EASTON, Pa. – Two Boston University goals in the opening 45 minutes proved to be enough as the Terriers went on to a 2-0 victory over Lafayette on Senior Day at Oaks Stadium.

With the loss Lafayette drops to 5-6-1 overall and 1-4-0 in Patriot League play. BU moves to 9-3-2 on the season and 4-1 in the conference.

“I thought we made too many silly mistakes in the first half,” head coach Mick Statham said. “BU are an excellent team and a credit to the Patriot League, so you have to concentrate with what you're doing.”

The visiting Terriers (9-3-2, 4-1-0) had a couple of set pieces in the opening 15 minutes, but were unable to capitalize on the opportunities. The first was a free kick taken by Megan McGoldrick from inside 30 yards that made it on target, forcing Lafayette goalie Danielle Sedillo to make the save. The next chance came two minutes later when Kylie Strom took the attempt from a sharp angle and it caught the outside of the post before going out for a goal kick.

BU broke through in the 19th minute and took a 1-0 lead on a strike by Emma Clark that beat Sedillo to her right. Lafayette initially cleared a cross from inside the six-yard box, but Clark was waiting at the edge of the penalty area for a one-timed shot inside the far side netting.

With less than a minute to go in the half, the red-clad Terriers added a second goal. This time a centering pass from the left side by Erica Kosienski sent the ball to the penalty spot where Clare Pleuler slotted a one-timer low and inside the left post.

With the wind at its back, Boston U played a majority of the first half on the Leopards’ side of midfield and the teams went into the locker room with BU ahead 2-0.

Lafayette’s best chance of the game came off the left foot of Allie Torru in the 70th minute. Jaclyn Giordano sent a through ball to Torru on the left side and she ripped a shot aimed at the far upper corner, but BU keeper Andrea Green made a diving stop to smother the chance.

“I was very encouraged with our second half showing and hope we can gather momentum for the remaining games of the season,” Statham added.

Green finished with three saves, while Sedillo turned away five for the Leopards. The Terriers finished with a 7-3 advantage in shots on goal and a 5-1 edge in corner kicks.

Lafayette returns to action on Tuesday evening in its final non-conference game of the season at Columbia. Kickoff from New York City is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Game Notes:

Today’s match was the first meeting all-time between the two schools.

Prior to the game Lafayette’s senior class of 2014 was honored in a pregame ceremony. Catherine Galgano, Avery Jackson and Kelly Sposato along with Boston University’s seniors were recognized.
