Sunday Update

Here's the deal - I'm gonna try to give you a Sunday update - a wrap up of whatever happened in Terrier sports during the week.

And the inaugural update begins! Here's what happened in this last week in Terriers sports:

Men's Soccer vs. UMass - 8/31
Last Sunday featured the most devastating loss in the history of Terrier soccer. With 3 seconds left in the game UMass evened the score to send it into overtime. Then 8 seconds into the second overtime UMass launched a midfield shot that defelcted off multiple Terriers and found the back of the net. Final: 2-1 UMass (2ot)

Women's Soccer @ South Caroline - 8/31
After marching into Rhode Island, scoring one goal, and leaving, the Terriers had almost the exact opposite done to them - South Carolina won 1-0. The Terriers launched 10 shots to the Gamecocks 12, which may have been the difference. That plus BU was outsaved 6-3. Final: 1-0 USC

Women's Soccer @ Princeton - 9/5
BU scored first in he 66th minute, but couldn't hold off Princeton. The Terriers outshot and outsaved the Tigers however in the end that's not what matters. Farrell McClernon scored her first goal of the year in the losing effort. Final: 2-1 Princeton

Women's Soccer @ UConn - 9/7
Jessica Luscinski came out firing early and often. In the 10th minute she scored her first goal of the season. Just one of her 4 shots that came during the game. That proved to be enough as BU got a win they so desperately needed over the 19th ranked team in the nation. BU is now 2-3 on the season. Final: 1-0 UConn

Field Hockey @ Temple - 9/6
As mentioned in an earlier post BU lost this one in overtime in game one of the Blue Hen classic. What's staggering is that BU outshot UDel 21-6. Goalie Kim Kastuk was outsaved 10-3. It was disappointing to say the least. Final: 3-2 Templed (OT)

Field Hockey @ Delaware - 9/7
The Terriers rebounded nicely after a tough loss. Let's be real here - what loss isn't tough? Blowouts? Maybe. Anyways, freshman Giovanna Monaco scored her first collegiate goal and that was all that mattered. BU outshot UDel 7-3. They are now 2-1 on the year. Final: 1-0 BU

A pretty brutal week in Terrier sports - 2 wins to 4 losses. The great thing about September is that for at least the next eight months there are Terrier sports in some capacity every single week. Breathe in deeply. Do you taste that? That's the taste of semi-satisfaction.
