With fierce crossfield winds and soggy turf, there was no place for much finesse yesterday at Ohiri Field. That was fine with the No. 8 Harvard men’s soccer team (8-1, 1-0 Ivy) as it grinded to a 2-0 victory over Patriot League opponent Holy Cross (3-7, 1-1 Patriot).
“It was good to get that result,” Crimson coach Jamie Clark said. “The wind played a big factor. It wasn’t the prettiest game we’ve had, but we got two scores and didn’t give up any chances.”
The Northeastern Huskies women’s field hockey team did not play the part of a friendly cross-town neighbor to Harvard last night, sending the Crimson home in a lopsided shutout.
Northeastern freshman Crystal Poland and the Huskies (6-4) simply overwhelmed the Harvard Women’s field hockey team in the first half, scoring early and often to capture a 6-0 win over the Crimson (3-4, 0-2 Ivy).
