A strong effort from Pittsburgh midfielder Velijko Petkovic sunk the Boston College Eagles Friday night in Newton as the Eagles fell to the Panthers 2-0 at the Soccer/Lacrosse complex.
The scoring started in the latter part of the first half. Petkovic tallied his first contribution in the scoresheet on a set piece. Petkovic received a touch from teammate Valentin Noel and put the goal past goalkeeper Giacomo Piccardo.
The Panthers scored the dagger late in the second half. Petkovic sent a through ball to Alexander Dexter, who put the ball past Piccardo, giving the Panthers their second gaol and Petkovic the assist.
The Eagles will play UMass Amherst Tuesday Sept. 24 at 4 PM. The game will be played on ACC Network Extra. The Eagles will then travel to Virginia Tech to take on the Hokies on Friday, Sept. 27. That game will be played on the ACC Network and will start at 1 PM.
