Stony Brook Loss Gives Terriers Another Title
Oct. 23, 2009
The Boston University womens soccer team (11-5-2, 6-1 America East) has claimed its third straight America East regular season title as a result of Stony Brooks 4-0 loss to Maine Thursday afternoon.
The Terriers, who close out their regular season on Sunday with UMBC, will host a semifinal match-up on Sunday, Nov. 1.
With the Terriers earning their seventh regular season title since 2000, they will receive a first round bye. Last year, after defeating Maine, 1-0, in the semifinals, BU defended its conference crown with a 2-1 win over Stony Brook.
The story of this season has been BUs diverse offensive lineup, which has produced a conference-best 32 goals. Thirteen different Terriers have scored and eight have tallied multiple goals. Sophomore Jessica Luscinski leads the team with 16 points on four goals and eight assists, and she is followed by seniors Emily Pallotta and Farrell McClernon with 14 points apiece.
McClernons three points on Wednesday evening against Bryant pushed her into eighth among BUs all-time scoring leaders as she has now totaled 49 in her career, while Pallotta cracked the top 10 on the list with 43 over the last three and a half years. Luscinskis eight assists sit alone in fourth for a single season, and she is now three away from tying Deidre Enos eight-year-old record.
Head coach Nancy Feldman has won more America East championships than any other AE coach.
