BOSTON - The Boston University women's soccer team scored early and often to secure a 6-1 victory over Lafayette on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field. Sophomore forward Erica Kosienski tallied five points on the day with two goals and an assist.

With this win, BU remains unbeaten in Patriot League play and extends its undefeated streak to six games.

The Terriers converted eight shots on net into six goals on the afternoon and limited Lafayette to just three total shots. Five different players scored for BU including Kai Miller and Clare Pleuler who each scored their first goals of the season against the Leopards.

Miller started Boston University off with a goal in the fourth minute when she knocked in Taylor Krebs' service on a corner kick. The score was Miller's second of her career and the first she has scored in the past three seasons.

Kosienski scored her first of the day in the 27th minute when she tipped in a pass from Jenna Fisher in the six-yard box. Fisher broke away down the right side and sent it to Kosienski who was running alongside her to score the eventual game-winner.

BU went into halftime with a two-goal lead, its largest at the half all season.

The Terriers came out firing in the second period and Pleuler notched the third goal of the game just over 10 minutes into the half. Jamie Turchi sent a through ball from midfield to Pleuler, who dribbled ahead of her defenders and easily shot it past the Lafayette goalkeeper.

Kosienski would make it the most goals scored by BU all season just under four minutes later when she controlled the ball inside the 18-yard box and shot it far side to increase the Terrier lead to 4-0.

Boston U. wasn't finished yet, however and added another to the tally three minutes later. Kosienski beat the Lafayette defense into the 18-yard box and passed it up to Rachel Blauner, who was able to find the back of the net and give the Terriers a 5-0 advantage.

Krebs, who assisted on the first goal of the game, would go on to score the final BU goal in the 66th minute when she brought the ball all the way down the right sideline, controlled it in the box and then sent it over the head of the goalie.

The Leopards managed to score in the closing minutes of the game but their efforts would be too late and BU earned its third victory in conference play.

The Terriers are back in action on Tuesday when they finish their out-of-conference schedule against Dartmouth at home on Nickerson Field at 7 p.m.
