For the first time in program history the Holy Cross varsity men’s hockey team defeated No. 7 Boston College, 5-4, at the Kelley Rink at Conte Forum on Friday afternoon in non-conference action. With the win, the Crusaders advance to 4-9-0 overall, while the Eagles fall to 8-4-2 overall. This victory was Holy Cross’ fifth win over a nationally ranked team in program history and the third versus a top 10 team. This is the first ever win by an Atlantic Hockey team versus Boston College. The last time Boston College lost to a non-conference opponent at home was on Oct. 14, 2011 when they fell to Denver, 4-2. Freshman Mike Barrett (Orland Park, Ill.) posted two goals and one assist for the Crusaders and earned the first star of the game. Sophomore Matt Vidal (Manorville, N.Y.) tallied two assists and scored a goal which earned him the second star of the game.
