UNC got an early try, but Calderwood added a score for the Crimson to tie the game up at five apiece.

Emba added another score to give Harvard its only lead of the contest, 10-5

“We had momentum going in the right direction,” Haber said. “It was a really good showing out of the gate, and it kind of just fell off a bit. I guess it was a defensive lapse for the most part after that. Through the middle of the game, we let them get a couple too many in.”

The Tar Heels rallied with four-straight unanswered tries to take a 29-10 lead in the second frame, but the Crimson responded, as Lin added a score to close the deficit.

“We definitely picked it up in the second half, but it was too late to recover the score,” Haber said.

Despite a late push, Harvard ultimately failed to score any more tries, and the final score stood at 29-15, knocking the Crimson out of the championship bracket.
