Fall Sports in Brief
The netwomen (3-3-2, 1-0 Ivy) snapped Penn's 10-game unbeaten streak with a 2-1 home victory over the Quakers to open their Ivy season. Alisha Moran '05 led early scorers with 5 goals and 11 points. Sophomore Katie Shields excelled in goal with a 0.54 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.
The male booters (3-2-2) triumphed, 3-2, over Duke (coach John Kerr's alma mater), in early going. They also threw a scare into eighth-ranked North Carolina, which outshot the Crimson, 14-3, but got only one goal past keeper Ryan Johnson '06 to eke out a 1-0 victory. Matt Hoff '07 and Anthony Tornaritis '06 led the early scoring with 13 points apiece.
In their opening contests, the spikers (2-8) missed injured outside hitter Kaego Ogbechie '05, last year's Ivy League Player of the Year. Against Dartmouth, however, Ogbechie returned to post 15 kills in a 3-1 Harvard victory.
