WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross men’s soccer team was narrowly defeated by Boston College, 3-2. Max Krause tallied two second-half goals but the Crusaders could not hold off the Eagles.

 

The first 45 minutes saw a lone Boston College goal. In the 16th minute, Mike Suski broke through on a loose ball through the 18-yard box. Holy Cross added two shots in the opening frame.

 

Early in the second half, Krause shot off a rocket that hit the crossbar and deflected into the net. Krause’s shot came from just outside the left side of the 18-yard box and he was assisted by Bobby Manella on the play.

The teams’ played nearly 10 minutes knotted at 2-2, but the Eagles offense struck a third time as Jesus Sahagun scored in the 83rd minute.

 

Koolman on the Game:

“It’s all about belief, and today we played like we believed we weren’t supposed to score a goal or equalize the game. We need to have the belief against anyone we play against and it is getting better and better this season. The young guys are doing well and collectively they are doing well, but it’s a game of 90 minutes. They are a good team, but we have to take care of business.”
