Harvard continues its home schedule tomorrow versus Mercyhurst (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's water polo battled St. Francis (N.Y.) but fell, 13-5, before Evan Ramsey scored five goals to lead the Crimson past Connecticut College, 16-7, during Collegiate Water Polo Association play at Blodgett Pool Saturday.
Harvard played well against St. Francis (N.Y), who leads the CWPA Northern Division, but missed promising scoring opportunities in the loss. Max Eliot added to his team lead in goals with a hat trick and Jimmy Field anchored the Crimson defense with eight saves. Luka Babic added two assists.
The Crimson jumped to a 5-2 lead after one quarter and a 9-4 advantage at halftime to breeze past Connecticut College. Eight Crimson players scored in the nightcap, including four in double figures. Ramsey, who entered the game with six goals on the year, led the charge with five goals followed by Kevin DiSilvestro with three and John Holland-McCowan and Babic with two. Alexandre Popp saved ten shots in goal and Hank Clausner had four steals.
Harvard remained undefeated all-time against Connecticut College with its 17th consecutive victory over the Camels.
