Sophomore Adam Schmidt, of Warrington, Pa., scored two goals and senior Andrew Cox, of Lombardy, Ontario, posted one goal and two assists as the Holy Cross men’s hockey team defeated No. 7 Boston University, 5-4, in front of a crowd of 5,766 at Agganis Arena on Saturday in non-conference action.
With the win, the Crusaders improve to 2-1-0 overall, while the Terriers fall to 2-2-0 overall. This is Holy Cross’ first ever win over Boston U., as the Terriers won the only other meeting by a 3-2 score on Nov. 25, 2008. It is also the Crusaders’ first win over a ranked team since the 4-3 NCAA Tournament overtime victory over No. 3 Minnesota on March 24, 2006.
Holy Cross’ 2-1-0 record is its best start since going 2-1-0 to begin the 2007-2008 season. After Holy Cross scored the first goal of the game, the Terriers scored the next two, but Holy Cross then netted four straight goals for a 5-2 lead. Boston U. scored two more goals to cut the deficit to 5-4, but could not get any closer and the Crusaders clinched the win.
