  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Sports: November 4, 2005

No Holds Barred

Ken Florian, BC '99, is a member of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The 28-year old former soccer player is 5-2 and will face his biggest challenge tomorrow night (Spike TV, 9 p.m.) in a bout at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Andrew Alberts is featured in today's Boston Globe.

Jeff Guiliano, a member of the 2001 National Championship team and most remembered for his all-out, gutsy style of play, was called up to the NHL this week. More coverage here. He did not appear on the King's box score against Phoenix last night, but hopefully he will see some ice time soon.

Former Eagle Krys Kolanos did appear on the box score of the Kings-Coyotes game after he scored his 2nd goal of the year.

The Gionta/Clemmensen show continues. Gionta netted his sixth goal of the year in a tough loss to the Rangers last night; Gionta's remarkable concentration allowed him to swat a puck out of midair to light the lamp midway through the third period. It was almost as good as that time when Gionta ... oh, nevermind.

The play brought memories of "the bravest thing ever seen in hockey," when Ben Eaves, who had been crippled by leg cramps that had left him writhing in pain on the bench just moments before, returned to the ice in OT of an NCAA quarterfinal matchup against Michgan. Halfway through the OT period, Eaves swatted a rebounding puck out of mid-air for the game winner.

Chuck Kobasew had an assist with the Flames. Marty Reasoner also has an assist for the Oilers last night.

The Herald discusses tomorrow's matchup against UNC.

Michael Vega of the Globe on the success of BC sophomore safety Jamie Silva.

William Troost, the BC kicker who has become a "wee bit more visible" after taking over kicking duties from struggling sophomore Ryan Ohliger, is featured in the Milford Daily News.

Lenny Walls
, former Boston College defensive back, has expressed an interest in returning to Mass to join the New England Patriots. Walls will be released by the Denver Broncos after healing from a groin injury.
