Boston College began their six-game homestand with a 4-2 win Friday over Long Island in their home opener, as they went down two goals early but rebounded from the slow start with four unanswered goals to give them the two-goal victory.
LIU had the lead 55 seconds into the game, as Remy Parker skated down the left wing and wristed one off of the glove of Jacob Fowler and in, before Valtteri Piironen made it 2-0 Sharks with an impressive dangle through the BC defense and past Fowler nine minutes into the period.
However, the Eagles weren't down for long, as Jack Malone sniped one home from the point thanks to the feed from Andre Gasseau to put BC on the board -- before moments later at 6:47 in the first Drew Fortescue picked up a pass at the blue line and walked to the top of the circle and scored the game-tier.
BC then took the lead halfway through the second, with the Eagles going tic-tac-toe before Gasseau wristed one into the back of the net for the 3-2 lead on the power play. The Eagles then added an insurance tally just three minutes later, as Oskar Jellvik two-touched one for the goal in the slot with help from Colby Ambrosio, who faked out Sharks goalie Brandon Perrone with a fake-shot motion which gave an open net to Jellvik.
The Eagles outshot the Sharks 38-12 in the dominant effort, while Conte Forum saw the largest student attendance ever at the arena. Behind the nets were packed as usual while the entire one side of upper-deck bleachers was packed.
Boston College hosts RPI next Friday to continue the homestand.
