Green Gets Blanked
Cambridge, Mass. — Harvard goaltender Laura Bellamy stopped all 26 shots she faced as the No. 5 Crimson shut out the Dartmouth women’s hockey team, 6-0, last night at the Bright Hockey Center.
It was Bellamy’s third shutout of the season. Harvard saw five different players score goals, led by Lindsey Fry’ two tallies to go along with her one assist.
The loss drops the Big Green to 4-3-2 this season and evens its ECAC Hockey record at 3-3-1. Harvard is 8-1-0, 7-0-0. Senior defenseman Sasha Nanji, playing in her 100th career game in a Dartmouth sweater, did all she could to get her team on the board, finishing the night with a game-high six shots. In a contest that featured 18 total penalties and 16 combined power plays, only Harvard managed a goal while on the man-advantage (1-for-6). The Big Green struggled on the power play throughout, finishing the night 0-for-10.
The Big Green will look to shake off the defeat when it returns to the Boston area for a Wednesday night meeting with No. 9 Northeastern at Matthews Arena.
