Back-to-back wins over Yale advanced Harvard to the ECAC semifinals against Cornell this coming Saturday.
Senior Jasmine Evans, shown here in previous action, sparked the Crimson's win over Cornell on Saturday evening with her career-best 21 points.
Junior Samantha Reber made the win possible with a power-play strike from the slot five minutes into the third, putting Harvard up, 3-2. Previously, St. Lawrence had scored two quick goals to turn a 2-0 deficit into a tie game.
On Saturday, the Harvard women’s hockey team finally broke through. The No. 5/6 Crimson beat No. 3 Cornell in Ithaca for the first time since the 2008-09 season.
The Crimson watched its five-point advantage over Connecticut disappear during the final 20 minutes in Storrs, Conn., Wednesday.
Though it did not come how the No. 4/5 Harvard women’s hockey team imagined, the Crimson extended its unbeaten streak to 10 games with a 3-2 win over Northeastern.
The USA women’s hockey team, led by Harvard coach Katey Stone, announced Wednesday that three current and one former Crimson skaters will be joining Stone in Sochi, Russia.
The Crimson's Thanksgiving feast continued Sunday as five different skaters scored to extend the team's unbeaten streak.
Harvard won its seventh straight over Yale, 34-7. With Princeton losing to Dartmouth later Saturday, the Crimson earned a share of the Ivy title.
Since the formation of the Ivy League 59 years ago, the Ancient Eight have consistently struggled to balance athletic success and its impact on academics. These critics raise a question: Has Harvard overstepped the line?
Harvard football coach Tim Murphy thought his Crimson had put Penn away.
The Tigers have quickly gone from pretender (1-9 in 2011), to contender (3rd in the Ivy League in 2012), to undisputed king. It shouldn’t be that easy.
None of the individual stats are impressive. No Harvard football player had 60 receiving yards, 80 rushing yards, or 200 passing yards Saturday at Columbia. Junior quarterback Conner Hempel completed less than 60 percent of his passes, went a second straight week without a touchdown pass, and threw his fifth interception of the year. But then you look at the score.
Given that, it’s hard for me to even call Saturday’s contest a game. It’s even harder for me to get excited about covering it.
