NEW HAVEN, Conn. - For the second time this season, the Harvard men's water polo team fell behind to No. 12 Brown early and couldn't make up the difference in a loss.
The Bears scored eight goals in the opening frame to take a commanding lead that they would never relinquish en route to a 19-5 win over the third-seeded Crimson at the Ivy Championships. With the loss, Harvard falls to 13-15 on the season.
Brown extended its lead by outscoring the Crimson in the second (3-1), third (4-1) and fourth (4-3) to improve to 25-2 on the year.
The Crimson was scheduled to play in the third-place game later in the afternoon; however, the game was cancelled due to weather concerns. Instead, Harvard returns to action at the Northern Championships Nov. 3-4.
