The Nebraska soccer season came to an end on Friday as the No. 10 Huskers were eliminated in the NCAA Tournament Second Round by Boston College, 4-1, at the Nebraska Soccer Field, ending their season at 19-4-1.
Boston College (12-9-1) had too much offense, getting 30 shot attempts, including 11 on net, both of which are season highs for an NU opponent. BC took a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute. Scores in the 74th, 82nd minutes, made it 3-0 Eagles, before Mayme Conroy scored the Huskers lone goal in the 85th minute. BC answered two minutes later for the final tally.
“They’re an excellent team. We knew that going in. I know they had some more losses than other teams, but if you look at their losses – two to North Carolina, one to Florida State, one to Virginia, Virginia Tech, Stanford, Notre Dame – it’s maybe not a realistic record for them,” said Nebraska coach John Walker. “But they were an excellent team. They passed the ball well. They had two strikers that were very dangerous. They were the better team today. There’s no excuses. They just executed a little better than us. Once the game opened up in the second half, that’s really not the way we wanted the game to go either. Full credit to them.”
