Last Time Out
The Crimson opened its season against two very tough tickets, facing No. 9 Georgetown and George Washington last weekend. Harvard battled in both cases, but ultimately fell to the Hoyas, 2-0, and the Colonials, 2-1.
After being denied a goal against GU, the Crimson got one on the board thanks to Kyle Henderson's tally in the 51st minute on Sunday against GW. Henderson gathered a deflected ball from Daniel Smith on a throw in to find the back of the net. But two scores from Jonny Forrest sealed the deal for the Colonials.
Scouting the Red Storm
Also looking for its first win of 2014, SJU enters the weekend 0-3-2 on the year, and 0-1-1 at home. The Red Storm's last two games were nailbiters, tying Hofstra, 2-2, and falling to Syracuse, 1-0. The SJU offense has struggled outside of the 2-2 tie with Hofstra, having been whitewashed in four contests this season. Dela Agbotse and Tim Parker are the only two goal scorers
In goal, Jordan Stagmiller has held down the fort in all five contests, denying 17 shots on target, while yielding seven goals.
After the trip to Queens, the Crimson return to campus for four straight home games split evenly between Soldiers Field and Ohiri Field. Harvard welcomes Boston College next Tuesday at Soldiers Field, followed by Hartford, Manhattan and Northeastern before Ivy play picks up in October.
