    In what was hard fought, defensive battle the Eagles from Boston College walked out of Atlanta with the 21-14 win over in conference opponent Georgia Tech.

    The biggest plays in the game came during the 2nd quarter. Eagles QB Josh Bordner, who was replacing injured starter Chase Rettig, threw a 65 yard TD pass to Spiffy Evans putting the visitors on top 10-0. Not long after, the Yellow Jackets got on the scoreboard with an 82 yard run from RB David Sims. And so that's where the score stood, 10-7 heading into the fourth quarter.

    The Eagles had a 6 point lead with 1min left in the game when GA. Tech HB Orwin Smith scored from 1 yard out to give his team the 1 point lead with just :40 remaining.

    Boston College rose to the moment and were able to quickly score with a 2 play drive ending with 35 yard TD pass to TE Chris Pantale. A 2point conversion from Colin Larmond gave the Eagles the 7 point lead and not enough time on the clock for the Yellow Jackets.

    With the win the Eagles jump above .500 again. The team needs to figure out how to put otgether a winning streak so that they can develop a winning culture that the younger student athletes want to carry into the future.
