led the Crimson with three goals, while Joey Colton had two goals and three assists to knock off the Engineers.  William Roller and Blake Lee chipped in a goal and an assist, and John Holland-McCowan, Viktor Wrobel and Evan Ramsey all contributed one goal to round out the scoring.

Harvard found the back of the net four times in the opening quarter before the Crimson added four more tallies in the second period to take a five-goal lead into the half.

MIT chipped into the advantage in the third quarter, outscoring Harvard, 3-1, to trim the deficit to three.  Both teams had one goal in the last frame to allow the Crimson to notch its seventh straight win.

On the defensive end, the Crimson finished with six steals behind two from Harrison and Dan Stevens.  Zepfel and Colton added a steal each. Colin Woolway registered nine saves in net.

The Crimson will return to action Saturday, Oct. 19 against Yale at the Ivy League Championships in Philadelphia.
