CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's hockey team (2-0-0, 2-0-0 ECAC Hockey) put up a blistering 59 shots en route to a 4-1 victory over Brown (0-3-0, 0-1-0 ECAC Hockey) on Friday afternoon at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. Anne Bloomer led the offense with two goals while nine other players put tallies on the scoresheet.

Beth Larcom made her season debut in net, recording 13 saves.

After a goal was called off early, Harvard put itself on the board at 6:20 when Becca Gilmore poked the puck across the crease where Anne Bloomer was able to chip it in an open net. The Crimson went up 2-0 at 14:37 on a Keely Moy snipe from the slot. Brown cut the lead to one less than three minutes later, beating Larcom far side. 

The second period went scoreless; however, Harvard increased its shot advantage to 39-11, holding the Bears to just two shots in the middle frame. 

Katie Tresca scored her second goal in as many games when she stickhandled around the defense and bounced the puck off the opposite post at 8:37 of the third. Bloomer put a stamp on the victory at 15:09 of the final frame, redirecting the puck off a Brown player from just outside the crease.
