Harvard Women's Soccer Shuts Down New Hampshire, 2-0
DURHAM, N.H. – Harvard's Katherine Sheeleigh's registered a goal and an assist Sunday as the women's soccer team got into the win column with a 2-0 shutout of New Hampshire.
Harvard improves to 1-0-1 on the season while UNH dips to 2-1-2 to end its longest unbeaten streak since 1991. The game was familair for UNH as Sheeleigh registered a game-winning goal against the Wildcats for a third-straight season.
For Harvard, it marked its sixth-straight win against UNH and its ninth win in its last 11 tries in Durham.
It took just 1:26 for Sheeleigh to do the damager as she lofted a strike from 20 yards out in the center of the pitch just under the croissbar to beat UNH goalkeeper Erica Correa.
Correa stopped seven shots on the day to keep the Wildcats in contention but Harvard's hot start extended when, just 2:12 later Sheeleigh sent a cross from the right flank to the far post where Patricia Yau redirected it into the left side of the net for the 2-0 advantage. The game would remain scoreless for the next 86 minutes as Harvard cruised to the win.
UNH only had one scoring threat and that came in the final minute of play when Cassie Guerra chased after a ball in the box but could not get a clean foot on it before Harvard keeper Alexandra Millet smothered the ball.
Harvard held a 17-8 advantage in shots and a 9-3 edge in corner kicks.
