Boston University slips by women's soccer 2-0
Oct. 13, 2011
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Goals by Jamie Turchi and Lina Cords propelled No. 20 Boston University to a 2-0 win over the Stony Brook women's soccer team on Thursday at LaValle Stadium.
The Terriers (13-2-1, 6-0-0 AE) scored their first goal within three minutes of halftime and added a second only five minutes after the restart to gain the upper hand in the match.
Turchi scored her first of the season, the eventual game winner, after a cross by Taylor Krebs deflected off a Stony Brook defender and fell to the BU midfielder with an open goal in front of her. Cords then blasted one past sophomore Chelsea Morales (Temecula, Calif.) from almost 30 yards out in the 51st minute to double the lead.
Stony Brook (4-10-1, 2-3-1 AE) played an even first half with the No. 20 Terriers and nearly went in front on several occasions. Junior Sa'sha Kershaw (Baltimore, Md.) was played in alone on goal by junior Taryn Schoenbeck (Newark, Del.), but her attempt was blocked aside by BU keeper Alice Binns in the 11th minute. Three minutes later, Kershaw had another great chance with a flick header off a Julianne Palm (Stilwell, Kansas) free kick, but again Binns was in position to make the stop.
Boston University outshot the Seawolves by an 18-9 margin and attempted five corner kicks to Stony Brook's three. Morales made seven stops for the hosts, while Binns turned aside five shots to earn the shutout.
The Seawolves have two games remaining on the regular season schedule. After a bye this weekend, Stony Brook resumes America East play on Thursday, Oct. 20 at Maine, before returning home for Senior Day on Oct. 23 vs. Albany.
