Still undefeated, the Eagles will face their biggest test yet when Florida State comes to town on Sunday afternoon—a win would not only preserve BC’s perfect record, but also likely vault the Eagles into the Top 25.
The Eagles scored two goals off Sam Coffey corner kicks in the first 20 minutes, before buckling down defensively and allowing Syracuse just five shots in a dominant 3-0 win to open ACC play.
BC’s major fall sports are on a tear to open the 2018 season, and it’s an opening surge that can be traced back to last year’s development and late success.
Sam Coffey scored the first goal on a penalty kick, before providing the assist for Kayla Jennings’ second, giving the Eagles a lead they would never relinguish en route to a comfortable win over Temple.
Each of the Eagles three leading scorers found the back of the net, while the back line and goaltender Alexis Bryant posted their fourth consecutive clean sheet to roll past Stony Brook.
