HAPPY GAME WEEK! Doesn't today feel so much better than most Mondays?
It was an up-and-down weekend for the BC women's soccer team, but ultimately one that showed they're likely to be a very good team again this year. In their season opener on Friday night, they fought tooth and nail with #2 Stanford, taking the game to double overtime before the Cardinal scored to win 2-1. Lauren Bernard notched her first career goal in the loss.
BC bounced back impressively on Sunday, beating BU (always nice) 1-0. Sophomore McKenzie Meehan scored the game winner for the Eagles.
BC continues its challenging start to the season on Wednesday night with a home game against UConn.
HockeyEastOnline.com sat down with Cory Schneider to discuss his memories of Hockey East as well as his recent move to the New Jersey Devils.
The Herald had a nice writeup on Andre Williams this weekend. Is it just me, or has the newspaper coverage of the team been better than usual? Speaking of which...
The Heights actually scooped the Globe on this little tidbit:To add meaning to every victory this season,
Addazio challenged the team to learn the words to BC's fight song, "For Boston.'' After every win, the Eagles will sing the fight song in their locker room.
"He's even having us learn the alma mater,'' White said. "It always used to be you'd be holding your helmet up and we'd be looking up at the screen, reading the words off the screen. It never really meant anything. It was just what we were supposed to do, but it wasn't any fun when you were losing games.
"But it's definitely a motivation to learn the fight song and learn the alma mater, because when we win games at home this year it's going to be awesome to go over to the student section [for the alma mater], then come into the locker room as a team and come together to sing that.''
1) They didn't know For Boston before? Did they skip orientation?
2) Can I blame Spaz for that, too? Yeah?
3) Most non-football-playing students just read the words of the Alma Mater off of the screen too, so don't feel bad.
ESPN Boston posted an update on a pair of interesting local hockey recruits.
BC High rising sophomore defenseman Ryan Shea ('97) has received interest from the likes of UNH, Merrimack, Brown and UConn, a source tells us. After a strong showing at the U.S.A. Hockey Festival with the Boys' Select 16s, it's possible others could follow.
Of course, it's always a possibility that Boston College could come into play with Shea, who had three goals and nine assists in his only varsity season with the Eagles. After all, the Milton native's father, Danny, was a second-team All-American at the Heights.
