BOSTON (AP) – Michael Del Mauro scored the go-ahead goal with 2:08 left to give Harvard a victory over Boston University in the Beanpot consolation game on Monday night.

BU, which won the tournament 29 times in its first 58 years, finished fourth for the first time since 1980. Harvard had not beaten BU in the event since 1994.

BU took a 4-3 lead on Alex Chiasson’s second goal, with 5:55 left in the third period. But Danny Biega tied it less than 2 minutes later, and then Del Mauro gave the Crimson the lead less than 2 minutes after that.

Ryan Carroll stopped 45 shots for Harvard (5-18-1). Kieran Millan made 24 saves for BU (14-9-7).
