Cavanagh, Durno Lead Freshmen To Overtime Upset Over Yale Six

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Joey Cavanagh stunned a previously undefeated Yale freshman hockey team with an unassisted goal in a sudden-death playoff, to give Harvard a 5-4 thriller Saturday night.

Before the game with the Yardlings, Yale boasted an impressive 18-0 record. Harvard's record is now 16-4.

Coach Gene Kinasewich said it was the best team effort of the year. "The strong play of the second and third lines made the difference," he said.

The key to the game was the performance in the sudden-death period of the Yardling's captain and goalie, Bruce Durno and the speedy Cavanagh.

Durno all but ate the puck and held the Bullpups scoreless until Cavanagh broke away eight minutes into the overtime.

Coming from behind the net, Cavanagh slapped the puck off the goalie's stick into the net.

Durno made 31 saves, while Cole made 35.

Steve Barker scored first for the Crimson at 3:42 of the first period. With an assist from Dick Bird. Yale responded with two quick goals from Bob Kelly. At 18:37 Dan DeMichele scored from close-in, tying the score. Ford Fraker and Cavanagh made the assists.

Frustration

Only 1:30 into the second period, Yale's Terry DeMeza scored on a pass from Brian Bird. Then Cole, the Yale goalie, held up the game for about ten minutes while officials examined his injured knee. He re-entered the game immediately afterward.

Harvard's Terry Driscoll then scored by Cole at 3:09, with help from Steve Owen and Cavanagh. The rest of the period was a study in frustration, neither team taking advantage of numerous penalties.

In the final period, DeMeza of Yale scored at 5:22, but Harvard quickly took the offensive, outshooting the Bullpups 14-7. Cavanagh pushed in the tieing goal at 17:19, throwing the game into a ten minute sudden-death overtime.
