Postgame Recap: Holy Cross holds on 5-4 Against BC

Written by 

Perhaps the Boston College Eagles consumed too much Turkey on Thanksgiving, as the team was sluggish through the first two periods of the game and it appeared as if the effects of tryptophan still lingered.

After entering the second period trailing 2-1, the Eagles lethargic effort cost them, as the Crusaders netted three of the eight shots they put on target.

In his first game back from a hamstring injury, Eagles goalie Thatcher Demko was not his usual stellar self, letting in a couple soft goals and displaying clear signs of rust.

Meanwhile his counterpart, Matt Ginn was a brickwall in net, stopping 20 of BC's 21 shots through the first two periods.

But in the third period, Jerry York's team came alive, reeling off three goals to cut the lead to 5-4. With momentum heavily in its favor and the crowd at Conte Forum having sprung to life, Holy Cross defenseman Jake Bolton was called for hooking with 3:30 remaining. It was then that York decided to use his timeout. He spoke to CLNS about what was said during the huddle.

Here is what Holy Cross's Mike Barrett, who had two goals and was the game's first star, goalie Matt GInn, who finished with 34 saves on 38 shots and head coach Paul Pearl had to say after the victory.
