WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross field hockey team fell to Boston College, 4-0, in the home-opener at the Hart Turf Field. With the loss, the Crusaders fall to 0-3 on the season while the Eagles improve to 4-0.
Boston College's Bob Dirks scored the first of her two goals of the game, at the 21:03 mark, as Holy Cross senior goalkeeper Erin Singleton (Amesbury, Mass.) charged out of the circle. Dirks dodged around Singleton and scored in the left side of the goal.
With under a minute left in the half, Chelsey Feole made a pass inside the circle which was deflected by a defender. Dirks then took possession of the ball and scored for the Eagles.
Boston College put another goal on the board, at the 36:13 mark, as Emily Kozniuk scored on a penalty stroke. Just three minutes later, Kelley Smith tallied an unassisted goal off a penalty corner by the Eagles.
Singleton made eight saves for the Crusaders while Julia Berkowitz had one stop for Boston College.
