Hofstra (1-2-1) faced a 1-0 deficit at halftime after Anna Heilferty got the Terriers (1-3) on the board in the 31st minute with a high shot into the top right side of the net.
Senior Kristin Desmond scored her second goal of the season about 10 minutes into the second half to equalize at 1-1, one-timing a cross from Bryan for Bryan’s first career point. Desmond has goals in back-to-back games after scoring on a penalty kick at Columbia Friday.
Bryan gave the visitors the victory in the 64th minute, getting the ball near the right corner, dribbling around a defender into the box and firing past goalkeeper Hannah Ciolek.
Pride goalkeeper Ashley Wilson made four saves.
After a season-opening four-game road trip, Hofstra opens its home schedule against Eastern Washington at Hofstra Soccer Stadium Thursday at 7 p.m.
