Harvard Fails to Pull Off Another Ivy Upset, Loses to Penn 15-9

Despite coming back from a three goal deficit to end the first half tied 5-5, a game that appeared to at first parallel the squad’s three-goal-down comeback against No. 4 Cornell, the Crimson squad was unable to pull off a second consecutive underdog victory, falling to the No. 18 Penn Quakers 15-9. Despite Harvard’s ability to even the score, the Quakers created a definitive four-goal lead in the third quarter that ultimately set the tone for the rest of play. The next two games against RV/No. 20 Princeton and RV/No. 19 Yale will be critical in determining Harvard’s fate in securing a place in the Ivy and NCAA Tournaments.
