DURHAM, N.H. -- Melissa Shulman scored in the 17th minute and it proved to be the game's only goal as the Boston University women's soccer team recorded a 1-0 America East victory against the University of New Hampshire at blustery Bremner Field.
UNH is now 7-6-2 overall and 2-3-2 overall. BU extended its unbeaten streak to seven games (5-0-2) to improve to 9-4-4 and a league-best 5-0-1.
Marisha Schumacher-Hodge set up the tally with a pass 15 yards from the top of the penalty area to the left wing, where Shulman gathered the ball and, from 15 yards out, bent a high shot inside the right post.
Play was even the rest of the first half and the Terriers took an 8-4 shot advantage into halftime. BU played with the strong wind at its back in the second half and generated a 10-0 edge in shots in the final 45 minutes.
UNH pushed the ball forward with a sense of urgency with just over one minute remaining, but the Terriers kept the ball out of the penalty area, hit a long service down the right touchline and kept possession in the right corner to secure the victory.
BU goalkeeper Christina Reuter recorded one save for her fourth shutout of the season. UNH goalie Julie Randall (East Longmeadow, Mass.) recorded four of her six saves in the second half.
New Hampshire returns to action Oct. 19 (4 p.m.) at intrastate rival Dartmouth College. The Wildcats conclude the regular season with Senior Day on Oct. 23 vs. Albany. Game time at Lewis Fields is 1 p.m.
