Eagles take on Virginia Tech at home in ACC opening round

The Gavel

Postseason play returns to the Newton Campus soccer facility tonight when the Boston College Eagles take on Virginia Tech in the ACC tournament’s opening round. BC and VT earned the #8 and #9 seeds in the ACC, and are squaring off to determine who travels to #1 North Carolina on Sunday.

Both teams bounced back in their regular season finales after struggling down the stretch, and are looking to polish up their NCAA tournament resumes. BC is 7-7-2 overall and 3-3-2 in the ACC, while Virginia Tech is 10-4-3 and 3-4-1 in ACC play.

The Eagles are looking to improve on a solid home record this season; BC went 2-0-2 against ACC foes in Newton this fall, and 5-3-2 overall.

Two players who were key contributors in last year’s run to the Elite Eight have been huge for BC recently: Zeiko Lewis, who broke BC’s career assist record, and Trevor Davock, who potted a hat trick against NC State.

No stream is available but live stats can be tracked here and tickets for tonight are $5.
