CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Harvard goalkeeper Lauren Mann didn't allow a goal and made five saves to lead the Harvard Crimson to a 2-0 victory over the Holy Cross women's soccer team Tuesday night in Cambridge, Mass. With the loss, the Crusaders fall to 5-4-1 on the season, while the Crimson improve to 3-5-1.
Harvard scored its first goal of the game at the 25:25 mark in the first half when Caroline Kutler took a cross from Katherine Sheeleigh and Melanie Baskind in the right side of the box and scored in the top right corner of the goal. The Crimson scored again at the 32:33 mark to take the 2-0 lead when Christina Hagner scored an unassisted goal from 15 yards out.
The two goals in the first half was all Harvard needed as even play rendered the second half scoreless and ended the game in favor of the Crimson, 2-0.
Holy Cross junior goalkeeper Mary Ferketic (West Hartford, Conn.) made her sixth start of the season, allowing two Harvard goals on 15 shots and recording five saves. Mann shut out the Crusaders, making five saves on 13 Holy Cross shots.
