In a week that featured battles with both the Harvard Crimson and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Boston College men’s soccer earned a victory against Harvard and came up just short against #2 Wake.
On Tuesday against Harvard, Simon Enstrom scored the lone goal in the second minute for his fourth game winning goal of the year. In the second half, the Eagles continued to push for a second goal, but Trevor Davock and Callum Johnson were unable to score on a combination play. BC dominated the game with nine shots on goal to Harvard’s two.
On Friday night, Ed Kelly’s team travelled to Winston-Salem to take on the number two team in the country. It was the Eagles who were the aggressor early on, as Enstrom forced two saves in the first twenty minutes of play. In the thirtieth minute, BC’s Joshua Forbes and Wake’s Bruno Lapa were given double red cards and disqualified for the remainder of the game. With just two minutes remaining in the first half, Wake Forest was able to take the lead on a goal from Michael DeShields. Once the second half began, it took BC only ten minutes to equalize on Trevor Davock’s first career goal. However, Aristotle Zarris had a one-time finish in the 75th minute to give Wake the final advantage in a game where BC had 3 more shots on goal than their opponent.
BC will return to the field on Tuesday night for a battle with the UConn Huskies.
