Is there a program in New England that can stop Boston College men’s soccer? At this point, there doesn’t appear to be a team east of New York that can beat Ed Kelly’s Eagles. After rolling through Quinnipiac and Boston University without surrendering a goal and edging out the Rhode Island last week, BC headed…
Adam French scored his first career goal, Amos Shapiro-Thompson opened his scoring ledger in his first game in a BC uniform, and the Eagles started the season with a 2-0 shutout of the Wildcats.
Behind goals from fresh faces in Alex Mieles and Mike Suski, BC broke a 1-1 tie and pulled away from the visiting Friars in its first action of the fall.
For the third straight match, BC was done in by a single goal, losing to Notre Dame in what was yet another heartbreaking conference game.
BC snapped its six-game scoreless streak against the Tigers, and Simon Enstrom logged a pair of goals, including the game-winner in the 88th minute to knock of Clemson for the first time since 2009.
After struggling in 2017, head coach Ed Kelly added 13 new players to a roster already featuring plenty of returning talent and has his team poised to make some noise in a stacked Atlantic Coast Conference.
