Etzel made a career-high 16 saves (Gil Talbot).
NEW YORK – Putting forth one of the top performances by a goalkeeper in the country this season, junior Danielle Etzel made 16 saves and helped lead the Crimson to a 0-0 tie with Columbia in double overtime on Saturday night at Rocco B. Commisso Field. Harvard women's soccer finishes the season at 8-8-1 overall, including a 2-4-1 mark in Ivy play, securing its 11th-consecutive season with a record at .500 or better.
Etzel's 16 saves are the fifth-most by a goalkeeper in the country this season, and the third-most in a shutout effort. The 16 saves top her career-best 13, which was set a week ago against Dartmouth. Offensively, freshman Murphy Agnew, junior Leah Mohammadi and senior Dani Stollar tallied a team-high two shots apiece.
Columbia (9-5-2, 5-1-1 Ivy) forced Etzel into five saves in the first half and six in the second, and the keeper played a crucial role in the extra periods, making five additional stops.
- Etzel made a career-high 16 saves, which is the fifth-most in a single game in the country this season and the third-most in a shutout effort. The 16 saves are the most in the Ivy League this season in both categories.
