A win is a win is a win.
It wasn't the prettiest game, but the Harvard field hockey team (10-5, 3-2 Ivy) gritted out a 3-1 victory over Providence (6-12, 1-4 Big East) yesterday at Jordan Field.
"We played okay," tri-captain Anya Cowan said. " I don't think we played exceptionally well. But we got the job done."
The win came in the wake of a heart-breaking 3-2 overtime loss to Princeton on Saturday that left Harvard reeling.
Yesterday, the Crimson found its scoring touch early when junior attacker Kate Nagle found the back of the cage with 23:38 left in the first period. The goal came on an assist from junior midfielder Liz Sarles.
"Liz had a good look," Nagle said. "She was attacking a free hit into the circle. I redirected her pass one time and it went in."
Nagle now has eight goals on the season, a team high.
The Crimson got another goal from freshman back Katie Scott on a penalty stroke with 4:40 left in the half. It was Scott's first career goal.
