"We took a lot of shots that made their goalie look good," junior Ellen Frump said.
The Panthers' goalie, who came into the contest with a 4.15 goals-against-average, did have to make some startling saves--including several point-blank stops on Crimson two-on-one breaks.
The Panthers defense was also aided by some non-calls by the referees infront of their net as they routinely pulled down Crimson attackers with out penalty.
The Crimson's dominating performance, which comes on the tail of a lack-luster 2-4 loss to Cornell Sunday, suggests that the effects of the two week exam-period layoff may be behind it.
Starting with this weekend's games against Colby and Bowdoin, Harvard will play six games in ten days--including two contests in the 17th annual women's Beanpot tour nament.
The Crimson's play over this stretch will spell the difference between success and disappointment in Stone's first season as coach.
"We have to show up every day to play hard," Stone said. "If we don't hustle all the time, then we're in trouble." Harvard, 1-0 at Bright, Arena Middlebury 0 0 0 - 0 Harvard 0 1 0 - 1
