Conor Morrison netted four goals for the Harvard Crimson in last night’s contest against the Boston University Terriers. Despite his efforts BU rallied back and supplied the final dagger with LW Chris Connolly’s goal 2:18 left in overtime for the Terriers to take this one 6-5 at Bright Hockey Center. The game featured plenty of momentum shifts and lead changes throughout.
Boston University improved to a 4-7-1 record while Harvard remains in desperation with just one regular season win. “Obviously we’re disappointed,” said Harvard coach Ted Donato. “Give a lot of credit to BU. They kept coming…We had a lot of answers and we were able to maintain the lead for most of the night, but they kept coming. As a group, we have to do a better job of being able to hold onto leads and close games out.”
BU and Harvard will likely match up again at the 58th annual Boston Beanpot hockey tournament on February 1st and 8th at the TD Garden. The Terriers defeated Harvard 4-3 in last year’s title match to claim their 29th Beanpot championship. Tickets for the 2010 Beanpot Tournament are available right here with us at AceTicket.com!
