BOSTON - The Boston College women's hockey team went toe-to-toe with sixth-ranked Harvard in the Beanpot Championship game but ultimately fell, 5-4, to the Crimson at Matthews Arena.

That 1-0 lead would hold into the first intermission. Maddie Crowley-Cahill pulled the Eagles even twice in the middle frame, doing it just 57 seconds in and then answering another Harvard goal five minutes later. The teams then combined for five goals over the final 15 minutes of play, with Harvard taking the 5-4 lead with just over three minutes to play.
