LEWISBURG, Pa. – Four different players found the back of the net multiple times for the Harvard women's water polo team in a 16-13, Collegiate Water Polo Association win over Bucknell Saturday. The victory followed an 11-5 defeat at the hands of Princeton earlier in the day.

Sophomore Aisha Price (5) and juniors Devan Kennifer (3), Shannon Purcell (2) and Monica Zdrojewski (3) all tallied mulitple scores for the Crimson (14-10, 2-1 CWPA) as part of a seven-player scoring barrage against Bucknell. Price and Kennifer also had four steals each, while Zdrojewski grabbed two takeaways. Purcell and Zdrojewski also had two assists apiece in the 16-13 win.

Against Princeton in the first game of the day, the Crimson allowed six unanswered goals in the first half to trail, 6-0, at halftime. Those goals would prove to be the difference, as Harvard matched the Tigers score for score in the second period, falling 11-5. Sophomore Elise Molnar had two goals, two helpers and a steal in the game to lead Harvard.

The Crimson will face No. 6 Michigan in a neutral-site CWPA game Sunday morning at Bucknell's Kinney Natatorium.
