Terriers, Conway closed out by UConn

STORRS, Conn. -- The Boston University women's team surrendered an 89th-minute goal in falling, 1-0, to No. 15 Connecticut at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium Sunday.

BU (0-2-0) relied on the goalkeeping of Bridget Conway, who made six saves. In the 17th minute, Conway tipped a shot over the crossbar, then made two more stops over the next five minutes. In the closing minutes of the half, Conway punched a shot off the crossbar, then recovered to stop the rebound attempt.

Early in the second half, Conway stopped a point-blank shot. BU’s Rachel Bloznalis then made a play, catching a player on a breakaway and getting a foot on the shot. Alivya Wimmer made a similar defensive play soon after as the BU defense stayed strong.

Stephanie Ribeiro decided the match after getting past Julianna Chen and firing a low shot past Conway.

UConn outshot BU, 7-3. BU is 4-5-0 all-time against the Huskies.

"I thought we came to play today, and I'd like that to be what we're known for,” BU coach Nancy Feldman said. “The kids poured in a lot of effort and played as a unit and dealt with UConn's attacking players very, very well.

"Bridget had a great game. She did everything right. Even on the shot she slightly misplayed in the first half, she sticks with it. She's a confident kid and she's just going to keep getting better."
