With 20 seconds left in the second period and the score tied at zero, it looked as if the Harvard-Penn women’s soccer matchup was slated for overtime.
After drawing a hotly contested match last Monday with local rival Boston University, the Crimson looks to extend its unbeaten streak for the season against the Flyers in its second home match of the year and then on the road against Colgate (4-2-1).
Four years into a career that has seen her walk away with two Ivy League titles as part of what is quickly becoming a women’s soccer dynasty, senior Taryn Kurcz has had quite a few memorably moments. But all things considered, Monday night’s game, under the lights of the “Fall Fiesta,” might have been Kurcz’s best yet at Harvard.
Despite last year’s Ivy League title for the men’s squad and the NCAA individual foil title for sophomore Alexandra Kiefer, another successful year was never a certainty for the nationally-contending Crimson fencing team. But with a second-place finish by the men’s squad in the Ivy League Championship, a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championships, and individual silver medal for outgoing co-captain Valentin Staller in the saber, Harvard was nonetheless able to remain in the upper echelons of Ivy and national fencing.
