For the first time this season, Ed Kelly and his team were unable to come away from a game with any points. The first of five top ten teams Boston College will face this year, Louisville entered the game as the number seven team in the country, and were able to score a late goal to escape Newton with a win.
The Eagles had a narrow edge on shots, 8-7, and had the same number of shots on goal, one, as the Cardinals, but Louisville’s keeper had the only save of the game, which allowed his team to come away with a 1-0 win. BC was unable to convert on any of their opportunities in the first half, which included a Kristofer Konradsson free kick that hit the cross bar, bounced straight down, and landed just outside of the goal.
The one shot that gave Lousiville’s keeper an actual save was a long distance shot in the final moments of the game, so he barely made any saves, but shots Callum Johnson, Simon Enstrom, and the aforementioned Konradsson all narrowly missed the frame.
The Eagles will try to bounce back when they play at UConn on Tuesday.
