Bulldogs advance in goalfest

[BOSTON COLLEGE-DRAKE 4-6] Missouri Valley champion Drake moved into the NCAA Division I men's quarterfinals for the first time with a 6-4 win at Boston College.

The 10 goals were the most goals scored in an NCAA Division I Men's Tournament game in 24 years.

BC led to 2-0 after a half an hour and 3-2 in the second half but could not hold the leads.

"Each week seems to surpass the last, just when you think it can't be any better for the program and for the kids, something incredible happens," Drake coach Sean Holmes said. "To host and win our first game at home was great, and then to go to Ohio State and win a nail-bitter in overtime was amazing, and to come to Boston College and give up four goals and win by two is unlike anything I've ever experienced. Goals came from everywhere today, to be down two and come back to win 6-4 especially with Michael Drozd getting hurt and soldiering on and then to throw in Jordan [Kadlec], and for him to give up only one goal in the final 39 minutes is absolutely incredible."

Most Goals-NCAA Division I Men's Tournament
1962 Saint Louis 9 Stanford 3 (12 goals)
1978 Appalachian State 9 George Washington 3 (12 goals)
2009 Drake 6 Boston College 4 (10 goals)
1962 Michigan State 9 Howard 1 (10 goals)
1963 Saint Louis 7 Maryland 3 (10 goals)
1967 Trinity (Conn.) 6 Army 4 (10 goals)
1985 Penn State 5 Temple 5 (10 goals)
(Penn State wins on penalties.)

Senior Kevin Shrout had the key goal, tying the score at 2-2 with 14 seconds left in the first half on a free kick from 38 yards.

He later assisted on a pair of goals by Luke Gorczyca, both on headers off free kicks, to give Drake 4-3 and 5-4 leads. Gorczyca's second goal came only 14 seconds after BC's Kyle Bekker had tied the score at 4-4.

Garrett Webb tallied one goal and one assist for Drake, while Matt Kuhn and Michael Noonan each scored once for the victors.  Junior Nick Foster added two second-half assists.
BC freshman forward Charlie Rugg had one goal and two assists while senior Mor Avi Hanan tallied one goal and one assist in the loss.
Drodz was injured in the second half and replaced by Kadlec in the Drake goal.
