  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Sports: November 14, 2005

It has been quite a weekend for Boston College Athletics; here are some of the highlights:


Via www.bceagles.com, to the left is a chart with Boston College teams and their respective rankings.

Boston College football is #23 in all of the major rankings (AP, Coaches, Harris) after this weekend's victory over the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

The men's ice hockey team should move up this week in light of a victory at Vermont on Sunday.


BC defeated N.C. State 30-10 this past Saturday night. For a thorough post-game analysis, please go to the Eagle in Atlanta. Some small post-game notes:
  • Senior DE Mathias Kiwankuka had a hand in 5 of BC's 8 sacks
  • L.V. Whitworth had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season
  • BC lost linebacker Brian Toal to a shoulder injury in the first half, but Toal should recover by next week's matchup at Maryland
The victory was, in many ways, bittersweet; it was the last home game for the 2005 Seniors, and came in the wake of an upset of Florida State, which would have opened the doors to an ACC Championshi game berth for the Eagles if only TOB had started Matt Ry-- I mean, if only the team had came back to beat UNC a week ago.

Boston College continues to get favorable coverage in the North Carolina press; this week it's a short story on Paul Criscione, the president of Boston College's Gridiron Club, in the The News Observer.

Men's Ice Hockey

Freshman phenom Nathan Gerbe - who continues to garner comparisons to Brian Gionta - lifted the Eagles to victory over eighth-ranked Vermont in the first ever matchup between BC and UVM as Hockey East members. Gerbe netted both goals in a 2-1 victory.

As for former Eagles in the pros: Andrew Alberts is going through the highs and lows of rookie life in the NHL; Krys Kolanos, whose overtime goal won the NCAA title for Boston College in 2001, was claimed off waivers by the Edmonton Oilers - and the locals are excited to have him; former Eagles captain Ryan Shannon is the AHL leader in game-winning goals and is profiled by the Hartford Courant; and there's a story noting the many former Eagles with the NHL's Penguins - including former BC star Ben Eaves who is with the "Baby Pens" and is finding success through injury as usual.

Women's Soccer

Boston College advanced to the Sweet 16 with a shutout of mail-order degree Boston University in the second round of the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament. The 1-0 victory marked the Eagles' 13th shutout of the season, the most in school history. BC will face the fifth-ranked Santa Clara Broncos in the next round.

Men's Basketball

Junior Dudley registered 26 points and 19 rebounds and senior Craig Smith notched 14 points and 12 rebounds to lead 11th-ranked Boston College to a 102-62 exhibition victory over St. Michael's (VT).

Women's XC

The women's cross country team captured first place at the NCAA Northeast Region Championship, and will proceed to compete for a National Championship.

This Week's We're So Great Because We're in the ACC Article

This time with a focus on men's bball.

Flutie is Coming

Billy Flutie, who will be joining the Eagles next year, led Natick High to a 43-12 victory over Milton this weekend.

Flutie, who broke his right foot in August, stepped onto the field as quarterback for the first time this season and hooked up with his future Boston College teammate, Rashaude Goodwyn, for an 80-yard post and a touchdown on only his second play from scrimmage.
