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 […]

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.

Men’s basketball prevails in overtime over Lafayette College

Joe Jones, head coach of the Boston University men’s basketball team, knows that there are no giveaway games in the competitive Patriot League. So when his side faced off against No. 10 Lafayette College on the road Saturday in a matchup of teams seemingly headed in opposite directions, Jones told the Terriers (14-11, 7-5 Patriot League) to be ready for a […]

Last year’s iteration of the Boston University men’s lacrosse team threatened opposing goalkeepers via a small handful of players, and it already appears as though a different tale will unfold in 2016. Seven different Terriers (1-0) fired past Providence’s (0-1) Tate Boyce in Saturday’s 9-5 win, demonstrating the scarlet and white’s tendency to spread the wealth around. Freshman attack James […]
