Dowd doubled the Eagles’ lead in the 39th minute. She forward dribbled into the box, ripped a shot into the left side of the net for the 2-0 lead.

Illinois immediately responded in the 40th minute when sophomore Amy Feher connected on a long pass into the box. She headed the ball between the pipes over BC goalkeeper Alex Johnson’s head.

Just two minutes later, Meehan dribbled down the left side and scored on a deflection into the net to give the Eagles a 3-1 lead into the locker room.
