Botterill, W. Hockey Rallies Late to Beat Friars, Huskies

Facing two of the best defensive teams in the nation, the Harvard women's hockey team broke through late and often, thanks largely to one of its captains.

The No.5 Crimson defeated No. 8 Northeastern 6-3 on Friday night

and rolled over No.10 Providence 7-4 on Saturday night at Bright Hockey



Junior co-captain Jennifer Botterill recorded a hat trick in each of the games this weekend to spearhead a Harvard attack that used late rallies to overwhelm its opponents.

Against Northeastern (11-6-0, 8-3-0 ECAC) and its stellar goalie

Erika Silva--who made 40 saves in shutting out No.1 Dartmouth two weeks ago--the Crimson (11-6-0, 11-2-0) scored five goals in the third period to blow the game open.

The Huskies were ranked No. 5 in the country at the time.
