UConn men blank Boston College
STORRS, Conn. -- Redshirt sophomore defender Dylan Greenberg’s 100th-minute goal gave the UConn men’s team a 1-0 extra time victory over Boston College in a non-conference match at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium Tuesday night.

Connecticut had the first chance in the eighth minute when Andrew Geres took a long pass up the right flank and charged put a 22-yard low liner that was saved. In the 20th minute, the Huskies nearly scored as sophomore defender Simen Olafsen headed a corner kick wide left.
In the 49th minute, Sebastian Brems blasted a right-footer from the top of the penalty area high. Awuah nearly linked with Thiam in the 67th minute, threading a through that slipped past Thiam.
In the 81st minute, Thiam rushed into the penalty area and had a shot cleared off the line.
