Newton, Mass. - Freshman Alex Redding scored in the 34th minute and it stood as the game's only goal as Providence College defeated ninth-ranked Boston College in a non-conference match Tuesday night at Newton Campus Field.
With the Eagles on the attack, PC freshman midfielder Matt Marcin stole possession and placed a through ball to Redding, who beat Eagle goalkeeper Chris Brown with his left foot at 34:06 for the gamewinner.
Boston College (7-3-2, 4-0-0 ACC) returns to action on Friday against eighth-ranked Virginia in Charlottesville after its two-game break from ACC play.
The Friars improve their record to 7-5-1.
The Eagles finished with an 11-7 shot advantage in the game, including a 7-4 edge in the first 45 minutes during which BC enjoyed perhaps its best scoring chances.
Just minutes into the match, junior midfielder Reuben Ayarna dribbled past several PC defenders and ripped a left-footed shot from 22 yards that sailed just over the crossbar.
Shortly thereafter, freshman Shawn Chin gained possession for BC and fed Alejandro Bedoya down the right side. Bedoya kicked a hard cross with his right foot that Mike Konicoff one-timed with his left foot from 18 yards right at Friars' goalkeeper Tim Murray.
Murray finished with three first-half saves and four in the game. The shutout marked his sixth of the season.
Providence held a 7-1 edge in corner kicks and committed 15 fouls in the game. BC totaled eight fouls.
