PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Senior captain Elizabeth Weisman scored in the 99th minute to lead Harvard women's soccer over Brown Tuesday afternoon in nonleague action at Stevenson Field.
The Crimson (10-3-2, 5-0) remains unbeaten over the last 12 games, dating back to Sept. 11.
The 12-match unbeaten streak marks the longest since 1999 (9/18-11/6, 13 games).
Weisman scored off a header from junior Erika Garcia. Crossing a pass into the box from the right side, Weisman redirected the ball into the back of the net to give the Crimson the 1-0 victory.
For the game, Harvard outshot Brown (8-5-1, 3-1-1) by a 16-10 margin, including taking three shots in the extra period, while holding the Bears without a shot. The Crimson was also able to earn nine corner kick opportunities, limiting the Bears to three.
Harvard looks to capture its 11th Ivy League title Saturday with a win against Dartmouth. Game time is set for 1 p.m. at Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium.
