Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Harvard women’s ice hockey played three games, but was unable to come out of the weekend with any points. In its first game, the Crimson took a trip up to Durham, N.H., where it faced the New Hampshire Wildcats (7-7-1). With Harvard unable to find the back of the net, the Wildcats pulled away with a 3-0 win, having scored a goal in each period. The Wildcats’ Brooke Hammer had an impressive performance, putting up three points with two goals and an assist.
Before the season, Harvard men’s ice hockey head coach Ted Donato said that it would take time for the Crimson to establish an identity, especially on offense, with so many of its players experiencing college hockey for the first time. Three games into the season, the team is still looking for that identity, as well as its first victory, after a shootout loss to the Princeton Tigers and a blowout loss to the Quinnipiac Bobcats, the defending national champions.
