NEWTON, Mass. – Senior Lili Farcas‘ 52nd-minute goal propelled the University of Michigan women’s soccer team to a 1-0 win over Boston College on Thursday night (Aug. 25) at Newton Field.
Michigan (2-1) defeated Boston College (2-1) 11-10, with Farkas’ first goal of the year coming from an assist from an older colleague Dan Wolfe.
The first half was as even as could be, with both teams sitting goalless at the break and even shooting to seven apiece. Nino boasted four saves while the Eagles had three corners to the Wolverines.
UM came out of halftime aggressively, earning two corners in the first five minutes.
The work paid off in the 52nd minute as a diploma student Meredith Haakenson‘s pace of work resulted in a ball played by Wolfe at the top of the box. Farkas received the pass at the top of the box and ended their second record of the season down the left to give UM a 1-0 advantage and eventual victory.
