Men's Soccer Loses At Brown, 2-1
Oct. 29, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Junior Giuliano Frano scored and freshman Zeiko Lewis added to his assist total, but a pair of first half goals propelled Brown to a 2-1 win over the Boston College men's soccer team on Tuesday night at Stevenson Field.
Frano scored in the 90th minute and it was his team-leading fourth goal of the season. Lewis now has 11 assists this year which leads the ACC and is second in the country. His 11 assists are the second most in BC history and the most ever by a freshman. Louis Papadellis holds the single season record with 14 helpers in 1980.
BC held a 12-11 advantage in shots and forced the Brown keeper to make five saves.
Boston College threatened in the early going, firing the first three shots of the match. Frano forced the Brown keeper to make a save in the third minute.
The Bears responded with a surge that gave them the first goal of the night. After a Jack Gorab shot was blocked, Jose Salama scored a goal in the 14th minute to give Brown the 1-0 lead. Daniel Taylor was credited with the assist.
The two sides tested each other over the next seven minutes as Brown keeper Josh Weiner had to make a pair of saves and sophomore Alex Kapp had to make one. Voltaire Escalona caused some trouble for the BC defense in the 39th minute when his shot was blocked. The ball bounced to Tyler Long and he stuck it in the top right corner to make it a 2-0 Bears lead.
The Eagles took three of the first four shots in the second half and Weiner saved the only one on target by freshman Isaac Normesinu. Both keepers made one save over the next 30 minutes to keep the score the same, but BC was able to strike in the 90th minute. Frano scored on a pass from Lewis with 34 seconds left, but it was too late to spark a rally.
Weiner was credited with five saves for Brown (5-6-3) while Kapp had two.
The Eagles (6-7-2) are back in action on Sunday when they host Virginia Tech at 1 p.m. in Newton.
