As you’ve been busy moving in, Northeastern’s student-athletes have been competing across the country. Here’s a quick recap of last week’s action:

8/28: Women’s Field Hockey

Northeastern defeated California 3-2 in an overtime thriller. Senior Natalie Stewart scored the game winner in OT from an assist from fellow senior Alyssa Carlson to take her team to victory in Berkley.

8/28: Women’s Soccer

After a two hour delay due to lightning concerns, Northeastern held on for as long as they could against the No. 16 ranked Texas Tech before giving up two goals in the second half in a 2-0 Red Raider victory.

9/2: Women’s Volleyball

Northeastern was defeated 0-3 by Washington State in its first match of the Long Beach State/UC Irvine Mizuno Invitational. The Huskies were unable to compete with the Washington State team that swept them by winning all three of the first sets.

9/2: Women’s Soccer

Northeastern was able to outlast La Salle in a 4-3 grind out victory at McCarthy Stadium last Friday. Redshirt junior Taylor Caparo notched two goals while sophomore Hannah Rosenblatt knocked down the game winner with seven minutes remaining.

9/2: Women’s Field Hockey

Northeastern fell just short in a 2-1-overtime loss to No. 17 ranked Boston University. BU has one the last three straight matchups against the Huskies, despite Northeastern leading the all-time series 6-4.

9/2: Men’s Soccer

In a game that could best be described as a near stalemate, Northeastern senior Khesanio Hall netted the game winner a minute into double overtime to give the Huskies a 1-0 OT victory over Saint Joseph’s.

9/2: Womens Volleyball

Northeastern’s late game rally fell short in their four set, 1-3 loss to tournament host UC Irvine. A notable milestone for the Huskies was junior Kristen Walding recording her 1500th career assist in the second set.

9/3 : Womens Volleyball

Despite Northeastern’s best efforts in forcing a fifth set, the Huskies were defeated by California in day two of the Long Beach State / UC Irvine Mizuno Invitational. The two teams alternated set win’s until California fifth set, deciding the 3-2 victory.

9/4: Men’s Soccer

In what was the Huskies toughest test of their young season thus far,  Northeastern was defeated 3-0 by Temple at the new Temple Sports Complex. Northeastern ended up splitting their series in Philadelphia after their 1-0 victory over Saint Joseph’s two days prior.

9/4: Women’s Soccer

Saint Joseph’s Emily Gingrich had a career performance, netting two goals off corner kicks, including the game-winner with 8:29 remaining, to give St. Joseph’s the 2-1 win over Northeastern at Sweeney Field.

9/4: Women’s Field Hockey

After taking an early 2-0 first half lead, Northeastern allowed three straight second half goals from the University of Vermont to suffer a 3-2 loss at the hands of UV.
