Boston College men’s soccer took its first loss of the season Friday afternoon, falling 2-0 to the University of New Hampshire. UNH opened the scoring in the 30th minute off of a BC own goal, which came off of a corner kick. The ball deflected off of a defenseman’s shoulder and past goalkeeper Antonio Chavez Borrelli.
Without many chances, the Eagles didn’t have a great opportunity to even the score until the 87th minute, when Beto Luna found a Mohammad Moro service right in front of the UNH goalkeeper, but was unable to finish and pushed it wide.
One minute later, the Wildcats doubled their lead as Linus Fallberg was able to beat Chavez Borelli off of a cross to essentially end any hopes the Eagles had of saving a point.
The Eagles outshot the Wildcats by a count of 12-7 but were unable to finish any of their chances. They will look to get back to their winning ways on September 4 at 1 PM on the Newton Soccer field.
A previous version of this article indicated that this was BC’s first game without goalkeeper Cedric Saladin. This statement was not factual and has been corrected. BC Interruption regrets the error.
