CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – In the first of two outings at home this weekend, Harvard women's hockey could not overcome a slow start, falling to Colgate, 4-0, on Friday night at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
Harvard was outshot by a 28-25 margin, and was led by a game-high five shots from senior Sydney Daniels. Freshman Beth Larcom and senior Molly Tissenbaum split time in goal, making 13 and 11 saves, respectively.
Colgate struck first at 2:12 in the first period off the stick of Megan Sullivan. The Raiders doubled their advantage later in the period, when Amanda Hoppner slammed home a rebound at 14:48.
The Raiders scored a third tally at the beginning of the third period, with Kaila Pinkney connecting from the point at 2:32 in the frame.
Harvard outshot the Raiders, 15-2, in the final period, but was unable to put a goal on the board. The Crimson penalty kill stood strong on the evening, going a perfect 4-for-4.
The Crimson will look to rebound on Saturday, Jan. 28 against Cornell for 'White Out Bright-Landry.' Puck drop is set for 3 p.m. live on NESN and the Ivy League Digital Network.
