Mars and Venus

After watching the Harvard men's hockey team fall 4-0 Monday night to Boston University in the men's Beanpot semi-finals, the Harvard women's hockey team restored some Crimson pride with a 7-0 trouncing of the Terriers' women's team.

In the other semi-finals, the story was similar. Only the names and faces changed.

On Monday night, the Boston College men's team coasted to a 6-0 victory over Northeastern.

But last night, in another reversal of roles, the Northeastern women extracted a little revenge of their own by downing the Eagles 7-0.

Four teams, four games, four shutouts, four different winners, and no surprises.

The No. 3 Terriers (17-6-6) were expected to easily advance past the Crimson to the men's finals. B.U. has won the Beanpot for five consecutive years, and has prevailed in its last twelve Beanpot matches.

On the other hand, Harvard has won only one of its last twelve Beanpot games.

"We expect nothing else than B.U. will play in the Beanpot finals," said Terrier sophomore winger Jack Baker. "We don't like to play in consolations. The last two senior classes have never lost in the Beanpot."
