Despite having nearly three times as many shots and twice as many shots on goal, Boston College men’s soccer could not top the University of Rhode Island Tuesday night on Newton Campus.
The Rams were able to strike first in the 33rd minute off of a corner kick, despite the Eagles controlling much of the game before then. The scoreline would remain one-nil in favor of URI until the 59th minute, when they were able to take advantage of a throw-in in the attacking third and double the lead. Only ten minutes later, the Eagles would get on the board from a Younes Boudadi cross that found Beto Luna, who put it past the URI keeper.
Despite controlling the final 20 minutes, the Eagles were unable to sneak another goal through the URI defense, ultimately falling 2-1. Now at 3-6, the Eagles will need to improve their results if they want a chance at playing postseason soccer. The Eagles will return to the field on Friday night, hosting Virginia Tech.
