Harvard Slips Past Boston College, 3-2 (Penalty Strokes)
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Despite a season-high two goal performance from sophomore Julianne Marrone (Holden, Mass.), the Boston College field hockey team dropped a 3-2 decision (4-2, penalty strokes) to Harvard at Cumnock Field.
Both of Marrone's goals came in the first half as the Eagles raced to a 2-1 halftime lead. Marrone's first goal was assisted by junior Anne Marie Ambros (Bridgeton, N.J.). It was Ambros' team-leading 14th assist of the season. The Crimson tied the score with 4:01 left in regulation when freshman Kate Nagle tallied her second goal of the game.
Neither team was able to score after two overtime periods. In the first series of penalty strokes, senior Andrea Durko (Briarcliff, N.Y.) and freshman Nichole Bukowski (Windham, N.H.) converted. However, the Eagles came up short in the second series, 2-0.
Boston College drops to 9-6 on the season, while Harvard improves to 6-7. The Eagles will travel to Winston Salem, N.C. this weekend to face William & Mary and Wake Forest.
