This Day In Boston College History

October 16, 2015: 

Boston College 5 Wisconsin 0: Led by two goals by Austin Cangelosi and Colin White, Boston College took care of business at home against the Badgers. Goalie Thatcher Demko completed the shutout stopping all 20 shots by Wisconsin. 


Steve Addazio on his defense this week:

"We're in the same place we have been. If you watch our defense right now we're a little bit of a roller coaster ride. And what we have to learn to do is handle adversity a little bit. We make a lot of mistakes right now and we have to learn how to grow up and handle that. It's not like, oh, this guy's getting blocked into here and, oh, we're getting mauled or -- no, no, no. What it is is we have a lot mistakes being made we have got some coverages being blown and I thought we did a good job of starting to tap that back down the couple weeks before that. And then it showed up a little bit again. We lost essentially our whole secondary and the Hamp deal hurt us and the McDuffie deal hurt us too. So on top of everybody we lost, we also lost those two guys that really should have been functioning within the framework."
