Equestrian

The University of Miami equestrian team competed in a horse show at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Ga., during the weekend of Oct. 1. The Hurricanes fared well in the two-day showcase, taking one first, two seconds and two fourth-place finishes in individual events.

Tiffany Parrett was the only first-place finisher for Miami as part of the Western team. For the Hunt Seat squad, Kristina Moser and Hallie Sheade took second place in the novice on the flat event. Juli Diamond and Kelly Paul also placed in the same event. Claire Crawford finished in fourth place in the intermediate over fences category. Viviana Zurita came in fifth in the open over fences event.

Women’s Soccer

The University of Miami women’s soccer team allowed an eventual game-winning goal in the 19th minute of play in what ended as a 2-0 loss to No. 8 Boston College Thursday night at Cobb Stadium.

Miami (5-8-1, 0-5-0 ACC) had their best scoring opportunity against Boston College (9-1-1, 3-1-0 ACC) early in the first half when red shirt sophomore forward Rebecca Tweneboah ran down a ball at the top of the box, shifted past Eagle keeper Arianna Criscione who was coming out of the net and got off a shot from 15 yards out to the short post only to have it saved by a Boston College defender just before scoring.

The Eagles netted their first of two goals against UM at the 18:25 mark when, off a free kick from nearly 35 yards out, Jenny Maurer found teammate Maddie Johnson, who was able to foot just enough of the pass to score in the short side of the net past Miami sophomore keeper Lauren McAdam.

The two teams came out of the half with UM trailing by a goal and the Hurricanes quickly showed a more up-tempo attack. Miami’s comeback efforts, however, were cut short as Boston College added an insurance goal by Molly Dane in the 79th minute to lead the Eagles to the 2-0 win.

Tweneboah led the Hurricanes with three shots, including two on goal, followed by freshmen midfielders Bryn Heinicke and Rachael Rigamat.
