Box Score

WORCESTER, Mass. - The field hockey team battled hard but was shut out at No. 15 Harvard, 4-0, Sunday afternoon.

The Holy Cross defense withstood tremendous pressure from a talented Harvard offense. The Crimson took 26 shots in the first half, but only came away with two goals. Then in the second half, they took 18 shots and again only claimed two goals.

Junior goalkeeper Marcia LaPlante had a staggering 28 saves on the day as she continued her strong season. She had 18 saves in the season opener and 16 last time out against Northeastern.

Harvard’s Bente van Vlijmen scored three of the Crimson’s four goals, with Maddie Earle picking up the other.

The Crusaders will have one more road game this Friday at Fairfield at 4:30 p.m. before they finally get to play at home next Sunday against Columbia.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

  • Holy Cross registered a total of 29 saves with 28 being made by LaPlante and sophomore Kate O'Donnell making a defensive save.
  • Harvard took 11 corners to the Crusaders’ zero.
