LATE CORNER DOOMS VCU, 2-1

ALBANY, N.Y. – Boston University's Nicole van Oosterom scored on an extended time corner in the 70th minute to give the Terriers a 2-1 win over hard-luck Virginia Commonwealth University Sunday at the Sports Imports Capital Classic Sunday at Alumni Field.

Marle van Dessel (Oisterwijk, Netherlands) tallied her first goal of the year for the Rams (0-2) off a short corner in the eighth minute of the game.
 
Boston's Andrea Greene provided the equalizer on a feed from Leslie Zules in the 20th minute. The game remained tied until Boston was granted a corner as time expired.
 
Despite the loss, the Rams second close defeat of the weekend, VCU Head Coach Kelly McQuade is encouraged by her team's play.
 
"It was, without a doubt, the best hockey we've played," VCU Head Coach Kelly McQuade said. "We made some really great connections and the girls are doing some great things. It's really exciting to see. We're getting there."
 
Junior Erin Jablonski (Charlottesville, Va.) made five saves in goal for the Rams, who were outshot, 15-3 and outcornered, 10-3.
 
VCU returns to action on Friday, Sept. 3 when the Rams host Northwestern at Cary Street Field at 3 p.m.
