Women storm into Beanpot Final

The Terrier Women’s team thumped Harvard, 5-2, in the Women’s Beanpot first round, earning the chance to do what no BU squad—men or women—has done: win a Beanpot title on home ice. Terriers will matchup next Wednesday at Walter Brown Arena against Northeastern, which claimed a shootout win over BC following a 1-1 overtime tie.

Terriers received goals from Jill Cardella, Karleigh Fratkin, Marie-Philip Poulin, Isabel Menard and captain Jenn Wakefield, to build a 5-0 lead before the Crimson scored two third-period goals. Taylor Holze and Kayla Tutino each contributed a pair of assists. Kerrin Sperry made 25 saves for BU, which had 38 shots on the night.

In the space of seven days, the Terriers have beaten all three other Beanpot schools when each was ranked in the top ten: BC #4, Northeastern #6 and Harvard #8. The three wins were by a cumulative 14-4 margin.

Looking ahead
In matchup of the two top-rated Massachusetts high school teams, defending champion Malden Catholic defeated second-ranked St. John’s Prep, 5-2, behind two goals from 2013 recruit Brendan Collier. According to the Salem News, 2013 recruit “Sam Kurker, who assisted on both goals to give him 37 points in 14 games, had another big game and created time and space for himself and his linemates.” Kurker had recently tallied his 100th career point for the Eagles.
