Crimson, 5-1 in Ivy League, to Seek Win Over Brown Hockey Team Tonight

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard's hockey team goes after another Ivy League victory tonight as it travels to meet Brown in the Bears' brand-new Meechan hockey rink.

"Cooney" Weiland's Crimson sextet, now 5 and 1 in the League, needs three victories in its last four games to clinch its second straight Ivy title, its seventh in the last nine years. A sweep of its remaining contests would give the team a total of 20 wins overall--a mark second only to the total of 21 gained by the 1956-57 team.

Brown could prove a surprise for the Crimson skaters, who were not quite up to snuff in their last appearance. The Crimson has had trouble on the road against Ivy opponents this year; its only conference loss was at Cornell, 2 to 1, and it had a close call at Princeton last week, 2 to 1,

The Bears, coached by Jim Fullerton, have improved steadily since inauguration of their new rink in December; but until this year's freshmen mature, Brown remains less than a first-rate Ivy power. Since the middle of the season, Fullerton has lost his leading scorers--Fred Avis, who was injured a month ago, and Bruce McIntyre, who became ill last week.

After a fair start, Brown lost its last four straight Ivy games and is now in fourth place (3-5).

Coach Nat Harris' Crimson freshmen seek to improve their 5-6-2 record this afternoon with a game at Brown. The Bear Cubs, who trounced the Yardlings 11 to 1 two weeks ago, are a fast, high scoring outfit and one of the most highly regarded freshman clubs in the Northeast.
