Bears Fall to #16 Boston College, 9-2
Oct. 12, 2005
CHESTNUT HILL, MA - The Brown field hockey team (5-5) scored the first goal of the game, taking a 1-0 on 16th-ranked Boston College (8-4) less than six minutes into the contest, but the Eagles reeled off eight straight goals to cruise to a 9-2 non-league victory on Wednesday night at the Newton campus field.
The Eagles, however, answered back eight minutes later, tying the score on a penalty corner goal of its own. Boston College would score two more goals for a 3-1 lead when time was stopped for just under 20 minutes to attend to an injury to a Brown player with 7:07 left in the half.
Boston College added three more goals before the end of the first half and then opened the second frame with two straight to take an 8-1 lead with 6:51 left in the game.
Sophomore Andrea Posa (Weston, MA) scored her first career goal with 3:53 left and with 2:04 remaining the Eagles added their ninth for the 9-2 final.
Sophomore Kristen Hodavance (Emmaus, PA) earned the start in net and posted 12 saves, while allowing seven goals in 54:56. Junior Evelyn Brosi (Baltimore, MD) played the remaining 15:04 and made one save, while allowing two goals.
The Bears host Princeton this Saturday in a critical Ivy League matchup at 12:00 noon on Warner Roof. Princeton enters the game with a 4-0 League record. A Brown win on Saturday would put the Bears into a three-way tie for first place in the Ancient Eight.
