NEWTON, Mass. - For the third-straight match the UW women's soccer team went to overtime in the NCAA Tournament but this time fell to Boston College, 1-0, in the first overtime period to end the Huskies' season in the Elite 8.
The Huskies end the season with a 13-9-2 record and equaled Washington's best-ever finish in the Elite 8. Five seniors played their final game in a Husky uniform tonight, Kellye Joswick, Jane Mitchell, McKenna Waitley, Kendyl Pele and Hannah Greig.
"This game was everything I thought it would be," said head coach Lesle Gallimore. "Our team has been extremely good road warriors during this tournament and we've battled and fought and we knew coming in against this BC team that we would have our hands full. I felt that it was a hard fought game by both teams and a well played game. I couldn't be more proud of my team for the number of chances that we created."
Hannah Cerrone scored the game-winning off of a corner kick in the 96th minute. She hit it from the right side to the left post as the balled was tipped off of the UW goalkeeper, junior Jorde LaFontaine-Kussmann (Lakewood, Wash.).
LaFontaine-Kussmann made five saves in the game. Washington took 17 shots, five on goal and outshot BC 9-6 in the first half.
Junior Alex Webber (Poway, Calif.) led the way with five shots and three great attempts on goal. Junior Kate Deines (Issaquah, Wash.) and Mitchell (San Diego, Calif.) each had three shots.
Boston College will advance to its first-ever College Cup next weekend to face No. 1 overall seed and undefeated Stanford. Ohio State will face Notre Dame in the other semifinal.
