NEWTON, Mass. - The University of Maryland women's soccer team lost a 2-1 decision at No. 14 Boston College Friday night at the Newton Soccer Field.
The Terps took a 1-0 lead in the ninth minute of play on Lauren Gamble's third goal of the season. The play began with the second of two-consecutive corner kicks for the Terps. Sophomore Kailia Sciascia sent the corner into the Eagles' 18-yard box from the right side of the field. The ball bounced to junior co-captain Ashly Kennedy, who was able to get a head on it and send it toward the BC goal. That shot was blocked, but the rebound went directly to Gamble, who had fought her way to the front of the net. The redshirt-sophomore one-timed the ball with her right foot into the net for the Terrapin goal.
That lead was short-lived for Maryland as the Eagles tied the match in the 23rd minute. Melissa Gimple scored on a set piece that found the left corner of the Terrapin goal.
The game remained tied at 1-1 until Brianna Wilson-Bryne scored the game-winner in the 57th minute off of a cross from Jenny Mauer.
With the loss, Maryland finishes its season with an overall record of 5-9-4 and a 1-6-3 record in Atlantic Coast Conference play.
"It's always tough when the season ends - the finality hurts" said Maryland head coach Brian Pensky. "Especially when it doesn't end the way we want it to. I am excited about the future of this program and there are plenty of positives to take with us as we move forward. But it's going to take a lot of hard work on the part of both the players and coaches."
The game marked the final appearance for seniors Nikki Resnick and Sarah Sample. Resnick finishes her career near the top of every career goalkeeping category at Maryland. The Boca Raton, Fla., native ranks second all-time in saves (353), goals against average (1.16) and shutouts (19).
