Last Time Out
Wake Forest ran its unbeaten streak to six straight games (4-0-2) on Tuesday night by defeating Davidson on the road 2-0.
Luca Gimenez scored the game winner - his fourth goal in two games - and Jared Watts added the insurance goal. Michael Gamble and Sam Fink assisted on the goals.
Michael Lisch recorded his seventh shutout of the season, putting him a tie for ninth place all-time on Wake Forest's single season record list. His goals against average dropped to 0.51 in the win.
Like the Deacs, Boston College has also not lost in a while with a four-game unbeaten streak (3-0-1).
Most recently, BC tied at Harvard 1-1 after winning three straight games (San Francisco, Rhode Island, NC State).
The Eagles are led on offense by Charlie Rugg with four goals and four assists. Rugg shared ACC Player of the Week honors with Luca Gimenez this week.
With a relatively short history between the two schools, Boston College owns a narrow 4-3-2 advantage over Wake Forest.
The Demon Deacons have never lost at home to the Eagles, as they have a 2-0-1 record at Spry Stadium.
BC protected its home turf last year with a 2-0 win on Oct. 7.
Wake Forest will hit the road for two straight, including a game at ETSU on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and one at Virginia on Friday at 7 p.m.
