Hockey beats Merrimack and other links

In a midweek battle, the Hockey team held off Merrimack 2-1.

Stephen Gionta is sidelined with an injury, but is still getting attention from his hometown paper.

A new kicker is on the way. I will have more on him Thursday.

If the kicker isn't worth a scholarship is he really a solution? Or just more of the same. No half measures, please!

Steve Aponovicious didn't come to BC on a scholarship.

My point exactly. All he was, was better than Ohliger. We couldn't try kicks outside 35 yards. That's not a D1 kicker to me.

Re: Aponavicius

"Joined the team as a walk-on and is the all-time scoring leader in Boston College history with 290 points...ranks first all-time in field goal percentage (.734) and extra points made (149) and is second in field goals (47)."

Selected FG over 35 yards:
42 yards vs. Maryland
37 yards vs. NC State

36 yards vs. Georgia Tech

37 yards in ACC Champ Game
40 yards vs. Clemson
45 yards vs. Bowling Green

36 yards vs. Virginia Tech in the first organized football game of his life

37 yards as time expired to win bowl game

I don't understand it. Why can BC not recruit a top level kicker? Wouldn't a high school kid in that position jump at guarantee to start right away?

*a guarantee. Sorry about that.
