O ''- i Page 10 POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 29, 2010 STEVEN P. TAURO We said goodbye to a very good guy this week. Steven Tauro was a student-athlete at Christopher Columbus High School. He was an energetic young man, full of life, full of love for his family and friends. He loved East Boston and his Christopher Columbus family, especially his teammates. We all loved him. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. The love I saw at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church was Steve Tauro. The love I felt at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church was Steve Tauro. CATHOLIC SCHOOL WEEK Catholic School Week begins on Sunday, January 31st. This year's theme is "Catho- lic Schools: Dividends for Life", which focuses on Catholic schools commitment to infuse students with the faith, knowledge, morals and disciplines that will help them to lead fulfilling lives. Visit your Catholic school this week, many activities will be taking place. We are fortunate to have Catholic schools in Boston.

HIGH SCHOOL PREP NOTEBOOK On the basketball court East Boston headed into its big rival battle with Charlestown with three more wins. The Jets defeated Fitchburg 72-56, Southie 83-75 and Latin Academy 83-68. St. Clem- ent, led by Carlos Ribeiro's 24 points topped Maimonides 68-48, but fell to Trinity Catho- lic 76-70. St. John's Prep defeated Xaverian 68-53 and BC High 69-58. Winthrop topped Revere 77-52. In girls hoop East Boston was defeated by Latin Academy 58-18. On the ice Eastie is having its problems. The Jets were defeated by Trinity Catholic 10-2. In a makeup game Marian ripped St. Clement 9-2. Boston Latin and Tewks- bury battled to a 2-2 tie. CM is still numero uno. The Knights tipped Malden Catholic 4-2, topped LaSalle (RI) 4-1 and shutout BC High 2-0. BC High was also knocked out by Needham 8-4. Arlington Catholic won the big Catholic Central battle defeating St. Mary's of Lynn 3-1, but BOTH teams lost the war, penalized for an after game handshake fight. Better news for St. Mary's of Lynn girls, who defeated Fontbonne 4-2 extending their win streak to 631 MEMORIES AND HOCKEY AT MATTHEW ARENA Believe it or not I attended my first col- lege hockey game of the season at North- eastern during the week. The opponent was Providence, and both teams fought hard for the much needed Hockey East points. For me, equally important as the game was, the newly renovated building, now very ready for its 100th anniversary to be celebrated on April 16% 2010. New lighting, new seats, new scoreboards, a fantastic new press box, which "almost" puts you on the ice, and new concession stands in the newly renovated lobby. The old Boston Arena is sparkling once again, and yes, after over 30 years French fries, a Boston Arena staple, are back. My first stop! On the ice the game was great. Sitting where I was you really under- stand how fast the game is. Dave Strathman opened the scoring at 1:18 of the In-st period, much to the delight of the Huskie fans, but with just seconds to go Friar lan O'Connor tied it up at 19:48. In period 2 Jake Norton broke the tie giving NU a 2-1 lead on the power play tally. Up and down they went with some pretty good goaltending by Chris Rawlings (NU) and Alex Beaudry (PC) in between. At 19:42 of the third Huskie Tyler McNeely put it out of reach. Thanks in large part in a Providence miscue. Final North- eastern 3, Providence 1. Many nights were spent at the old Boston Arena, especially Fridays, watching the old Met League dominated by a small school in the North End called Christopher Columbus. We loved the hockey and we loved to eat those French fries! Funny how French fries can bring back such great memories. BEANPOT TIME The 58th Annual Beanpot takes place at TD Garden Monday, February Ist, and Mon- day, February 8% In the opening round BC plays Harvard at 5:00 pm and BU takes on Northeastern at 8:00 pm. The consolation game on February 8th begins at 5:00 pm, fol- lowed by the consolation game at 8:00 pm. The Womens Beanpot will be played at Harvard on Tuesday, February 2"d, when Northeastern plays BU at 5:00 pm and Harvard takes on BC at 8:00 pm. The con- solation game at 5:00 pm, and champion- ship game at 8:00 pm will take place on Tuesday, February 9% COLLEGE BOARD: BU, BC ... AGAIN: Homer has his "Iliad and Odyssey", we have our BU-BC hockey! Chapter 249 was added to this epic. Both teams picked up right where they left off from Fenway's Frozen Pond. Period 1 Dave Warsofsy (BU) scores, Cam Atkinson (BC) scores, Chris Krieder (BC) scores, Vin Saponari (BU) scores, 2-2 after the first period. In period 2 it was all BU. Terriers Wade Megan and Nick Bonino gave BU a 4-2 second period lead. Period 3 it was all BC. Eagle Chris Krieder made it 4-3, and at 14:28 Eagle Pat Mullane tied it up 4-4. Conte Forum was rocking. Overtime, of course, what else this is BU-BC[ 7,884, a sellout, were on their feet. With a minute gone in the five minute OT Terrier Colby Cohen's scored his 8th goal of the season to give BU a 5-4 win. Terrier's fans went home happy. Eagle fans went home in complete shock. BU wins regular season series. In other Hockey East action UNH came up the big winners. The Wildcats defeated Providence 3-2 on Phil DeSimone OT goal, and toppled "No Show" BU 4-I. The only high- light for the Terriers was the introduction of 1960 Olympic Hockey USA Gold Medalist Dick Rodenhiser, and maybe the final horn. In the Providence game Wildcat Bobby Butler became the 67th UNH player to score his I00th career point. UNH has 25 points, and is still in first place in Hockey East. Lowell had a great weekend holding off Merrimack 5-4, and stinging BC 3-1. Merrimack defeated Providence 2-1, and UMass topped Vermont 3-1. In ECAC action Harvard is on a roll. The Crimson defeated Dartmouth 4-2, stunned ranked Union 4-1, and battled Rensselaer to 3-3 OT tie. Tommy DeRosa is hot, Tufts is not. Tommy had a hat trick when the Jumbos dropped Suffolk 7-2, and a goal in a 3-2 loss to Bowdoin, but Tufts has dropped three of their last four games. In Womens Hockey Northeastern is in first place in Hockey East. DEADLINE STOPPER East Boston Boys Bastetball team was upset by Charlestown 86-81 in overtime.
