W. Hockey Beats B.C., Falls To Dartmouth Over Weekend

Sometimes in life, similar efforts produce vastly different results.

In its games against both Boston College and Dartmouth this past weekend, the Harvard women's hockey team unleashed a barrage on the opposition's goaltenders, outshooting its foes by the most lopsided of margins.

But while Harvard's 47 shots against B.C. translated to a 9-1 win at the Heights on Saturday, Harvard's 40 shots against Dartmouth were not enough to secure a victory, as the Big Green downed the Crimson yesterday, 5-3, in Hanover, N.H.


The loss is the second defeat at the hands of Dartmouth for Harvard (14-4-3, 12-4-3 ECAC) this season.

"Obviously it was a really important game for us, so we were pretty disappointed," said junior winger Tammy Shewchuk. "With all the obstacles we've been facing lately, these were two points we definitely wanted."

Dartmouth 5, Harvard 3

The Crimson traveled to Hanover yesterday looking to steal a win over the Big Green (16-8-0, 15-5-0) on its own home ice, just as Dartmouth had done to Harvard back on Nov. 5. Then, it swiped a 5-4 overtime victory on the same night that the Crimson raised last year's NCAA Championship to the rafters of Bright Hockey Center.
