Still reeling from a discouraging 5-3 defeat to Vermont last Saturday, the Harvard men's hockey team continued to falter, suffering a 4-1 loss at the University of Hampshire last night.
In 10 games this season the Crimson has allowed 35 goals, 22 of which were tallied in the final stanza.
Last night was no different, as Harvard allowed UNH, a team that is struggling to score goals, to dominate the entire game and notch three points, including the game-winner, in the third.
After being stoned on a breakaway only minutes before, Wildcats' winger Darren Haydar capitalized on his second attempt. Defenseman Mich Mounsey sent a pass across the slot, and Haydar slid the puck across the goalmouth.
Senior goaltender Oliver Jonas leapt to his side to make a diving save but wasn't in time, putting UNH ahead 2-0 in the final frame.
"UNH really took it to us the entire game from start to finish," Jonas said. "We were prepared to play their game, but we just didn't come out tonight."
Although the two teams remained scoreless after the first stanza, the Wildcats clearly held the edge.
Jonas saw a lot of action on his side of the ice, but continued to rise to the occasion. At 3:40 in to the first, Jonas stopped a one-on-one charge by UNH defensman Garrett Stafford after he stripped the Crimson of the puck in the neutral zone.
