For the fifth consecutive year, Boston College brought home the Beanpot championship, defeating Northeastern 4-1, in a game far closer than the score suggests. And with the win came city bragging rights, already being exercised Tuesday morning by the reigning Eagles:
Morning all – Happy Beanpot Championship Tuesday!

Walk into da club like whaddup I got da Beanpot. #BC #Beanpot
“It’s awesome,” said Patrick Brown, who’s game-winning goal propelled BC to a new school record, to the Associated Press. “It’s always nice to bring [the Beanpot] back to campus.”
Boston College’s streak is now the second-longest in the game’s 62-year history. Rival Boston University still holds the record, having won six in a row from 1995-2000. In better news for BC, Boston University lost the Beanpot consolation game Monday night to Harvard, 6-2 — the same team who lost to Northeastern 6-0 just last week.
Northeastern’s loss to BC leaves the University in a dismal 27-year drought; the Huskies haven’t skated away with the treasured trophy since 1988. So, while Boston College won their fifth-straight title, Northeastern lost their chance at nabbing their fifth win in the tournament’s history.
From the pictures, it’s say to say Boston College isn’t feeling sorry for Northeastern, though. Just take a look for yourself.
