CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sending a stellar senior class off with a win in their final home game, Harvard women's soccer earned a 2-1 victory in double overtime over Dartmouth on Saturday afternoon at Jordan Field.

Freshman Murphy Agnew led the offense with a career-high two goals, while junior Danielle Etzel was impeccable between the pipes, making a career-high 13 saves in the win. Junior Leah Mohammadi tied a career-best with two assists, while freshman Maria DiMartinis also recorded an assist.

Agnew put the Crimson on the board first in the 20th minute, taking a perfectly-weighted through ball from Mohammadi and burying a left-footed shot into the back of the net. Dartmouth leveled the score in the 59th minute, and nearly went ahead later in the half, but Etzel stopped eight shots in the second half.

The Crimson walked off with the win in the second extra period after Agnew's second goal of the game and fourth-career goal. DiMartinis started the sequence with a pass to Mohammadi, who flicked it backwards to a waiting Agnew for a one-timed laser from 20 yards into the far side netting.

Harvard Highlights

  • Agnew netted her first-career two-goal game. She is tied for the team lead with four goals this season.
  • Mohammadi tied a career-high with two assists, equal to last season's game against Yale. She leads the tea with five assists and 13 points this season.
  • DiMartinis tallied an assist for the third time this season.
  • Etzel was dynamic in goal, making a career-best 13 saves. She increased her save percentage to .852 with the result.

Game Notes
