In the Harvard men’s lacrosse team’s final game of the season against rival Yale on Saturday, the Crimson stormed out to a second-quarter lead and withstood a late comeback attempt to finish off its season on a high note and without a losing record.
In its last nonconference matchup of the season, the men's lacrosse team was able to narrowly get past the Terriers to pick up a 9-8 win.
The Harvard men’s lacrosse team is in a precarious position. Having started with immensely high preseason expectations, and rising as high as 10th in the national polls, the team has now lost four straight games and is in danger of not making the Ivy League tournament, its only legitimate shot at a postseason berth.
By the end of the first quarter of the No. 15/16 Harvard mens lacrosse team’s game against No. 2/2 UNC in Chapel Hill on Tuesday night, the Tar Heels had already run away to a 5-0 lead.
With snow piled high on the winter streets of Cambridge, the No. 13/10 Harvard men’s lacrosse team traveled south to Durham, N.C., but did not find a warm reception waiting for them from No. 6/6 Duke. Strong shooting helped propel the defending national champions stretch a two-goal halftime lead into seven-goal margin of victory, 21-14.
