Providence, RI - The women's ice hockey team (3-4-1, 2-1-1) battled Harvard (3-2-2, 2-2-2) for 65:00 minutes as the two squads skated to a 1-1 tie this afternoon at Meehan Auditorium. After two full periods of scoreless play, the Bears and Crimson opened it up in an action packed third, scoring two goals a 1:32 apart from each other.
In a fast moving first period both the Bear and Crimson offense looked to go ahead early, as the two each notched 11 shots in the first frame. Senior Keaton Zucker (Gilford, NH) led the offensive charge, notching four shots including a quick wrist shot that beat Harvard's goalie but hit a pipe keeping the score at 0-0 after one.
After a defensive struggle in the second, only having seven shots total, both teams opened it up in third. The Bears struck first, netting the first goal of the game 3:25 into the period when freshman Kim McManus (Dedham, MA) put in a rebound shot past the Crimson's goalie for the 1-0 lead. Sophomore Kathryn Moos (Wayzata, MN) picked up a loose puck and snapped a quick shot at the Harvard net where the Crimson's goaltender made the stop, but could not control the rebound as it bounced out to senior Margaret Ramsay (Toronto, ONT). Ramsay shot puck back at Boe, who made a pad save right to McManus as she fired it home for the lead. Crimson tied the score at the 15:03 mark, getting the equalizer the same way Brown recorded their goal.
Brown looked to have gone ahead with a little under ten minutes remaining in the game when Zucker found a loose puck in front of the net and put it past Boe lighting the lamp, but the head referee whistled it a no goal saying Zucker skated into the crease before hitting the puck.
In the over time period, both offenses could not get a good look at the net as each squad's defense buckled down in the final five minutes. Sophomore goalie O'Hara Shipe (Anchorage, AK) anchored the defense as she saved 33 in this afternoon's match up.
The Bears will return to action Friday, November 25, as they will host Niagara in non-conference play at 4:00 PM.
