Field Hockey Falls at No. 13 Harvard, 7-0

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Brown field hockey team was defeated by 13th-ranked Harvard, 7-0, at Berylson Field on Friday night. The Crimson used four first-half goals to gain momentum early en route to their win.  

Kathleen Young gave the Crimson a 2-0 lead with a pair of scores at 6:22 and 14:18 to open the game's action. Hannah Wellington increased Harvard's lead to three at 16:15. The Crimson were awarded a penalty stroke at 27:37 but junior Katie Hammaker (Ephrata, Pa.) made an impressive diving save to stop the threat. Harvard closed out the opening frame with four consecutive penalty corners, converting on the final one to take a 4-0 advantage into the break. Hammaker made three straight saves in the corner sequence and finished the half with eight stops.

Brown (1-9, 0-3 Ivy League) shut down Harvard's offensive efforts to open the second, but the Crimson (9-2, 3-0 Ivy League) scored two quick tallies at 52:38 and 53:47 to claim a 6-0 lead.  Harvard recorded its final score at 68:46. The Bears were awarded a penalty corner with time expired where senior Ashley Waldron (East Walpole, Mass.) fired a shot on goal but the Crimson's Callie Rennyson came up with the stop.  

Hammaker added five saves in the second while sophomore Allee Ayles (Westwood, Mass.) registered three saves to close out the second in the cage.

Brown will next return home to Goldberger Family Field to host No. 24 American on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 1:00 p.m.
