Booters Cook Curry, 5-0 As Batter Tallies Twice

Women

By Stephen A. Herzenberg

A team can only do so much in the interest of sportsmanship. After it has agreed to play with ten players because the opposition only has ten, to start its second team when asked politely, and to play its goalie at striker and its center-half in the goal to avoid running up the score, what greater lengths can it go to? C'mon now, asking it to turn around and take aim at its won net is going a little far, isn't it?

Despite all these precautionary steps, the Women's Varsity soccer squad yesterday still thrashed its opponent, hapless Curry, 5-0, taking 39 shots while Curry managed only two. Even Amy Vanderbilt couldn't chastise it for its coarse manners.

Early Score

Playing second string right wing, freshman Jennifer White opened the scoring for Harvard. Only six minutes into the contest, she corralleda ball after it rebounded off the Curry goalie and quickly made the score 1-0.

Freshman Sally Kingsberg, playing despite a broken nose, tallied the next goal 28 minutes later, taking a pass on the right wing from freshman teammate Lisa Glen, dribbling to the center of the field and placing it in the left corner of the goal.

Early in the second half, senior star Suki Magraw scored the most beautiful goal of the contest. Far out on the right wing, Magraw booted the ball 35 yards in the air, sending it into the net on the left side of the goal as the helpness keeper looked on.

Wrapping it Up

Sophomore Kathy Batter wrapped up the scoring for the Crimson, finding the net twice in the last 25 minutes of the match. Usually a fixture at center-half, Batter had already played goal and made one save before she switched to striker at the end of the battle and scored twice after scrambles in front of the net.

After completely outplaying their less experienced opponents yesterday, the Crimson women must prepare themselves for tougher games against Stonehill on Friday and arch-rival Yale in two weeks. Judging from recent form, they should fare extremely well. If they can remember how to play their old positions, that is.
