Strong Third Period Powers Maryland Past Harvard Women's Water Polo
Junior Lizzie Abbott scored once and had a steal against Maryland Sunday (Harvard Athletic Communications).
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – A rough third period sank the Harvard women's water polo team Sunday at Maryland in another close game for the Crimson, as the Terrapins took a 12-10 Collegiate Water Polo Association decision at the Eppley Recreation Center.
Harvard (15-13, 2-2 CWPA Southern) led by one goal, 6-5, at halftime. The Terrapins came out firing in the second half with five third-period goals while holding Harvard to just two. That would be the difference in the game as both teams posted two tallies each in the closing frame for the 12-10 final score.
Junior co-captain Devan Kennifer had two goals, an assist and two steals to lead the Crimson. Sophomore Elise Molnar had two tallies and two takeaways, and freshman Shayna Price notched two scores and grabbed two steals.
Harvard will face Brown for the third time this season, this time in a neutral site, non-conference game Wednesday in Norton, Mass.
