Junior defenseman Tommy Cross launched the game-winning slap shot past three Boston University defenders for the Boston College Eagles to win 3-2 in overtime in front of the 17,565 in attendance last night at the TD Garden. The victory puts the 20-6 Eagles into the Beanpot finals for the 31st time. “It feels awesome,” said Cross after the game. “Obviously, it’s a great feeling to win the game. So much went into that goal. The faceoff win, the screen. The goal was just the cherry on the top.”
Northeastern University is set to contest BC next week following their dominant 4-0 win over Harvard in Monday night’s other Semifinal contest.

Boston College and Northeastern will face off at 8:00 PM. 2011 Boston Beanpot tickets are now available!
With the 59th annual Boston Beanpot tournament approaching, the BC Eagles were able to remind the BU Terriers who the current champions were in last week’s 3-2 victory in front of the 6,150 in attendance at the Agganis Arena. The Eagles have won all three contests against Hockey East opponents so far this season.
“We really had an excellent start, our first period was one of our best all year,” said BC coach Jerry York. “I thought the goaltenders were strong and we each controlled a period. They controlled the second, and the third was just back and forth.” BC and BU will face off in the Beanpot Semifinals Monday, February 7th at the TD Garden.
The Northeastern Huskies and Harvard Crimson will also matchup that day with February 14th reserved for the second round. The Huskies currently hold the advantage in light of their mid-January 3-0 win over Harvard. Find the best Boston Beanpot ticket deals with us at AceTicket.com!
After a competitive 2-1 win over the UMass Lowell Riverhawks last Saturday, the Boston University Terriers are now 6-0-1 overall and 4-0-1 in league play. Junior forward Chris Connolly has provided the go-ahead score in their last two contests, racking up a total of eight points in seven games. They are currently the only team in the Hockey East without a loss as UMass and Vermont struggle to earn their first victories of the season.
Many are surprised at the Terriers early success in light of the amount of freshman taking on important roles between Sahir Gill, Charlie Coyle and Adam Glendening. “Losing the seniors and the early departures, we were going to need a lot of contributions from the new guys,” said Connolly. “It’s tough when you come in as a freshman and get thrown right into the fire, but the guys who have been in the lineup have done more than a great job. It’s a testament to them that they’re comfortable enough to step in and play so confidently. That’s only going to help us down the road.” The Terriers are next scheduled to take on the University of Maine Black Bears on Saturday, November 6th at the Agganis Arena.
