Men's Lacrosse

After trading goals with Brown for three periods, the Harvard men's lacrosse team scored three unanswered goals in the final frame to win 7-4 at Jordan Field last night.

It was the first Ivy win for a Harvard (6-3, 1-2 Ivy) team that has gotten scoring from a number of sources throughout the season.

For the Bears (3-5, 1-2), it was their fifth loss in six games and their second league loss in five days. No. 1 Princeton trounced Brown in New Jersey last Saturday, 15-2.


Last night, the Crimson scattered its seven goals between six players, proving that its depth around the cage may be its best asset going into a tough game on the road against the top-ranked Tigers (7-1, 3-0) this weekend.

Freshman midfielder Jeff Gotschall got the eventual game-winner at 1:46 of the fourth period, beating Beret Dickson for the Crimson's fifth goal, the first in a string of three in the period.

Dickson made nine saves on the day.

The Crimson iced the game with subsequent goals from sophomore attackman Matt Primm at 5:04 and senior attackman Dana Sprong at 11:53.

Sophomore Jay Wich opened the scoring with an unassisted tally only 47 seconds into the game. The Bears answered with unassisted goals from Chas Gessner at 8:10 of the opening frame and Brian Miller at 5:12 of the next period.
