BC remains perfect in ACC

[TOP 25 SPOTLIGHT] No. 5 Boston College is quietly putting together another stellar season. The Eagles, who reached the Women's College Cup for the first time in 2010, are the only remaining unbeaten team in the ACC.

The Eagles are 8-0-2, having beaten No. 7 Virginia, No. 11 Maryland and Virginia Tech in their first three games of the ACC season.

BC's only blemishes are ties with Boston University (1-1) in its opener and with Syracuse (0-0).

Alicia Blose's golden goal led BC past Virginia Tech, 2-1, on Sunday afternoon.

Blose's goal came after goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts collided with Stephanie McCaffrey outside the box. McCaffrey got up and sent the ball into the top of the box, where Blose one-timed a left-footed shot into the goal.

"Thank god it was Alicia on that ball," said BC coach Alison Foley. "She is one of the most calm players we have and handled the situation perfectly."

Kristen Mewis had the first goal against the Hokies with her team-high fifth goal of the season.

The win completed a two-game road trip with two overtime victories. The Eagles defeated Maryland, 2-1, in overtime on Thursday night for Foley's 200th career win.
