BEAST OF THE EAST 2012

The 2012 Beast of the East Tournament marked BC's return to the Division 1 bracket, resulting in tougher competition that previous years. In the first game against Yale, the Eagles pulled out a solid victory, overtaking the Ivy team 27 - 0.  The next game was a rematch of the previous weekend against UConn. In a hard-fought game, BC came out on top with a 5 - 0 victory, avenging their previous loss. On the second day of play, BC faced freezing rain and the worst field conditions yet. Against Dartmouth, BC squeaked out a 3 - 0 win with a kick by Addison Powell, advancing them to their second Beast championship in as many years. Unfortunately, BC did not come out on top as they did in 2011, losing in a Boston battle to Northeastern 5 - 0. They are nonetheless pleased with their performance in this year's higher division, and look forward to reclaiming their title in 2013.
