Overtime Score Pushes Harvard Past Clarkson

By Catherine E. Coppinger, Crimson Staff Writer

Less than 24 hours after the Harvard women’s hockey team (2-0, 2-0 ECAC) won its first conference battle at St. Lawrence, sophomore forward Marissa Gedman broke the Crimson out of a 1-1 stalemate with ECAC rival Clarkson (4-2-4, 0-1-1) less than two minutes into overtime. Gedman’s goal—assisted by freshman defender Michelle Picard—sealed a 2-1 victory for Harvard.

Although the Crimson outshot the Golden Knights, 11-7, in the first period, neither team could convert its chances in the opening frame. In the second, Harvard got on the board first, as junior defender Josephine Pucci tallied a goal—her first of the young season—at 5:42 on a power play. But Clarkson tied it up, earning a power play goal of its own with less than a minute to play in the second period.

After a scoreless third period forced the game into overtime, the Crimson was able to come away with a win after an extra 1:24, exiting the first weekend of regular season play undefeated.
