SU blown out by Harvard, 4-0

first_imgA string of one-touch passes had SU’s defense on its heels. Once Harvard’s Sophie Hirst snuck past the backline, center back Abby Jonathan’s only option was to impede Hirst’s straight shot at the net. Jonathan earned a yellow card and Hirst earned a penalty kick with 38 minutes left in the match.Goalkeeper Jordan Harris guessed correctly, but Hirst’s penalty shot was too elevated for the transfer to deflect. The goal gave Harvard a 1-0 lead and opened the floodgates.After playing even in the first half, defensive miscues and penalties led to four Harvard goals in the final 45 minutes in a 4-0 Orange (2-2) loss to the Crimson.Ten minutes after Hirst’s penalty kick, Harris mishit a clearance which led to an easy goal from Harvard’s Trinity Thomas, her first career goal. With 21 minutes left, Harvard was rewarded another penalty shot, which was promptly buried by senior Leah Mohammadi. To make it 4-0, freshman Taylor Nielsen lasered a shot from 30 yards deep into the top left corner with 15 minutes remaining.Prior to this game, SU had surrendered just two goals in its first three games.
