NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 6 Harvard men's squash team saw its season come to a close in the Potter Cup final consolation match, falling 7-2, to No. 5 Penn Sunday morning at the Brady Squash Center.

Harvard (6-7, 5-2) had topped then-ranked No. 1 Penn (11-6, 3-4 Ivy League) earlier this season on Jan. 9, 6-3, but the Quakers had the final say in the rematch, handing Harvard its first loss in the series since 1979 and snaps the Crimson's 36-match win streak against the Quakers. 

David Ryan and Bryan Koh accounted for the lone victories of the match for the Crimson. Ryan earned his sixth win of the season at the No. 1 position, while Koh picked up his ninth at the No. 3 spot.

Select members of the Crimson will return to the courts next weekend to compete in the CSA Individual Nationals March 4-6 in Stamford, Connecticut.
