Last Time vs. Quinnipiac:
Last fall, BC opened the season against the Bobcats as well; the Eagles hosted QU, and won 1-0, on a 68th minute goal by Trevor Davock. BC outshot QU 10-3.
Boston College gets its season started with a great opportunity to pick up a win on the road against a Bobcats team they’ve historically handled. The Eagles are 9-1-1 all time against Quinnipiac, and will be looking to keep that trend going.
With leading scorers Simon Enstrom, Zeiko Lewis and Trevor Davock ready to go for another season, the Eagles will try to get off the mark today and start strong. After today’s game, BC comes home for their home opener Sunday evening against BU.
