Normesinu, Norris Tabbed Eagles of the Week

Sept. 24, 2013

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Isaac Normesinu (men's soccer) and senior Paige Norris (field hockey) were named Eagles of the Week for their performances last week.

Normesinu scored a sensational goal in the 17th minute against No. 2 Notre Dame on Saturday night. He used his speed and footwork to shake a defender and then blasted a shot past the Irish goalkeeper to put BC ahead, 1-0. It was his first collegiate goal. BC and Notre Dame ended up in a 1-1 draw.

Norris led Boston College with five points on the weekend as the Eagles earned two victories over fifth-ranked Syracuse and Providence. She assisted on the game-winning goal against Syracuse on Sept. 20 and also assisted on the next goal, to make it a 4-2 game, on a goal scored on a corner. In the win on Sunday, she scored an insurance goal for the Eagles to make it 2-0 early in the second half.

The men's soccer team (2-2-2, 1-1-1 ACC) has a pair of road games this week at Rhode Island on Tuesday and NC State on Friday. Field hockey (7-1, 1-0) hosts a pair of games in Newton this week with home contests against No. 2 Maryland on Friday and Northeastern on Sunday.
