No. 9/9 Women’s Hockey Takes Down Brown, 5-1

Five different Crimson skaters scored for Harvard (Zack Williamson).

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – In its second ECAC clash of the weekend, No. 9/9 Harvard women's hockey used a five-goal outburst to take down Brown, 5-1. The result was Harvard's third win in a row.

Harvard (3-1-1, 3-1-1 ECAC) had five different skaters find the back of the net: Sydney Daniels, Lexie Laing, Audrey Warner, Briana Mastel and Kate Hallett. The Crimson outshot Brown (0-6-0, 0-4-0 ECAC) 46-23, setting a new season-best for shots in a game. Molly Tissenbaum made 22 saves in goal for her first win of the season.

After a scoreless first, Daniels opened the scoring in the second period with an unassisted goal at 3:26 in the frame. Following a faceoff, the junior poked the puck loose and slid it between the goaltender's legs to give Harvard a 1-0 lead. The goal extended her point streak to three games.

Laing added a second goal in the period off the feed from Grace Zarzecki. Following a faceoff, Zarzecki slapped the puck off the boards to Laing, who flung the puck past the goaltender to give Harvard a 2-0 advantage.

Brown pulled the goaltender at the end of the period, and came within seconds of scoring, but the Bears' last-second attempt was ruled late by the referees.

Audrey Warner tallied her first-career goal at the start of the third period, taking a feed from Tse to extend the lead to 3-0. Karly Heffernan was also credited an assist on the play, extending her point streak to three games.

On its first power play of the game, Briana Mastel pushed the Harvard advantage to 4-0 after slapping the puck into the upper netting. Picard threw a pass from the point to the right faceoff circle where Mastel put home her first goal of the year. Heffernan also provided her second assist of the game on the goal.

Brown added a score at 16:36 in the third off the stick of Sam Donovan, assisted by Bridget Carey.

The Crimson added a fifth goal off the stick of Kate Hallett with 15.8 seconds remaining. Haley Mullins was credited with the assist, which gave Hallett her first-career goal and point.

Harvard continues ECAC play at home against Union on Friday, Nov. 13 at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. The game will be broadcast on the Ivy League Digital Network.
