Freshman Sigrid Aas netted her second goal of the season and goalie Lena Perry logged eigth saves in the final game of the East Coast trip.

"Beginning of the season, our first Friday and Sunday against two top 25 ranked teams. We take some great postives from not only this game but the whole weekend," said head coach Kerri Scroope. "The girls never gave up and I am proud of their continued fight. Connecticut was a great result and we have a lot to build on.  I am proud of these kids and the effort they continue to give."

In the 13th minute Loren Landrus fired off a shot that just bounced off the post, keeping Pacific scoreless. Going the other way just two minutes later the Eagles found a way to convert off a corner kick that midfielder Kayla Jennings headed in past goalie Lena Perry, giving the Eagles the 1-0 lead. Boston College added another score in the 23rd minute, this time on a shot from 18 yards out that just made it around the far post.

Boston College would add three more goals within a nine-minute span to go up 5-0 in the contest, including another score on header from a corner kick.
