2015 Women’s Ice Hockey Beanpot

Hockey is always one of my favorite sports to shoot. While the men’s players in college are trying to show off for NHL scouts, the women’s players seem to play even harder as they vie for a spot on their country’s Olympic team. On this ice for this year’s women’s Beanpot finals between Boston College and Harvard were an number of Olympians. Harvard ended up winning, handing BC it’s first loss of the season.

The 62nd Beanpot

If you try to talk to someone outside of Boston about The Beanpot, they will wonder why you are striking up a conversation about an obscure piece of kitchenware. However, in Beantown, which incidentally is a name that us locals will cringe at, Beanpot Monday is almost a holiday for much of the population.

The historic college hockey tournament is played on the first two consecutive Mondays every February. Boston College, Northeastern University, Harvard University, and Boston University fight each year for two wins.

This year, the championship game was the same as the previous year; the Boston College Eagles versus the Northeastern Huskies. Like last year, and the three years before that, Boston College came out victorious. Here are some of my favorite photos from the championship game:
