Women's Ice Hockey
Dropping Friday night contest and tying Saturday afternoon dropped the Crimson even farther down the ECAC ladder.
In their first non-conference game of the year, Harvard women’s hockey (1-5-0, 1-4-0 ECAC) fell to UNH (4-10-0, 3-5-0 Hockey East) in a hard-fought overtime battle. The contest marked their fifth straight loss, and third one-goal loss in a row.
Despite taking the lead against both teams early on, the Crimson (1-4-0, 1-4-0) was unable to hold onto its leads, falling by a 2-1 margin to both opponents to extend the team’s losing streak to four games.
The Harvard women’s hockey team doesn’t believe in rebuilding years. After graduating five seniors last year and recruiting six new freshmen to the ice in Cambridge, the team is prepared to prove wrong those who view the 2016-2017 season as one solely for growth.
With winter coming to Cambridge, the attention in the sports sphere shifts indoors as the Harvard basketball and hockey squads begin their seasons.
The Crimson was held scoreless in the two games it played on the road this weekend.
After the first 20 minutes went scoreless, a flurry of goals went in favor of Harvard as they went on to beat Dartmouth , 5-1.
