Women’s Soccer Turns It On In Second Half, Routs Cornell to Set Up Brown Showdown

Harvard went into the halftime break in Ithaca tied 0-0 Saturday afternoon, having been neutralized by Cornell’s first-half press. But any hope of a massive Big Red upset was quickly stamped out in the second stanza, as two goals from junior center forward Angela Caloia keyed the Crimson’s 4-0 win after the sluggish first-half performance.

Bebar Stars as Women’s Soccer Earns Comprehensive 3-0 Win over Penn

Hannah Bebar calmly received the ball with her back to goal and took a touch before turning and firing into the top right corner to put Harvard up 3-0. By the time the ball rippled the net for the third time at Jordan Field, it had become clear that the Crimson will present a different type of challenge for Ivy League defenses this season. In their last four meetings, No.15/23 Harvard (7-0-1, 1-0-0 Ivy League) and Penn (5-2-2, 0-1-0 Ivy) had scored three combined goals. The Crimson matched that total on a sunny Saturday afternoon, cruising past the Quakers to open the conference season with a resounding win.
