When we last checked in on the Boston College Eagles men's soccer team, BC was coming off a 4-0 loss to the second ranked Maryland Terrapins down in College Park. Since then, the Eagles have picked up a pair of victories, while falling to another second-ranked team, the UConn Huskies.
Last weekend, junior Charlie Rugg scored the game-winning goal in the 93rd minute of overtime to lift the Eagles to a 4-3 OT victory over the visiting Virginia Tech Hokies. Junior goalie Justin Luthy stopped a pair of shots in the victory.
This past Tuesday, the Eagles then hosted the second ranked UConn Huskies at Newton Campus Field. After controlling the game for most of the first half, the Huskies used a pair of goals in the first 16 minutes to knock off the Eagles.
Finally, tonight the Eagles managed a 1-0 road victory over Rhode Island to improve to 6-2-0 on the year. Junior Charlie Rugg got the Eagles only goal of the match in just the second minute, and Luthy turned aside all 12 shots faced, a career best. The goal was Rugg's second in three games, both game winners. He's now tied for the team lead for goals with five this season.
Boston College (6-2-0) returns to Rhode Island on Tuesday night to face the Brown Bears in Providence, followed by another ACC road game in Raleigh vs. N.C. State (3-3-2) on Friday, September 30.
