“I was incredibly impressed with the way we bounced back,” said Crimson head coach Chris Hamblin. “The team was very resilient.”
Harvard entered Tuesday night’s matchup against Boston University with the chance to make it one full month since last conceding a goal. Even against a potent Terriers attack that had scored in five consecutive contests, the Crimson defense held strong for nearly 89 minutes.
With an incessantly aggressive defense, yet another shutout performance by its goalkeeper, and a first-half game-winner from freshman defender Jillian Wachira, the Crimson demonstrated how effective its hunger to win can be in a 1-0 victory over Yale on Saturday night.
Harvard-Yale is always more than just a normal game. Each student-athlete will be eager to write the next chapter in this fabled rivalry, and historically speaking, this game should be exhilarating to watch.
