Stature is everything, and at first glance the America East Conference appears rather short.
After starting the season off with two victories, the Boston University women’s soccer team is currently amidst a five-game winless streak, in which it has recorded three losses and two ties.
Tightrope passes for goals inside the 18-foot box and losses have been mutually exclusive for the Boston University men’s soccer team through five games. The Terriers have scored just once from inside the box this season, but their knack for finding passing lanes inside has rendered their lack of marksmanship moot.
After three straight losses, including two by a single goal, the Boston University field hockey team has slipped out of the national rankings. It’s easy to blame the Terriers’ (1-5) early struggles on an inexperienced roster or on a difficult schedule that included four ranked teams.
‘The first goal is everything.’ That’s what BU men’s soccer coach Neil Roberts said after his team’s 1-0 victory over top-ranked St. John’s. Steven Knox’s goal in the 34th minute that put the Terriers ahead certainly was a huge reason they were able to defeat the Red Storm on Sunday.
