John Glessner's career day sends No. 15 Army past Boston University

  The Black Knights had three players score at least three goals in the same game for the first time since 2010.

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- John Glesener recorded a career-high nine points as 15th-ranked Army cruised to a 17-8 win against Boston University to win its third consecutive conference game.

Army (8-3, 4-2 PL) saw Glesener tie his career high with six goals, which was the most since last year's six-goal effort in the season finale at Notre Dame. He handed out three assists, tying a season high. Connor Cook and Cole Johnson each tallied four goals and an assist for five points. Overall, the Black Knight had six different goal scorers. Sam Somers got the start in net and made seven saves, while Paul Newbold was tested in the fourth quarter and made two stops in relief.

"Our execution today was great and at a very high level," said head coach Joe Alberici. "A couple of weeks in a row our offense was playing at a very high level, so my staff and I were very pleased with that. When you get 15 goals from your attack position, you are going to win a lot of games."

The Terriers (6-4, 3-3 PL) came into the game tied with Army for second in the Patriot League. They were led by Ryan Hilburn, who tallied three goals and an assist for four points. Adam Schaal finished with three points, while Cal Dearth had two helpers. Colin McDougall earned his second straight start and made 11 saves in the loss.

Army scored six goals in two of the four quarters and outshot the Terriers by a 49-28 advantage. The Black Knights won the ground ball battle by a 30-25 margin. Both teams failed on two man up chances and Army forced Boston University into four failed clears in 15 opportunities.
