Comments From Head Coach Nick Bochette:
“It was a difficult night for us, but it’s a match we’ll take a lot away from moving forward. Credit to Boston College as they were committed, decisive, and asserted themselves from the first minute. There were some bright spells in there for us, no doubt, but by and large, we were beaten by a team that was better than us on the night. One loss doesn’t erase all the good work we have put in over the last three weeks, however, and we will learn from this game as we progress. Another opportunity awaits us at Colgate on Sunday, and we look forward to the test.”
