BC Pays For Abandoning Run in Third

November 14, 2009 - 12:54 pm

It seems that Boston College has forgotten that it has a pretty good running back on its team in the form of Montel Harris. The Eagles have come out throwing in the second half against Virginia, trying to work the center field against the stout Cavalier secondary to absolutely no effect. At one point in the middle of the third quarter seven of eight BC plays were passes. Shinskie missed all but one and that for short yardage. The only way the Eagles were able to keep the ball moving was a pass interference by Dom Joseph on tight end Chris Pantale and then a roughing the kicker when Ryan Quigley tried to punt deep out of his own end. Shinskie then served one up. He tried to go down field but senior corner back Chris Cook stepped in front and returned the interception 58 yards for the touchdown. The momentum is on Virginia's side as the BC offense has completely stalled in the in the third quarter. 3:00 left in the quarter. Boston College 7 Virginia 7
