PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The No. 3 Harvard men's squash team made quick work of Ivy League rival and No. 13 Penn, 9-0, Saturday afternoon at the Ringe Squash Courts.

The Crimson (8-0, 2-0) won all nine matches by 3-0 margins to record its seventh sweep of the season in preparation for Sunday's showdown with No. 1 Princeton. It is also the first time this season that Harvard has not allowed an opponent to win a single game. 

Freshman Matt Roberts picked up his team-leading fifth win of the season at No. 9, besting Daniel Judd, 15-13, 11-1, 11-6, in the first rotation, while Tommy Mullaney, Brandon McLaughlin and Jason Michas all matched him with their fifth wins, as well.  

After the opening series of matches, Harvard cruised the rest of the way, allowing nine or more points just three times in the final six matches.

No. 1 Ali Farag returned to his dominant form and allowed just nine points to Danny Greenberg in an 11-1, 11-1, 11-7 win in the final match of the afternoon, while Nigel Koh surrendered just 14 at No. 5 in a win over Liam Quinn, 11-4, 11-4, 11-6.

Harvard will take on the top-ranked Tigers at 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon in New Jersey.
