The Northeastern women’s soccer team lost a heartbreaker to BC last Sunday, conceding with seconds left in regulation before falling 1-2 in double overtime. Breeana Koemans scored from the spot to give the Huskies a 1-0 lead, before Andrea O’Brien got on the end of a cross and put the ball in the back of the net for the equalizer. BC goalkeeper Alexis Bryant made two saves to deny Kayla Cappuzzo in the first overtime period, before McKenzie Meehan scored the game-winning header for the Eagles early in the second overtime.

“We’re disappointed,” said coach Ashley Phillips, “but we’re not disappointed in the performance, more just in the result.”

Later in the week, the women defeated BU 2-0 and UNH 2-1, bringing their record to 5-4-1. Kayla Cappuzzo registered a goal and two assists across the two games, and now has eight points in her last four matches.

Men’s Soccer: The men’s soccer team lost 0-3 to BU on Tuesday after two red cards saw the Huskies go down to nine men 33 minutes into the game. They bounced back to beat Drexel 2-0 on Saturday. Christian McKenna and Ackim Mpofu scored for NU, who got a clean sheet from keeper Jonathan Thuresson.

Women’s Volleyball: Women’s volleyball swept the New England challenge by beating Harvard and BC, after defeating UMass-Lowell earlier in the week. They are 9-4 on the season, and are currently on a six game win streak.

Field Hockey: The NU field hockey team beat Harvard 4-3 on Friday before falling to #18 BC 1-8 yesterday. Freshman Alice Batt had two goals in the win; June Curry-Lindahl had the lone goal in defeat.

Cross Country: Both women’s and men’s cross country teams competed in the Battle in Beantown on Friday. They finished 9th and 14th, respectively.
