Boston College vs. Yale score update: Arnold lifts Eagles to 1-0 lead after one

CHESTNUT HILL - In front of a quiet but very respectable winter break crowd at Kelley Rink, a pair of nationally-ranked New England foes faced off on Friday night as the No. 2 Boston College Eagles and No. 17 Yale Bulldogs looked to avenge losses last Sunday in their 56th all-time meeting.

Despite trailing by a 1-0 score after twenty minutes, the Elis held a 16-7 shots advantage.

After a quiet start to the contest on both sides, the Eagles, as they so often do, grabbed a 1-0 lead at the 15:46 mark of the stanza on a great effort from junior Bill Arnold. The Needham, Mass. native drove hard to the net to follow up a point shot from rookie Michael Matheson, roofing the rebound over the shoulder of Yale senior Jeff Malcolm for his eighth tally of the season.

On a late penalty to Eagle sophomore Danny Linell, the Bulldogs were able to pepper senior Parker Milner with a flurry of shots, including a pair of nice wristers from sophomore Tommy Fallen, but he was able to get the glove on each of the 16 that headed in his direction.
