Eagles 0-fer in Beanpot trophies


For the first time in several years, there is no Beanpot trophy on the Heights.

After the men’s team lost to Northeastern in the opening round, the #1-ranked women’s team took its unbeaten record into the arena at Harvard Tuesday, February 10, but lost 3-2 to #4 Harvard, a team BC had beaten 10-2 earlier in the year.

BC’s men’s team had won the five previous Beanpots and the women were defending Beanpot champions before this season’s Beanpot drought.

Against Harvard, BC took a 1-0 lead less than two minutes into the game and outshot Harvard 32-17 in the game. BC advanced to 2-1 but Harvard came back to tie the game and then scored the winning goal when BC’s all-everything Alex Carpenter was in the penalty box for a five-minute major penalty.

The BC men’s team plays in the Beanpot consolation against Harvard on February 23, as the men’s tournament was recheduled because of perpetual snow.
