COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The Harvard women's water polo team scored 15 goals for the 10th time this season Saturday in a 15-11 win over George Washington before falling, 14-8, to No. 13 Indiana in a Collegiate Water Polo Association doubleheader at the University of Maryland.

A total of eight players found the back of the net against the Colonials (6-16, 0-4 CWPA Southern) for the Crimson (15-12, 2-1 CWPA Southern), including five of whom who scored multiple times, led by Aisha Price and Devan Kennifer with three goals apiece. The game was close most of the way, with the teams tied, 2-2, after the first period and Harvard holding a one-goal edge at the midway point, 5-4. The Crimson pushed that lead to two in the third, then outscored George Washington, 7-5, in the final frame for the final score.

The Hoosiers (21-11, 3-2 CWPA Western) jumped out to a 4-1 lead after the first stanza, but the Crimson's offense awoke to pull the score within one with a 4-2 advantage in the second for a halftime score of 6-5. The Hoosiers would prove to be too much down the stretch, however, outscoring Harvard, 8-3, in the second half for the 14-8 win. Kennifer added three more goals for a total of six on the day and Price had two more tallies to bring her doubleheader total to five.

The Crimson will face host Maryland at 10:30 a.m. Sunday in its final CWPA Southern Division regular season game.
