[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
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."
