Harvard is the defending Ivy League champion (Penny Ashford).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Highlighted by four home games at Jordan Field and three at Ohiri Field, Harvard women's soccer has announced its schedule for the 2017 campaign. The defending Ivy champs will host a quartet of Ivy opponents, while taking non-conference trips throughout the Northeast. All Harvard home games and road Ivy contests will be broadcast on the Ivy League Digital Network.
The 2017 season opens in Cambridge at Ohiri Field, where the Crimson will host Providence Aug. 25. The Crimson toppled the Friars a year ago, 3-1. A three-game trip away from Cambridge begins Aug. 29 at Northeastern, and continues at the Central Connecticut State tournament Sept. 1-3, where Harvard will face St. John's and the host Blue Devils.
Boston College makes the short trip from Chestnut Hill for a Wednesday, Sept. 6 clash. Harvard takes a brief trip to Syracuse Sept. 10, before returning home to host Quinnipiac Sept. 13. Visits to Villanova (Sept. 15) and Seton Hall (Sept. 17) will be Harvard's final bouts before the start of Ivy League play.
The Ancient Eight schedule begins Sept. 23 when Penn visits Ohiri Field, which is set for a 1 p.m. kickoff. Harvard continues league play at Yale (Sept. 30) and Cornell (Oct. 7), before heading down Commonwealth Avenue to Boston University for its final non-conference bout Oct. 11.
Harvard will face a trio of Ivy opponents at home to close October, with Brown (Oct. 14), Princeton (Oct. 21) and Dartmouth (Oct. 28) trekking to Cambridge. The bout with the Bears will be played at Ohiri Field.
The Crimson closes the season at Columbia Nov. 4 in a rematch of last season's de facto Ivy League championship, which the Crimson won in double overtime, 2-1.
Harvard went 10-4-3 in 2016, claiming the program's third Ivy League title in the past four seasons.
