BOSTON – Freshman goalkeeper Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) made a career-high 12 saves, but the University of New Hampshire women's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to Boston University at Nickerson Field on Sunday afternoon in the team's America East opener.
The Wildcats fall to 4-5-2 on the season, including 0-1-0 in America East play, while the Terriers improve to 6-5-0 overall and 1-0-0 in the conference.
The Terriers struck 19:22 into the match when Emma Clark's long pass set up a breakaway for Lisa Kevorkian, who made good on her chance and beat Correa for her league-leading seventh goal of the season to give her team the 1-0 lead.
The game stayed that way until late in the 50th minute when Bedford, N.H., native Jessica Luscinski scored from 22 yards out off a restart to make it 2-0.
BU goalkeepers Kelly King and Alice Binns each played a half in net, with Binn making the only stop of the afternoon.
The Terriers outshot UNH, 30-4, including 15-1 in the second, which kept Correa, UNH's America East Player of the Game, busy in net. BU also held a 9-2 advantage in corner kicks.
The Wildcats return to action Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 4:30 p.m. when they wrap up non-conference play with a trip to Brown University. The next home game for the 'Cats is Sunday, Oct. 3 at 12 p.m. when they play host to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County at Lewis Fields.
