PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Falling after a late rally, Harvard women's soccer was topped by Providence, 3-1, on Sunday afternoon at Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium.

Senior Leah Mohammadi provided her team-leading third goal of the season, while freshman Sophie Hirst earned her first-career assist. Senior Danielle Etzel and junior Kat Hess shared time in goal, making two saves apiece.

Mohammadi scored to give Harvard a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute, after Hirst found her at the top of the 18-yard box. The captain's shot hit the underside of the crossbar before finding the back of the net.

The Crimson tallied six shots in the second half, but the Friars posted goals in the 54th, 76th and 81st minutes to record the victory.
