Former Cents forward Wade MacLeod was among the ex-BCHLers had a major impact in the Beanpot consolation game last night. Here’s the wrap from the New England Hockey Journal:

Wade MacLeod scored twice in the third period to complete a thorough, 4-1 victory for Northeastern over Harvard in the consolation game of the Beanpot Monday.

Tyler McNeely opened the scoring for Northeastern late in the first, taking a cruise up the left wing boards and in toward the Harvard net to beat Ryan Carroll with a quick backhander with 2:07 left.

Northeastern made it 2-0 just 1:24 into the second period on Greg Costa’s rebound swipe. Harvard got on the board midway through the period when Conor Morrison scored off a draw, but the Crimson were all done scoring with that.

Northeastern added a pair in the third, with MacLeod’s redirect off a Garrett Vermeersch slap shot making it 3-1, and MacLeod’s empty-netter icing it.

Chris Rawlings made another solid start for Northeastern, turning aside 27 Harvard shots and briefly owning the tournament’s best save percentage, .953 (60 saves, three goals allowed).

I received this email from Tammy Bangsund on behalf of the Merritt Tracker Sportswear Midget Reps. It’s a recap of their best-of-three series against Kelowna, which they dropped Game One last weekend.
