– Closing out its non-conference slate down Storrow Drive, the Boston University women's soccer team continued its trend of providing late-game heroics, as they knotted the score at one-all in the 89th minute before Lauren Adelman
delivered the game-winning goal in the 96th minute to guide the Terriers to a 2-1 victory Tuesday night at Jordan Field.
Adelman volleyed in a corner kick by Ann Marie Jaworski
, lifting a shot into the upper right corner of the net to guide BU to its fifth straight victory.
How It Happened
- Granted two corner kicks in the 10th minute, Harvard cashed in on the latter, as Leah Mohammadi bended a direct shot into the back of the net.
- Kelly Harris roped a left-footed strike from 25 yards out in the 39th minute that was right below the crossbar, but the Crimson keeper got her fingertips on the ball to preserve the lead.
- Chelsea Churchill and Chloee Sagmoe nearly put away through balls in the closing minutes of the first half, though the Crimson keeper made diving saves on both attempts to hold the scoreboard at 1-0.
- BU outplayed the Crimson in the second half, posting a 6-4 shot advantage, and finally broke through in the 89th minute.
- With time winding down, Anna Heilferty's corner kick that bended in a similar fashion to Mohammadi's was too much for the Crimson's keeper to handle, as the ball dropped out of her hands and past the goal line.
- The Terriers continued to press as overtime began, putting the wheels in motion for another cardiac finish.
- In the 96th minute, Jaworski lined a serve towards the center of the box that Lily Perryman made contact with before Adelman came swooping in to bury the ball into the back of the net.
- Tuesday marked the fourth time BU has needed overtime, and the first time the match did not end in a double overtime draw.
- Amanda Fay earned her second win of the season in net, finishing with three saves.
- BU finished with a 17-10 advantage in shots and an 8-2 command in corner kicks.
- BU started three freshmen, while four other first-year players saw the field.
- The Terriers will venture outside of Boston for the first time in nearly a month as they visit Loyola Maryland on Saturday, Oct. 13 for a 1 p.m. match.
