Boston College Soccer, Virginia Tech Play To 1-1 Draw, Now 2-2-1

Senior striker Charlie Rugg scored his first goal of the season but it wasn't enough to propel the Eagles men's soccer team to victory in a 1-1 draw at Virginia Tech. The Eagles dominated the entire game, holding a 21-6 advantage in shots during regulation. Rugg put the Eagles ahead just 34 seconds into the second half with an assist from Kyle Bekker.

The Hokies played a man down for almost the entire second half when Virginia Tech's Devante Dubose was carded six minutes into the second half. Despite playing a man down for the rest of the game, Hokies midfielder David Fiorello netted the equalizer on a shot 35 yards out that deflected off a BC defender and into the net.

Boston College held the edge in shots in the first OT session, 2-1, while Virginia Tech held the edge in the second OT.

The end result is disappointing given that BC dominated play and had the advantage of playing a man up for most of the second half but could only manage a draw. Seems like a missed opportunity at notching two more points in the conference standings when you consider where Virginia Tech will likely end up in the league table. Just two games into conference play, BC is just 0-1-1 with 1 point and in a three-way tie for sixth place with Virginia Tech and Clemson.

The Eagles will look to rebound tomorrow night as they travel to Storrs to take on the 4th ranked Connecticut Huskies. Game is at 7 PM.

Go Eagles!
