Still riding high on last weekend's wave of victory, the Harvard men's water polo team learned that the extra incentive of revenge makes winning even sweeter.
The No. 20 Crimson (11-6 overall, 2-1 CWPA) won two consecutive matches last night at Blodgett Pool to follow last weekend's upset win over Navy.
Edged on by its successful performance at the Princeton Invitational over the weekend, the Crimson dominated MIT and Boston College, 17-5 and 7-4, respectively.
"Tonight, we came out strong from the get-go, " captain Tom Elke said. "We played a great defensive game and we were able to mount fast-counter attacks. I'm looking forward to this weekend [against Iona and Brown]."

Last night's win over MIT avenged last week's 12-11 loss to the Engineers and also continued the Crimson's five-game winning streak.
"All I can say is sweet revenge," junior Charlie Cromwell said.
