With 15 minutes left on the clock, the Harvard football team found itself in unfamiliar territory. Trailing in the second half for the first time since week two, the Crimson needed to mount a fourth quarter comeback to defeat Penn.
Kicking off a five-game road stint, the Crimson couldn’t finish off a win in a pair of overtime contests, settling for a tie on Friday against Clarkson and dropping a 5-4 decision against St. Lawrence the following evening.
Heading into its 2013-2014 season, the Harvard women’s ice hockey team was already facing an uphill battle. The Crimson had graduated its leading scorer, Jillian Dempsey ’13, and had lost three other key players along with long-tenured coach, Katey Stone, to the Olympic roster.
The No. 11 Crimson took on No. 4 American International College in a Saturday afternoon contest at Cumnock Field, and the powerful Yellow Jackets offense proved too much for the injury-hampered Crimson squad in the 56-19 loss.
