Tie game

NEWTON, MASS. -- Ninth-ranked Notre Dame conceded a late second half shot to finish in a 1-1 tie against Boston College on Senior Night at the Newton Soccer Field Saturday.

The Fighting Irish broke the defensive struggle in the 63rd minute, as a hard Notre Dame drive to the right side of the Boston College defense set up a corner kick. Junior defender Brittany Von Rueden served a high-arcing attempt right into the six-yard box to junior Katie Naughton who headed home a diving goal on the run.

Boston College tied the game on a rebound off the crossbar on what looked to be an offside call later in the second half. Three Eagle attackers crashed the Fighting Irish box in front of sophomore goalkeeper Kaela Little after the initial shot, and Allyson Swaby punched in a loose ball to tie the game at 1-1 in the 79th minute. Swaby's equalizer was the first goal allowed by Notre Dame in a road match in nearly 707 minutes, dating back to the first half of the regular season opener at Illinois on Aug. 22.

Notre Dame (12-4-2, 7-2-1 Atlantic Coastal Conference) completed its eighth unbeaten road regular season in program history, logging a 6-0-2 record in road contests this season.

The Fighting Irish outshot Boston College (10-8-1, 3-6-1 ACC) 18-9, including 8-3 in shots on goal and 10-3 advantage in corner kicks.
