According to sources close to the news, Virginia Tech’s men’s soccer team emerged victorious in a tightly contested match against Boston College on Friday night. Noe Uwimana’s stunning goal in the 78th minute proved to be the decisive moment that secured a 1-0 win for the Hokies at Thompson Field.
The game started off with both teams struggling to find their rhythm, resulting in a lack of clear-cut chances. Tech managed just two shots on target throughout the match, while Boston College failed to register any. However, it was Uwimana who provided the moment of brilliance by unleashing a powerful right-footed shot into the top left corner, giving his team an important victory in ACC competition.
For the majority of the game, both defenses and midfields were successful in snuffing out potential opportunities for their opponents. The first half saw only one shot on target as both teams remained resolute at the back. In contrast, Virginia Tech showed more attacking intent in the second half, outshooting Boston College five to three.
While Tech’s offense searched for a breakthrough, its defensive unit put together an impressive performance to secure their first clean sheet of the season. Goalkeeper Timi Adams had little to do but still managed to record his first shutout, supported by solid displays from central defenders Theo Drennan, Grant Howard, and Sergios Feneridis.
This victory extends Virginia Tech’s unbeaten run to five matches, consisting of one win and three draws at home along with an impressive 2-1 triumph over fifth-ranked Louisville last week. It also marks their best start in ACC play since 2013 with three undefeated games.
Looking ahead, Virginia Tech will now shift their focus towards their upcoming match against High Point on Tuesday. The Hokies will be aiming to maintain their positive momentum and continue their strong offensive form when they take on High Point at Thompson Field.
