No. 8 Boston College Soccer Falls To No. 2 Maryland 4-0

The 8th ranked Boston College men's soccer team traveled to College Park to take on the second ranked Terps, looking to make a statement in the team's ACC opener. Unfortunately, it was the Terps that delivered the statement, routing the Eagles 4-0 behind two goals from Patrick Mullins (46', 60') and one each from Casey Townsend (9') and Taylor Kemp (70').

The Eagles offense was stymied by the Terps defense all night, with Maryland holding an overwhelming 18-4 edge in shots and 9-0 in shots on goal. The Maryland defense has only given up two goals in its first five games, and is off to its best start since the 2004 season.

BC goaltender Justin Luthy made five saves but allowed four goals on the night, his highest number of goals allowed this season. At the other end, Terps goalie Will Swaim pitched a clean slate without making one save.

The Eagles (4-1-0) have the week off before hosting Virginia Tech on Friday, September 16 at the Newton Campus Field. Start is 7 PM. The Hokies are 1-2-0 on the year, falling to both Howard (2-1 L) and Wisconsin (1-0 OT L) before knocking off Cincinnati last weekend (2-1 W). Tech hosts #1 North Carolina tonight in Blacksburg.

Go Eagles!
