CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Returning home for the first of three-straight Ivy games, Harvard women's soccer saw its seven-game win streak come to a close against Brown, 4-2. The Crimson drops to 10-3 this season (3-1 Ivy), while Brown improves to 10-1-1 (4-0 Ivy).

First-year Angela Caloia and junior Cammie Dopke scored for the Crimson, while first-year Gabby DelPico added a pair of assists. Senior Kat Hess tied a career-high with eight saves between the posts

Brown struck first in the fifth minute, but the Crimson responded with Caloia's fifth score of the season in the 20th. DelPico lofted in a free kick from the left side, with Caloia taking a touch and volleying home a goal past a diving goalkeeper. The Bears added a second goal to close the half, and took a 4-1 lead after two scores in the 58th minute.

Harvard tallied 11 shots in the second half, with Dopke netting her first-career goal with 90 seconds remaining on the clock. The defender headed a corner kick from DelPico into the top-right corner.
