Bounces go Eagles' way

[MARYLAND-BOSTON COLLEGE] No. 6 Boston College remained unbeaten, rallying from 1-0 down with the tying goal in the 88th minute and the overtime winner 10 minutes later to beat No. 9 Maryland, 2-1, in ACC action for Coach Alison Foley's 200th career victory.

The Terrapins (7-2-2) were two minutes away from shutting out the visiting Eagles (7-0-2) when Kristen Mewes sent a long ball from the left side into the Maryland box where it bounced off of a Terrapin defender and over goalie Yewande Balogun, tying the score at 1-1 in the 88th minute.

"This one is a little tough to swallow," said Maryland coach Brian Pensky. "We thought for much of the game we did all the right things and thought we were in position to win the game. We got a good goal from Hayley [Brock] in the first half and we felt like we really slowed their offense down in the second half. We all know that sometimes things just happen and that was the case in the game-tying goal. But our team should be proud of its perseverance, effort and concentration. We have nothing to hang out heads about tonight."

The game-winner came in the 98th minute when BC's Casey Morrison sent a long ball into the penalty area, where it took a big bounce over several players and Vicki DiMartino was able to get a touch on it and knock it into the Maryland goal.
