“We had momentum going in the right direction,” Haber said. “It was a really good showing out of the gate, and it kind of just fell off a bit. I guess it was a defensive lapse for the most part after that. Through the middle of the game, we let them get a couple too many in.”
The Tar Heels rallied with four-straight unanswered tries to take a 29-10 lead in the second frame, but the Crimson responded, as Lin added a score to close the deficit.
“We definitely picked it up in the second half, but it was too late to recover the score,” Haber said.
Despite a late push, Harvard ultimately failed to score any more tries, and the final score stood at 29-15, knocking the Crimson out of the championship bracket.
