COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The 10th-ranked Boston College Eagles proved too much for the University of Maryland women's soccer team in a 2-0 victory over the Terps Thursday night at Ludwig Field.
Boston College right back Hannah Cerrone scored the game's first goal and added an assist on the second Eagle score to lead BC to its 11th win of the season. The Eagles now stand at 11-3-3, 4-3-2 in the ACC, while the result drops the Terps to 5-9-3 for the year, 0-8-1 in the conference.
The Terps had the first quality chance of the match off of a Caitlin McDowell corner kick in the 17th minute. The freshman midfielder from Plano, Texas, sent the kick from the left corner into the Eagle six-yard box where junior defender Aimee Bresani got on the end of it and headed the ball straight down. Eagle goalkeeper Mae Shamir was screened out by Maryland midfielder Kelly Rozumalski and the ball appeared to have crossed over the goal line, but the referee ruled that Shamir grabbed it before it could cross over.
Shots on goal for the match were close with Boston College holding a 5-3 advantage, but those two shots proved to be the difference, as did the play of Cerrone.
A Maryland foul just outside of the 18-yard box setup Cerrone for her goal in the 27th minute. With the ball just right of center, Cerrone drilled the free kick into the upper left 90. The ball rattled off of the left post and caromed into the goal for a 1-0 Eagle lead.
That's the way the match remained until the 80th minute when Cerrone sent a corner kick from the left side into the box where Kelly Henderson was able to get on the end of it and bounce a header into the left side of the Terrapin goal.
Maryland concludes its 2007 season on Sunday, November 4, against NC State. That match is slated for a 1 p.m. start at Ludwig Field and marks the final match in the careers of Terrapin seniors Melissa Hornfeck, Ashly Kennedy, Shelley McDuff and Rozumalski.
