Yesterday was the good news, and today is the bad news: the following are the top 5 worst Boston College sports moments this year.
The first thing that may have come to your minds was this: did the Pinstripe Bowl on Saturday make the list, and if so, where did it rank? You’ll just have to thumb through and find out.
As easy as it was to come up with the five best moments, the five worst were equally simple. These are all things we saw, experienced, and hated. Such is the life of being a fan and following the ups and downs of a program.
2014 Top 5 Worst Boston College Sports Moments — Dishonorable Mention
Boston College hockey loses to Harvard; November 11
The Eagles handed themselves their longest losing streak in a decade in early November when they lost to the Harvard Crimson. Boston College men’s hockey had not lost to Harvard in the nine games prior.
With their national ranking sinking and a sub-.500 record looming, Boston College played their flattest game of the 2014-15 season to date and were embarrassed in a 6-3 loss at home to the Crimson.
Brad Barone, playing in place of Thatcher Demko, allowed five goals on 27 shots he faced. Harvard’s Alexander Kerfoot notched a hat trick while the Eagles, formerly owning one of the most fierce power plays in college hockey, went 0-for-7 on the man advantage.
This “helped” the Eagles confront their worst start in over 15 years, the repercussions of which may prevent them from making the NCAA Tournament in 2015.
