The BC Eagles relied heavily on goalie and tournament MVP John Muse for 31 saves as the offense took control with 4 goals to Boston University‘s 3 to claim their 15th Beanpot championship yesterday at the TD Garden. So far this season Muse is 11-6-2 with a .912 save percentage.
“If there’s one thing about John, he’s a competitor. He wants to win. He wants to get those games, he wants to play those minutes,” said BC captain Matt Price. “He did a great job, especially coming off that surgery. He worked really hard.” Barry Almeida solidified the victory with a game-winning score early in the third period. Steve Whitney, Carl Sneep and Chris Kreider notched the other three goals for the Eagles.
The Northeastern Huskies were able to finish strong in the consolation match, easily controlling Harvard 4-1. Wade MacLeod produced two goals in the third period to give his team their 13th win of the season. Rawlings made 27 saves that included 14 in the second period. “The one common thread that is visible when he’s on his game is how aggressive he is and how square to the puck he is,” said Northeastern coach Greg Cronin. “There were very few second shots because he was really controlling the rebounds so well.”
The Boston University Terriers are scheduled to matchup against the Boston College Eagles in the 2010 Beanpot finale following Monday night’s first round in Bruins territory.

Boston College football is scheduled to kick off the 2009 season on Saturday, September 5th at 2:00 pm, when they host their cross-town rival Northeastern Huskies. BC has been getting prepared through four inter-squad scrimmages for the past couple of weeks. “This is an improvement,” said head coach Frank Spaniani. “Obviously, we have to make some (quarterback) decision. I think Dave (Shinskie) is in the mix but obviously if he can’t practice for a week, he’s out of the picture. (Justin) Tuggle has made a lot of strides. He wants to do it and he made some progress.”
Last season BC finished with a 9-5 total record. They advanced all the way to the ACC Championship where they lost to the #26 ranked Virginia Tech. They also competed in the Music City Bowl, but fell short 14-16 to Vanderbilt University. The last time BC and Northeastern met for a football game was in 1999 when BC held on to win 33-22.
