Area roundup: Huskies fall to Boston College in OT

The Washington women’s soccer team’s NCAA tournament run came to an end Saturday, as Cerrone Hannah scored in the 6th minute of overtime to lift Boston College (17-6-1) to a 1-0 victory over the Huskies (13-9-2) in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament in Newton, Mass.

Cerrone’s corner kick glanced off Washington keeper Jorde Lafontaine-Kussman off the left post for the winner.

LaFontaine-Kussmann made five saves in the match as the Huskies outshot BC 17-15.


Washington State (6-22, 0-18) made each set close, but could not extend the match as No. 24 Oregon used 16 kills from Heather Meyers to sweep the Cougars in Pac-10 play in Pullman.

Meagan Ganzer had 14 kills to lead the Cougars, who finished the season winless in conference play.

• Kindra Carlson notched 19 kills and a .395 hitting percentage, Becky Perry added nine kills and No. 11 Washington (21-8, 10-8) closed the Pac-10 season with a sweep of Oregon State (9-23, 2-16) in Seattle.

The Huskies held OSU to just 37 kills and a .212 hitting percentage in the match, helping them finish with a win and a fifth-place finish in the conference standings.
