Boston College Women’s Hockey Wins 2014 Beanpot; Eagles Sweep Tournaments


Boston College’s women’s ice hockey did on Tuesday night what the men did on Monday night: beat the Northeastern Huskies to win the Beanpot.

The ladies defeated their conference rivals in a 3-0 shutout victory to claim their fifth title all-time. This is only the second time in history that both the men and women have won the Beanpot in the same year, with the first being in 2011.

With the victory, the top-ten women improve to 21-5-3 on the season.

Senior goalie Corinne Boyles stopped all 25 Northeastern shots to earn the victory, and she was eventually named the tournament’s top goaltender. Senior forward Taylor Wasylk has been chosen as the tournament’s MVP.

For the Eagles, winning the Beanpot on home ice just a day after the men won a thrilling game down the road has to be rewarding. Both Boston College hockey programs are gearing up for special runs through March as “trophy season” has officially begun.

The ladies will return to the ice this weekend for a two-game road trip to Maine.
