It was a tale of two weekends for Boston College volleyball to open the season….
More adversity was faced by Boston College volleyball in the first weekend of the 2019…
For the second game in a row, BC broke a 1-1 deadlock in the final two innings and escaped a tough local foe in Harvard behind strong pitching.
Riding high after a four-game winning streak that included an upset of top-30 Miami, BC was handed a 4-1 setback on the road to an Irish team that had been stuck in a rut the last few weeks.
Brian Dempsey has played three positions in three years, moved from ninth to third in the batting lineup, and proved that it doesn’t matter if you have one college offer: you can become the heart of a baseball team.
Joey Walsh made his first start and went four scoreless innings, then Travis and Thomas Lane shut the door in the final four frames of a 4-0 shutout of the visiting Rams on Tuesday afternoon.
After a loss in the first round of the Beanpot against slumping UMass, BC looked to regain its confidence against a similarly struggling Hartford team. But the Hawks stole the show on Wednesday, winning 7-4.
Colby Dunlop hurled five innings of one-run ball and the UConn bullpen did the rest, guiding the Huskies to a 3-1 win on Wednesday.
The Eagles won the first game of the weekend series, but their pitching deserted them after that, allowing 35 runs in the next two games—both losses.
Despite strong ball control, a standout performance from Nik Popovic, and a second-half surge from the Eagles, BC lost yet another overtime contest.
