CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Taking the ice for the first time this season, Harvard women's hockey fell to McGill in an exhibition contest, 3-0, on Friday night at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
Seniors Brianna Laing and Molly Tissenbaum combined to make 30 stops in goal, but the Crimson offense could not get on the board despite firing 25 shots on goal. Junior Haley Mullins recorded a game-high six shots, while freshman Val Turgeon and senior Sydney Daniels tallied four apiece.
After a scoreless first period, the Martlets scored the game's first goal at 3:53 in the second period, coming when Jade Downie pushed a rebound across the line. Lea Dumais and Cassidy Bell assisted on the play.
Harvard pushed 11 shots on frame in the third period, including four from Mullins, but the Martlets went up 3-0 late in the third after a power play goal from Melodie Daoust and an empty netter from Olivia Ramos.
Harvard women's hockey makes its regular season debut at Dartmouth on Sunday at 3 p.m. The puck drop will be broadcast on the Ivy League Digital Network.
