Live Blog: Women's soccer vs. BU

8:07 p.m. - From head coach Ed Matz: "The goal was to accomplish something we hadn't done before and that was beat BU in the regular season. BU was pressing, and it was a good game."

7:54 p.m. - The match is over, and Northeastern staves off the BU rally to win 1-0. Napoli's goal holds up as the game-winner, and Stephanie Gordon has now recorded her fourth shutout in six games this season. She is now tied for third all-time in career shutouts at NU with 11. She continues to lead the CAA in goals against average.

7:53 p.m. - With 1:15 left, BU's Corie Halsz weaved through a crowd and got a shot off, but Gordon pushed it away from the net. On the ensuing corner, the header went wide.
