NEWTON, Mass. — The Stony Brook University women’s team stumbled at Boston College Wednesday evening, falling 3-0 at Newton Soccer Field.
The Seawolves dropped to 2-3, while the Eagles improved to 5-0.
“For 60 minutes we were involved in a great college soccer game with both teams having some success with the ball, but also unable to completely break down the other,” Stony Brook head coach Brendan Faherty said. “Credit to Boston College for making the most of their opportunities. It’s not surprising that at this point in the season they are still undefeated.
“Our group will rest up, watch film and get back on the training field on Friday to prepare for a big match against St. John’s on Sunday evening.”
The hosts got on the board early, putting away a ball served in from the top of the 18 in the seventh minute.
Senior Julie Johnstonbaugh (Neshanic Station, N.J.) tried to get things going early for the Seawolves, but sent a header high of the crossbar 18 minutes in.
After a water break midway through the first half due to heat, sophomore Fanny Gotesson (Varnamo, Sweden) fired a shot at the goal that was stopped by the Eagles goalkeeper.
The Eagles pulled away with back-to-back goals in the 62nd and 64th minutes to take a 3-0 lead.
The Seawolves will remain on the road to face St. John’s Sunday, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m.
