Sports Comedy Corner: Give Cam Newton a break

Cam Newton hung his head and mumbled one-word answers. He exhibited the same negative body language we saw for much of the Super Bowl as he sat in front of the media. The 2015 NFL MVP was dejected, heartbroken and embarrassed, and he couldn’t take it anymore. So he walked away. The media is criticizing Cam this week for leaving […]

Maddie Elia steps up in women’s hockey Beanpot loss

Before the Beanpot Tournament’s consolation game, BU head coach Brian Durocher stressed the necessity of a fast start in order to defeat a very capable Harvard University squad. The Terriers (17-11-2, 14-4-2 Hockey East) did exactly that, tallying three first-period goals in a 5-3 loss to Harvard (14-9-2, 10-6-2 Ivy League) Tuesday night. Junior center Maddie Elia struck for two […]

Women’s hockey drops Beanpot game to Harvard University

Relegated to the Beanpot consolation game for the fourth consecutive season, the Boston University women’s hockey team saw defeat snatched from the jaws of victory in its 5-3 loss to Harvard University Tuesday afternoon.

Overtime goal gives Boston College Beanpot title over men’s hockey

It took less than two minutes of overtime during Monday’s Beanpot Tournament final for the game to be over, just like last year. Only this time, the No. 7 Boston University men’s hockey team wasn’t the beneficiary of the quick golden goal. No. 3 Boston College was. In the first Beanpot final to end in a 1-0 score, the Terriers […]

Sean Maguire named Beanpot MVP, most outstanding goaltender

Sean Maguire was swarmed with 23 shots in the first period, and he stopped every single one. “It could’ve been 4-0 if it weren’t for Sean,” Quinn said in reflection of the poor start for the No. 7 Boston University men’s hockey team against No. 3 Boston College in the Beanpot final Monday at TD Garden. The senior goaltender stopped […]

Women’s hockey faces Harvard in Beanpot consolation game

As hosts of the Beanpot Tournament, the Boston University women’s hockey team came into last week with the chance to vie for a title on its own campus. After faltering Feb. 2 to No. 6 Northeastern University, the Terriers’ (17-10-2, 14-4-2 Hockey East) Beanpot woes continued. Consequently, head coach Brian Durocher’s team will now take on Harvard University Tuesday afternoon […]

Fish and Chipps: “The Fraternity”

Fish and Chipps: “The Fraternity”

As I walked into The Boston Globe for my first day of work in the summer of 2014 to begin my six-month co-op covering high school sports, I was a hot mess. Besides the fact that I had no idea how to pronounce any of those peculiar Massachusetts town names, I couldn’t find a story to save my life or […]
