Boston University Scores Once In Each Half, Shuts Out Men's Soccer
Oct. 26, 2013
BOSTON - Boston University scored once in each half, and the Terriers outshot Loyola University Maryland, 15-6, en route to a 2-0 Patriot League victory on Saturday night at Nickerson Field.
Dominique Badji ripped a shot from the left side, scoring 14:40 into the first half off an Anthony Ciccone assist, to put Boston University (5-8-1 overall, 2-4-1 Patriot League) in front early.
Loyola (5-7-2, 0-5-1) looked to record the equalizer with shots on goal in the 22nd and 43rd minutes, but attempts by Diego McQuestion and Stephen Dooley were saved by Terriers goalkeeper Matt Gilbert.
The Greyhounds garnered another quality opportunity late in the 56th minute when Gilbert saved a McQuestion shot, but the rebound came to Dooley who had a shot blocked by a defender.
Boston University continued to keep the pressure on Loyola following that chance, recording the next eight shots, including a header by David Asbjornsson that went off the crossbar in the 64th minute.
The Terriers broke through for their second goal with just 11:50 left in regulation. Evin Nadaner sent a low cross from the right side just outside the six-yard box, and Lucas McBride redirected it with a hard shot into the lower right side of the goal, putting an insurance tally on the board for the Terriers.
Gilbert finished with three saves for Boston University, while Zach Kane had two for the Greyhounds.
