BOSTON, Mass. - The University of New Hampshire women's hockey team looked to bounce back from their Wednesday evening loss to #10 Providence as they traveled to face the Harvard Crimson on Saturday afternoon. Senior defenseman Amy Schlagel (Blaine, Minn.) tallied a late game-tying goal in the second period, but two Harvard goals in the final 10 minutes of the game would put the game out of reach.

The Wildcats' first two goals came from sophomore Meghara McManus (Milton, Mass.) and Devan Taylor (North Billerica, Mass.) who now both lead the team with six goals.

Freshman goaltender Ava Boutilier (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) made 35 saves in the contest, and a career-high 19 in the second period; her record is now 6-5-5 with the loss.
