Boston College men’s soccer lost to ranked opponents UConn and UNC to run its losing streak to three games.
Against the #20 UConn Huskies, BC dominated in both shots and shots on goal, but a potential game-tying penalty kick was missed in the 31st minute by Simon Enstrom took the wind out of BC’s sails, and put them in an early hole. UConn would grab one more goal in the final two minutes of the first half to go into the half with a 2-0 lead. Only three minutes into the second half, the Huskies would increase their lead again, effectively ending the game. Led by Kristoffer Konradsson, who scored the first two goals of his young career, the Eagles were able to cut the deficit to one, but were unable to equalize in yet another one goal loss to a ranked opponent.
Against #5 UNC, the Eagles celebrated Senior Day, but were unable to beat the Tar Heels. Both teams had their opportunities in the first half, but neither was able to get a shot on goal, so the first half ended with goose eggs on both sides of the scoreboard. The score would remain that way until the 80th minute, when Nils Bruening scored his sixth goal of the season to give the Tar Heels the lead. Only five minutes later, Jack Skahan was ruled just onside and slotted a finish to the left of Antonio Chavez Borelli, doubling the Tar Heel lead.
BC will take the road for matchups with both URI and Syracuse this week to finish up the regular season.
