Women’s Hockey Edged by St. Lawrence, 4-0

Senior goalie Brianna Laing totaled 26 saves against the Saints (Zach Williamson).

 – The Harvard women's hockey team dropped a 4-0 decision to St. Lawrence at Appleton Arena on Saturday. Senior goaltender Brianna Laing recorded 26 saves in net for the Crimson.

Harvard trailed early as the hosting Saints got on the scoreboard just 25 seconds into play. The Crimson regrouped and held off the St. Lawrence attack for most of the first period, largely in part to 13 saves from Laing in the frame.

The Crimson defense was put to work as Harvard totaled five penalties in the first period, and the penalty kill unit did its job for the first four, including holding the Saints off the board in a 5-on-3 situation six minutes into the contest.

St. Lawrence finally capitalized on its fifth power-play opportunity, taking a 2-0 lead with 2:50 remaining in the first frame.

Harvard's offense picked up late in the period and continued to earn chances on the offensive end throughout the game. The Crimson matched the Saints in shots on goal, 15-15, after the first period.

The Saints added a goal in both the second and third periods, and Harvard was unable to break through the St. Lawrence defense, ultimately falling 4-0.

Offensively, Harvard was led by senior Sydney Daniels and junior Lexie Laing with four shots apiece. The Crimson also won 26-of-44 face-off opportunities.

Harvard returns to action in Cambridge on Friday, Nov 11 as the Crimson hosts Princeton in a contest slated for 6 p.m.
