– The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer team fell to No. 10 Boston University, 2-0, on Sunday afternoon in America East soccer action played at Nickerson Field.
The Wildcats fall to 5-9-0 and 3-4-0 in the America East, while the Terriers continue to solidify themselves as the top team in the conference by improving to 12-3-2 overall and a 5-0-1 conference record as they ran their unbeaten streak at Nickerson Field to 19 games.
The Terriers held the 12-4 advantage in shots on the afternoon. BU tallied the game-winning goal at 37:19 when junior forward Lauren Basham made a perfect cross to freshman midfielder Corie Halasz who made a hard shot to the lower right corner of the net past the outstretched hands out UNH goalkeeper Lynn Gugliuzza (Kenmore, N.Y./Kenmore). The goal marked the first collegiate goal of Halasz’s career.
            The Terriers added a late insurance goal in the 71st minute of play when freshman midfielder Emily Pallotta delivered a feed to senior forward Lauren Erwin who hit the underside of the post for the tally.
            Gugliuzza hasn’t allowed two goals in a match since a 2-1 loss to Hartford back on September, 28. She posted two saves in the loss, while her counterpart Stephanie Dreyer notched one save.
            UNH’s junior midfielder Katie Lutar (Guilford, Conn./Guilford) recorded two shots during the afternoon, while sophomore forwards Sara Hourihan (Lynnfield, Mass./Lynnfield) and Michelle Sheehan (Belmont, Mass./Belmont) each registered a shot in the loss.
            UNH returns to action on Wednesday (Oct. 18) for a non-conference match with Dartmouth College at 3:00 p.m. on Lewis Field. The contest marks the last regular season match and the University will honor all seven seniors for Senior Day.
