Boston College men’s soccer defeated Boston University 1-0 on their turf on Sunday, bringing the Eagles to 2-0 on the season. Sophomore Kristofer Konradsson scored the lone goal of the game four minutes into the first half, giving BC the momentum it needed to hold on for the rest of the game.
Kondradsson was able to take a cleared ball down the middle, utilizing the space to create a scoring opportunity. From 25-yards out, Konradsson found the back of the net on a low shot inside the left post to put the Eagles on top. This was the sophomore’s first goal of the season and the second of his career.
Amos Shapiro-Thompson, Tyshawn Rose, and Konradsson boosted the offense with three shots each, while Mike Suski and Stefan Sigurdarson notched two apiece. Freshmen Shapiro-Thompson and Sigurdarson started for the Eagles and proved their value to the team, contributing significantly to the offense.
Two other freshmen, Giacomo Piccardo and Victor Souza, also started and added great support to the Eagles’ defense. Goalkeeper Piccardo tallied five saves, with defender Souza clearing tough shots in the box to take good care of his goalie.
The Eagles will look to grab their third win of the season when they take on Rhode Island at home on Friday at 7 p.m.
