Coming off of its first loss of the season at the hands of Penn, the Red (6-3-1) is looking to rebound this Saturday when it travels to Cambridge to face the Harvard Crimson (6-3-0). The Crimson is currently riding a six game winning streak after dropping its first three games.

Against Penn, the Red dominated the game throughout, winning the shot differential, 12-8, and maintaining the majority of possession. The defense did its job as well, holding the high-powered Quaker offense to just two shots on goal. Senior captain Devin Morgan continued to make plays on the back line, including a goal-saving tackle on Penn forward Duke Lacroix. Ultimately, it was a free kick goal scored by Penn midfielder Forrest Clancy in the 35th minute that proved to be the game winner for the Quakers.

“We had more chances and played well, but Penn still was able to come out on top,” said Morgan. “When we have that many chances on goal, we have to score.”
