Field Hockey Falls on the Road at No. 12 Boston College

Issy Davies made nine saves Sunday for Harvard (Gil Talbot).

NEWTON, Mass. – The Harvard field hockey team (8-8) dropped its second-to-last game of the season Sunday afternoon, falling on the road to No. 12 Boston College (11-7), 5-0.

The Eagles managed just one goal in the first half, but came out firing in the second half, adding four more scores to its tally. AshLeigh Sebia accounted for the first half tally at 5:11, deflecting in an original scoring attempt by Romee Stiekema.

Early in the second half, Sebia provided an assist on BC's second goal as Frederique Haverhals tipped in her shot. Just over two minutes later, Kelcie Hromisin notched her seventh of the season to put the Eagles ahead, 3-0. The scoring kept coming in the 49th minute when Emily McCoy scored off a penalty corner set up by Lucy Lytle. Brittany Sheenan capped the scoring in the 62nd minute with another tip-in goal for the Eagles.

Harvard's senior goalkeeper, Issy Davies finished the game with nine saves as BC registered 29 total shots.

Harvard closes out the season next Sunday, Oct. 8 with a noon matchup in New York City against Columbia.
