Star Sophomore Wide Receiver Cooper Barkate and His Teammates Look to Claim Sole Ivy Title in 139th Matchup of The Game
The Harvard football team has had a record-breaking 150th season. 8-1 in overall play and with over 900 victories in program history, the Crimson heads into the historic Harvard-Yale weekend seeking the outright Ivy League Championship. A notable player amidst this historic season has been none other than sophomore wide receiver Cooper Barkate.
With a dwindling two seconds remaining in the tied game on Saturday, Lara Beekhuis slammed a shot past the Cornell goaltender, securing a dramatic victory for the Harvard Crimson. Thanks to Beekhuis and her buzzer-beater goal against the Big Red, the Harvard field hockey team went undefeated in Ivy League play and had a successful conclusion to their regular season.
