Winter Sports in Brief

January-February 2004

Men's Ice Hockey

The icemen (4-3-1, 3-3-1 ECAC) absorbed two early Ivy losses to Brown and Princeton before kicking off a three-game win streak with a 4-1 rout of Yale. The Crimson beat Boston University impressively, 5-3, posting Harvard's first home victory over BU since 1982. Goalie Dov Grumet-Morris '05 made 34 saves in that win. Clarkson snapped the streak with a 3-0 triumph. Senior forward Tyler Kolarik led the scoring with three goals and 11 points.

Women's Ice Hockey

With the best start in the program's history, Harvard (7-0-0) used solid defense and goaltending to shut out its first four opponents, outscoring them 31-0. The toughest early contest was a 2-1 win over perennial power New Hampshire, then ranked eighth in the nation to Harvard's third. Senior Angela Ruggiero, a top defender and former Olympian, scored the game-winning goal in Durham. Nicole Corriero '05 led all scorers with 14 goals and 23 points.
