Men's Soccer Drops Final Non-Conference Match To Boston College

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's soccer team dropped their final non-conference match of the season to Boston College, 3-1, Tuesday evening. Senior midfielder Christian Sady's second goal of the season was not enough to power past the Eagles' Simon Enstrom's hat-trick. 

Enstrom put the Eagles on the scoreboard first, scoring in the 16th minute. Late in the first period, Enstrom scored his second goal of the game to send Boston College into the half with the two-goal advantage.

At the beginning of the second half, Enstrom scored for the third time, but despite trailing by three points Harvard was not going to back down. Late in the period, Harvard was threatening to score to break up the shut-out. 

Sophomore midfielder Asa Silverman ripped a shot off an Eagle defender. Soon after, Harvard was awarded a penalty kick, following a foul in the box. Sady connected on the kick, launching the ball to the right of the Boston College goalkeeper to put Harvard on the scoreboard.

Senior goalkeeper Kyle Parks made his 10th start in net for the Crimson and recorded five saves.
