NEW HAVEN, Conn. - For the second time this season, the Harvard men's water polo team fell behind to No. 12 Brown early and couldn't make up the difference in a loss.

The Bears scored eight goals in the opening frame to take a commanding lead that they would never relinquish en route to a 19-5 win over the third-seeded Crimson at the Ivy Championships. With the loss, Harvard falls to 13-15 on the season.

Jimmy Field paced the Crimson offensive attack with three goals, while Ben Zepfel and John Holland-McCowan both contributed one goal.

Brown extended its lead by outscoring the Crimson in the second (3-1), third (4-1) and fourth (4-3) to improve to 25-2 on the year.

On the defensive end for Harvard, Christopher Miao, Austen Novis, Blake Lee and Field each recorded two steals while Colin Woolway made 10 saves in net.

The Crimson was scheduled to play in the third-place game later in the afternoon; however, the game was cancelled due to weather concerns. Instead, Harvard returns to action at the Northern Championships Nov. 3-4.
