In the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Boston College blanked Yale 3-0 in Newton Thursday evening powered by a strong offensive effort in the first half.
The Eagles started out their scoring in the 16th minute. Michael Suski sent a ball to Kristofer Konradsson who drove the ball downfield and made a few defenders miss and scored on a left footed shot to give the Eagles the 1-0 lead.
A little while later in the 39th minute Tyshawn Rose fed a ball to Suski who fired a shot that went just under the crossbar, giving the Eagles the 2-0 lead.
Finally, in the waning moments of the first, the Eagles completed the three goal half on the efforts of two of BC’s most promising freshmen. Suski fed the ball to Stefan Sigurdarson about six yards back who shot the ball inside the left spot, giving the Eagles the 3-0 lead that it would never concede.
Christian Garner had six saves on the day.
The Eagles will now travel to Washington on Sunday Nov. 24 to take on Washington in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
