WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Harvard men's lacrosse team picked up its second straight win with a 15-7 victory at Georgetown Saturday afternoon.

Harvard exploded in the second quarter, outscoring Georgetown 7-0 to open a 10-2 halftime lead and all but put the game out of reach.

Ardrey, Peter Schwartz and Will Walker each recorded a hat trick with Devin Dwyer notching five assists in his first action of the year.
