The Crimson (7-1-1), ranked sixth nationally in one September poll, started strongly and tied the defending national champions, the University of California at Santa Barbara, 1-1, in double overtime. Forward Andre Akpan ’10 was named Ivy League Player of the Week after striking game-winning goals against Vermont and Boston University. He and Michael Fucito ’09 each contributed two goals in a 5-0 thrashing of Fairfield, in which senior goalkeeper Adam Hahn teamed with Joseph Alexander ’10 in goal for the shutout, Harvard’s third of the season.
The women booters (5-2, 0-1 Ivy) reeled off a four-game winning streak in September and notched five shutouts in their first six games. Goalie Lauren Mann ’10 was named Ivy League Player of the week after blanking Boston University and Wisconsin-Milwaukee, both by 1-0 scores, the former in double overtime. Freshman forward Gina Wideroff scored the gamewinners in both matches. Katherine Sheeleigh ’11 led the early scoring with 10 points and five goals, including a hat trick in Harvard’s 4-0 win over Central Connecticut State.
