A late goal by Boston College sophomore Quinn Smith gave the Eagles a 1-0 lead after the first period. The Eagles took a while to get going, but finally got on track and dominated the last half of the frame.
Smith scored a goal from in tight which he lifted over Harvard goaltender Raphael Girard. The score came after a failed clearing attempt.
For Harvard, the goal has to be demoralizing. Ted Donato's club played well for much of the period, but all the momentum will swing in BC's favor with the late tally.
