CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's hockey team (5-10-2, 4-7-1 ECAC Hockey) began the afternoon celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the 1999 national championship team, before being setback 6-0 by No. 7/7 Cornell (11-2-5, 9-2-1 ECAC Hockey) this afternoon at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. Highlights included a ceremonial puck drop by Alison Kuusisto, the goaltender in the 1999 national title game, and senior captain Kate Hallett's 100th career game.
The Big Red came out blazing, taking a 3-0 lead through the first period and never looking back. Cornell's scores included a short-handed tally as well as a power-play goal in the middle frame. Dutton held the Big Red scoreless through the third, but the damage was done as the No. 7/7 Cornell squad took its ninth ECAC Hockey win of the season.
- Cornell extends its unbeaten streak to seven against the Crimson.
- Harvard went 0-1 on the power-play while Cornell went 1-4.
Harvard will test its road skills next weekend in North Country. The Crimson is set to face Clarkson on Friday at 6 p.m. and will turnaround to take on St. Lawrence on Saturday at 3 p.m.
