Brown Falls to Harvard, 4-2 in Women's Ice Hockey Action

Nov. 24, 2001

Coming off last weekend's two game non-conference battle with the University of Minnesota and University of Minnesota-Duluth, the Brown women's ice hockey team returned to the ice for their fourth ECAC and third Ivy League contest of the season.

Brown took a first period lead when Harvard failed to clear the puck out of the zone and Krissy McManus (Dedham, MA) got off a quick shot which found the back of the net. Less than four minutes later, the Crimson tied the game when the Bears tried to tie up Harvard's Nicole Corriero (Thornhill, ONT) and she was able to slip the puck to Lauren McAuliffe (North Reading, MA) who beat Brown goalie Pam Dreyer (Eagle River, AK) high on the stick side for her first goal of the year. The Bears were able to take the lead again late in the first period as Meredith Ostrander (Prescott, ONT) converted a rebound on a shot by Kelly Sheridan (Short Hills, NJ) with 1:24 left in the opening stanza.

Harvard netted the equalizer just 3:53 into the second period as Tracy Catlin (Cambridge, MA) made the most of an individual effort, putting a high wrist shot in the back of the net. The game-winner came later in the period as nice passing in the Brown zone set up Pamela Van Reesema (Greenwich, CT) who scored on a slap shot from the left point.

The Crimson carried the one goal lead into the final period despite being outshot by the Bears 23-10 through the first two periods. Pam Dreyer finished with 14 saves on the night, while Harvard goalie Jessica Ruddock (Guelph, ONT) recorded 27 saves. Harvard was able to get an insurance goal as Kalen Ingram (Peterborough, ONT) fed the puck across the goal and it hit off of Corriero and into the net at the 8:37 mark of the final period.
