Hot from a 12-4 victory over Brown freshmen Wednesday, the unbeaten Harvard freshmen hockey team faces a strong challenge at Boston College today at B.C.
The freshman skaters' second line--center Bob Farrell, right wing Jim Baldasarri, and left wing Ron Mark, broke through for ten of the twelve goals against Brown. Baldassarri scored twice with six assists, while Mark knocked in five goals with three assists.
Until Brown, the three freshman lines had scored fairly evenly. The Crimson's powerful first line of attack, led by center Jack Turce and winged by Dick Delany and Andre Lemieux, could not penetrate during the Brown game.
Today's rival, Boston College, lost its only game of the season, 5-1 to Brown's freshmen last week. B.C. has two strong forward lines, the first centered by high school record holder Tim Sheehy from Minnesota.
Harvard's coach Nat Harris rates the B.C. game as "a toss-up," in spite of his squad's strong record. He said of Boston's loss that "They outplayed Brown, but couldn't score." Brown's goalie compiled an amazing 54 saves in the game.
Today's game should be a good show of attacking power. Harvard goalie Peter Meehan expects that the three shortened, fifteen-minute periods may favor Boston College's fast two-line attack, but Harvard's three lines should penetrate the mediocre B.C. defensive unit.
