Harvard-Yale brings out the best in Tweeters across campus every year, and the 2015 edition of the rivalry game certainly didn’t disappoint.
Familiar faces will be pitched against each other this weekend in Minnesota, as the No. 8/8 Harvard women’s ice hockey team travels to Duluth, Minn. to take on the No. -/10 University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs in a pair of non-conference tilts.
Junior Sydney Daniels, pictured in action against Rensselaer, scored the first of three Crimson goals to help her team upset the Huskies.
Harvard and Northeastern have faced off each of the last three seasons, with the Crimson emerging victorious all three times. The Crimson’s season so far has included five of eight games being decided by one goal or less. On the other hand, the Huskies have won by two or more goals in nine of their 11 wins.
Junior forward Sydney Daniels, shown here in previous action, notched a goal in Harvard's 3-0 victory over Northeastern Tuesday night.
The Crimson managed to shut out the visiting Huskies, who averaged five goals a game entering the matchup.
Goaltender and co-captain Emerance Maschmeyer recorded her first shutout of the season Wednesday night at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
Senior forward Miye D’Oench, pictured above in the Crimson’s 3-2 win over St. Lawrence on Oct. 31, had the go-ahead goal in Harvard’s 2-1 game against Rensselaer.
The Harvard women’s hockey team celebrates after senior forward Jessica Harvey’s game-tying goal in the second period against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on Saturday.
Returning to the comfort of Bright-Landry after a weekend away from home, the No. 9/9 Harvard women’s ice hockey team extended its winning streak, cruising to a 5-0 victory against cellar dweller Union before pulling out a come-from-behind win against Rensselaer.

While the Harvard women’s hockey team has been busy getting the 2015-2016 season underway in Cambridge, one of its stars has been occupied elsewhere. For the second year in a row, standout senior goalie and co-captain Emerance Maschmeyer left campus to compete for the Canada National Women’s team at the Four Nations Cup, played this year in Sweden.
As Harvard women’s ice hockey takes on Union and Rensselaer this weekend, the team looks to extend its winning streak to five games and continue to pick up more victories against fellow ECAC opponents.
Midterms got you down? Have no fear! There are a few things to look forward to: a Harvard-Yale victory (hopefully), Turkey break, and—as always—an abundance of fine tweets from even finer Crimson athletes. So, please, put down the Economics textbook for a few moments and instead enjoy some of the greatest tweets of the week, courtesy of Harvard Sports:
Freshman wide receiver Justice Shelton-Mosley earned Athlete of the Week honors by guiding Harvard football to a 24-16 win over Columbia on Saturday. The freshman wide receiver caught eight passes for 131 yards and added an 86-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Aside from Shelton-Mosley’s impact on the gridiron, three other Crimson had crucial performances in their teams’ wins.
