Freshman Kalley Armstrong scored her first career goal—the game-winner—in today's 3-1 win over Colgate.
After suffering the first loss of its season last night to No. 2 Cornell, the No. 10 Harvard women’s hockey team bounced back for a 3-1 win over Colgate (3-7-0, 1-3-0 ECAC)–its first win on the road. The No. 10 Crimson (2-1-1, 2-1-1) was led by tri-captain Kate Buesser, who tallied her first of the year to tie the game at one after the Raider’s Jenna Klynstra notched the opening goal of the game.
Harvard continued its scoring run in the third period, with the help of freshman Kalley Armstrong and tri-captain Leanna Coskren, who each found the back of the net for the Crimson.
Crimson sophomore goaltender Laura Bellamy did her part for the victory, making 20 saves to keep Colgate to just a lone goal. The win was Bellamy’s second on the season. The Raiders’ Kimberly Sass recorded 31 saves in the loss.
Harvard will hit the road again next weekend to face Quinnipiac and Princeton on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Have you gotten your Harvard-Yale ticket yet? Well, you better go to the Murr Center soon if you haven’t, because tomorrow is the last day to pick up free tickets. And while you’re down by the river, you can check out these exciting matchups happening at home this weekend.
After taming the Tigers and taking down the Big Green the last two weekends, the Harvard football team takes on the Columbia Lions. Now 5-2 for the season, the men return home after two games on the road for the matchup tomorrow at noon. In last year’s meeting, Harvard dominated the match, scoring 14 points in the first six minutes of the game. The Crimson extended the lead to 34-0 in the fourth quarter, and Harvard won the game, 34-14. This will be the 69th meeting between the teams, with Harvard leading 53-14-1.
As Harvard students we’re all experts in procrastination, but there’s one thing you don’t want to put off.
Tomorrow is the last day for undergraduates to pick up free tickets for the 127th playing of The Game at Harvard Stadium on Nov. 20.
With the matchup only two weeks away, there’s just enough time to catch up on the history of one of the oldest rivalries in college football.
The first meeting between Harvard and Yale took place in New Haven, Conn. in 1875 and ended with the Crimson pulling out the 4-0 victory (at the time the only way to score was on the equivalent of a PAT). Since then, the Bulldogs have gained a 65-53-8 advantage in the series.
The matchup wasn’t referred to as “The Game” until 1898 in a letter between Harvard’s captain and head coach. The name was then made popular in the mid-1900s, when press coverage of the rivalry increased.
To get in on the tradition, make sure to pick up a free ticket at the Murr Center Ticket Office or Bright Hockey Arena Ticket Window sometime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. tomorrow. After then, tickets will be available for purchase.
With its 3-2 loss to Dartmouth, the Harvard women’s soccer team may have just missed its shot at a three-peat as Ivy League champions, but certain team members still have reason to celebrate.
On Tuesday, ESPN The Magazine named co-captain Katherine Sheeleigh and junior midfielder Melanie Baskind to its Academic All-District team.
Each Thursday, The Crimson will compile a series of unique statistics about Harvard's sports scene. Welcome to the Magic of Numbers—without the problem sets. We'll do the math for you.
1: Number of starts by junior quarterback Collier Winters this season, which came in last week’s 30-14 shellacking of Dartmouth.
212: Yards thrown by Winters in the win over the Big Green.
-18: Yards rushing allowed by Harvard’s defense against Columbia last year. The stout run defense–led by tackles Josue Ortiz and Chuks Obi–will look to again stuff the Lions’ running attack this Saturday at home.
53: Wins against Columbia all-time for Harvard. The Lions have mustered only 14 wins against the Crimson.
