EAGLES SEE RED
BC women dropped by Duke
DURHAM, N.C. -- The Boston College women’s team had its seven-game winning streak snapped, playing most of the game with a numerical disadvantage in losing, 3-2, to Duke in both teams’ ACC opener at Koskinen Stadium Saturday night.
The Eagles (8-1-1 overall, 0-1-0) lost goalkeeper Alexis Bryant to an 11th-minute red card, but rallied on goals by McKenzie Meehan and Hayley Dowd, before surrendering the deciding goal in the 78th minute.
Kayla McCoy converted a penalty kick, the first of her two goals, just under freshman Erin Seppi to give the Blue Devils (6-2-1, 1-0-0) a 12th-minute lead.
Dowd had a goal disallowed for offside and Meehan had a chance stopped after breaking in alone on EJ Proctor in the early going. BC tied the score in the 24th minute, Jenna Bike earning a penalty kick, Meehan converting for her 54th career goal.
Dowd’s 54th-minute goal gave BC a 2-1 lead. Then, Taylor Racioppi’s 55th-minute goal tied the score, before McCoy scored the game-winner.
