|BC 6, Kent State 3 – Halftime summary||09.11.10 at 5:44 pm ET|
CHESTNUT HILL — How ugly was it in the first 30 minutes at Alumni Stadium?
Boston College gained only 129 yards and still outgained Kent State by 27 yards.
Nate Freese connected on field goals of 27 and 22 yards to help BC take a 6-3 lead before an understandably understimulated home crowd.
BC’s go-ahead field goal came on the last play of the first half and capped the best offensive series of the half for the Eagles, 11 plays, 74 yards in the final 4 minutes, 54 seconds.
Dave Shinskie had his struggles to say the least. Before leading his team inside the 10, he was pulled once in the first half for ineffective play and couldn’t budge the offense when given a first-and-goal at the Kent 8 following a 22-yard interception return by Alex Albright.
Sophomore Mike Marscovetra came in and actually fared worse, going 1-for-3 and throwing a pick at midfield.
The highlight for the Eagles came on defense. In addition to Albright’s pick, they held Kent’s passing game – once led by Julian Edelman – to 13-of-23 for 87 yards and two interceptions.
