October 11, 2003

BOSTON, Mass. - Freshman Brent Dillie picked the right time to score his first goal of the year Saturday. Dillie gained control of a loose ball in front of the Boston College net in the 107th minute of double overtime and slammed the ball to the back of the net, lifting the 16th-ranked Virginia Tech men's soccer team to a 2-1 BIG EAST win over the Eagles.

The Hokies improved to 9-3-1 overall and 4-2-0 in the league, while the Eagles slipped to 5-5-2 and 3-3-1 in the conference.

Dillie provided the heroics to help the Hokies improve to 4-1-0 in road matches this season. His goal ended a tough match as both teams battled to a dead heat for almost 80 minutes. The Hokies scored a goal in the 21st minute, and Boston College answered in the 28th minute.

At 20:30, Hokie freshman Ben Nason scored his second goal of the year to give his team a one-goal lead. Nason knocked in a one-timer after a cross from freshman defender Chad Steuck. Steuck registered his first career assist on the play. The Eagles' Jarryd Goldberg then tied the contest at 1-1 with a redirected shot at 27:30. He redirected Adam Pfeifer's shot past Hokie keeper Chase Harrison for the score.

Virginia Tech, the BIG EAST leader in shots per match, tallied 22 for the match, including four in the second overtime period. The Hokies held Boston College to only 10 shots. Hokie sophomore Peer Rogge led the Hokie attack with three shots-on-goal, while sophomore Greg Roach chipped in with a pair of shots-on-goal. Harrison posted another productive day, stopping six Eagle shots.

The Hokies will take this week off before returning to action at home next Saturday night. The Hokies are scheduled to host St. John's at 7 p.m. on Oct. 18 in a crucial BIG EAST match.
