Senior Zeiko Lewis scored his fourth goal in this postseason in the 82nd minute for the lone goal of the match as Boston College advance in the NCAA Championships with a 1 - 0 win over Fordham.
Lewis has scored all four Boston College goals this postseason, that includes tonight's strike and three in the ACC Championship.
Sophomore Simon Enstrom provided the assist on the game-winner, while another sophomore Cedric Saladin made two saves in goal for his seventh shutout of the season.
The turning point of the game came when Enstrom made a nice run on the right side and then found Lewis in the box who scored for the 1-0 lead.
Boston College controlled the pace for the entirety of the first half but couldn't find the net.
Five of those shots were on target, but Fordham keeper Rashid Nuhu made four saves in the first 11 minutes to keep BC at bay. He had 10 total in the match.
Enstrom saw his first action at the start of the second half and made an immediate impact. The Eagles had their best chance of the night 1:03 after the whistle when he took a shot from the right side, but it was saved.
Freshman Lasse Lehmann and Enstrom had a couple of more shots on target but were also turned away.
Fordham nearly scored with 12 minutes left when Bart Dziedzic found himself open in front of Saladin. He took a shot, but Saladin got low and made the save.
Lewis finally struck in the 82nd minute to give Boston College the 1-0 lead, Fordham almost equalized 46 seconds later after a corner kick, as a scramble in the box got to Eric Ohlendorf. He fired a shot, but junior Mohammed Moro was on the line and made the save to preserve the lead.
