No. 13 Boston College Soccer Defeats Fairfield 1-0

When we last checked in on Boston College's other men's football program, the Eagles were coming off a 2-1 victory in the season opener at Quinnipiac. Since then, BC dropped its home opener to Boston University 1-0, but rebounded on Monday night by knocking off the Fairfield Stags 1-0 at Lessing Field.

Boston College senior Kevin Mejia broke a scoreless tie in the 78th minute to lift the No. 13 Eagles to a 1-0 victory. The game's only goal was set up by a cross from freshman Derrick Boateng, his first collegiate points. The Eagles outshot the Stags 11-4 in the match.

For the third straight game, the Eagles were without the services of senior forward Charlie Rugg, who left the preseason exhibition game against Syracuse with a knee injury. Rugg, along with Diego Medina-Mendez and Kyle Bekker, led the team last season with eight goals, five of those game-winners.

The Eagles improve to 2-1-0 on the year and will hopefully ride the momentum from the win into Friday night's ACC opener against No. 6 Maryland. The Terps are 2-0-1 on the year and are coming off a 6-0 drubbing of visiting Cal. Through just three games, Maryland is outscoring opponents 11-2. Last season, the Eagles got pasted by Maryland down in College Park to the tune of 4-0 before avenging the early-season loss with a 2-1 victory over the Terps in the ACC Tournament.

Go Eagles!
