CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The No. 6 Harvard men’s squash team tested No. 1 Trinity early and often, but the Bantams were able to come away with a 6-3 win over the Crimson. Trinity extends its win streak to 239 matches, while the Crimson fell to 7-4 this season.

Using a three-court system, Harvard picked up an early point in the No. 9 match. William Ahmed defeated Daniel Echavarria, 3-1, to earn the Crimson’s first point.

Down 2-1, Thomas Mullaney gave Harvard the equalizer, winning the No. 7 match. Mullaney outlasted Juan Flores in five sets, 9-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-3, 11-8.

Trinity was able to pull away earning the necessary five victories, but not before Gary Power downed previously unbeaten Parth Sharma. Sharma entered the match with a 12-0 record this season, but Harvard’s Power captured a 3-1 decision to earn Harvard’s third victory of the match.

The Crimson will conclude the regular season Saturday when Ivy League rival Yale visits Cambridge. The match is scheduled for a 4 p.m. start.
