Charity Classic raises $55,000; former Terriers and Eagles fill the nets

More than $55,000 was raised at last night’s Comm Ave Charity Classic, held at Walter Brown Arena as former Terriers and Eagles put on a show for the fans.  In a predictably high-scoring contest, BU knotted the score at six apiece early in the third period on a Pete MacArthur goal, but the visitors took charge and pulled away, eventually adding two empty-netters for a 13-8 win. 

The fund-raiser benefited Compassionate Care ALS and the Travis Roy Foundation.

Jack Parker was behind the Terrier bench and longtime rival Jerry York coached the BC alums.

 “It brings back a lot of memories,” said Chris Higgins, who was part of BU’s 2009 national title team. “In the locker room and on the bench, guys were just talking about the good old days. [And Jack Parker] came in after one of the periods, joking around, and started yelling at us trying to pick it up.”
