Congratulations to Boston College senior defender Chris Ager, named the Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week according to an announcement by the league office.
Ager scored both of Boston College's goals in a 2-1 OT victory at Boston University in the Terriers' first game as a member of the Patriot League. The Gjettum, Norway, native tallied the equalizer in the 48th minute on a header off a corner kick. He then scored the game-winning goal with 34 seconds left in overtime.
The captain came into this season with just one career goal back in 2011.
In addition to earning conference accolades, Ager was also named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week for his two-goal performance.
Even you don't get your fill of #TheRivalry on Friday night, Boston College (1-0-1) will host No. 17 Wake Forest (1-1-0) on Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the opening weekend of ACC play. Pitt-N.C. State, Duke-Maryland, Syracuse-Virginia Tech, Virginia-Clemson and North Carolina-Notre Dame round out the opening ACC men's soccer action this weekend.
