Harvard Wants To Mow Down Fields

By Timothy M. Mcdonald, Crimson Staff Writer

Futility, thy name is Fields. Well, not exactly, but many of Harvard’s struggles against Boston University the last two seasons have stemmed from an inability to put pucks past the Terrier’s star goaltender.

The Crimson carries a four-game losing streak into tonight’s contest, and over the course of those four games, the teams’ two netminders have enjoyed vastly different results, despite the comparable nature of their regular season numbers.

Fields has thrived versus the Crimson, winning all four contests and looking exceptional while doing so. He stands 4-0 lifetime against Harvard, including victories in the 2003 Beanpot and the 2003 NCAA Tournament. Grumet-Morris stands 0-4 against his Commonwealth Ave. counterpart, and has suffered his worst loss ever in a Harvard jersey—an 8-0 drubbing in November of his freshman year—opposite Fields.

One wouldn’t know it from the four head-to-head matchups detailed below, but Grumet-Morris had at least a comparable, if not better, season than Fields last year. Fields had more wins, but also more losses, while Grumet-Morris had a slightly better goals against average and a higher save percentage.

Against the Crimson, though, Fields has outshined Grumet-Morris.

“[Fields] is obviously our go-to-guy,” BU coach Jack Parker said. “He’s the guy to be the stalwart back there for us.”
