CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's tennis team's six-match win home streak was halted by Boston College Saturday afternoon at the Murr Center, as the Crimson dropped a 5-2 decision the Eagles.

Harvard (4-2), which is tied for 66th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's Rankings, couldn't find the win column in doubles play as the freshmen tandem of Spencer Liang and Monica Lin fell to Wacnik and Lexi Borr. No. 73 Boston College took the doubles point when its pair of Heini Salonen and Jennifer Ren took down the Crimson's upperclassmen pair, Hannah Morrill and Syliva Li.

M. Lin put the Crimson on the board with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Borr at the No. 2 spot, but the Eagles went on to take the next three matches to seal the victory. Junior Amanda Lin earned the other victory for Harvard. The junior bested Salonen, 7-6(4), 6-3.

The Crimson returns to the court Sunday afternoon as it closes its five-match home-stand against Rhode Island at 1:30 p.m.
