The #9 Eagles took flight on the weekend of March 2nd to Arizona for one of the toughest stretches of road games in the country. Boston College began their trip with a visit to the then #6 Arizona State Sun Devils. Facing one of the fastest teams in the country, the game plan for the Eagles was simple: stop ASU in transition. BC succeeded in doing so for a majority of the first 3 quarters but had a little trouble during the fourth, but the Eagles defense was still able to stand strong and took the game 12-11. David Hincks ‘18 continued his success this year with 2 goals and 2 assists. Gerard Quinn ‘18 and Kevin Sheridan ‘18 also added 2 each while Spencer Bromley (GS)* led the game in scoring with 5 goals while also adding an assist.
The Eagles traveled to Tucson the following evening to take on the Arizona Wildcats. The game was fast paced, unlike a normal game for the Eagles, but Boston College was able to continue their offensive success that night, netting 13 in the contest. Staying hot, David Hincks, Spencer Bromley, and Gerard Quinn shined as all of them put up 3 goals each with Hincks and Quinn adding 2 assists. The defense, led by Ryan Neff ‘18 and goalie Mike O’Keeffe ‘18 proved to be strong as always as Arizona was only able to score 8 in the contest.
After a awesome day off watching the Los Angeles Angels, Boston College would conclude their road trip with a game against the #1 ranked Grand Canyon Antelopes. The game was gritty throughout, however the Eagles fell, 10-l. Offense was at a minimum in the first half as the first quarter ended 0-0, and the score at half was 3-1. Defensemen
Ryan Neff ‘18, Chris Rylkov ‘20, and PJ McIntyre ‘19 played incredibly well the entire game against the best offense in the country. Gerard Quinn was the only Eagle to score in the game off of a rebound. Boston College takes a break from game activity for a while but looks to bounce back in April as they start conference play against the University of Rhode Island.
