'Historical moment' for Eagles

[NORTH CAROLINA-BOSTON COLLEGE] No. 4 Boston College twice came back from a goal down to beat top-ranked North Carolina, 3-2, Thursday before 1,800 fans in Chapel Hill. It was the first time the Eagles have ever beaten UNC.

"I thought the girls came out confident in the second half," said BC coach Alison Foley. "To score three goals at UNC in the second half showed some mental toughness. This is a historical moment for the program, and we are certainly proud of the team for the great effort and accomplishment.''

BC sophomore Victoria DiMartino scored in the 75th minute to give the Eagles first victory over UNC in 12 games.

Twice freshman Crystal Dunn, who has been moved to midfield from the backline, scored to put the Tar Heels ahead, and twice BC came back, first on a goal by Kristen Mewis set up by DiMartino and then on Alaina Beyar's first goal of the season.

BC also missed a penalty kick by Hannah Cerrone, whose attempt towards the low right corner was stopped UNC's freshman goalkeeper, Anna Sieloff.

Despite conceding three goals in a half for the first time in 11 years, Carolina coach Anson Dorrance tried to look on the positive side.

"There's no way we can afford to give up three goals and expect to beat anyone, so I was certainly disappointed in that," he said. "But there were a lot of things I did like. [Boston College] had a veteran roster and I feel like for the majority of the game, we were riding them. If you look at the shot differential [17-9] and corner kicks [7-5], we did some good things. So I was not entirely disappointed."
