Powerplay Struggles to Finish as Harvard Takes Two

This weekend had all the potential in the world. There was a buzz around campus leading up to Friday night's packed barn and there was talk of taking both games from Harvard. However, Bobcat forwards failed to find the back of the net and the powerplay went 0 for what seemed like 100 as the 'Cats watched that elusive first win slip away yet again.

In front of a sold out crowd, the Bobcats did not live up to expectations that Bobby Coppersmith '13 had in mind, "I fully expected that we would go out there lay some big hits, dangle a few times, and score some genos, and ultimately win the game. I am still having a hard time sleeping knowing that we lost in front of that crowd." Harvard jumped out to an early 2-0 after the 1st when goals by Coppersmith and Sophomore Matt Silverman knotted the game at 2 going into the 3rd. In the 3rd period, the 'Cats had several powerplays and multiple chances to score. The powerplay that featured Jared Quenzel, Chris DeBrase, Tyler Silvey, and Tyler White had constant shots yet none of them could find the back of the net. "At least the puck movement was good" added Silvey. Harvard iced the game with a late goal and an empty netter.

Saturday was more of the same. A quick lead by Harvard, followed by well sustained powerplays with constant chances, and ultimately a loss. On a positive note, Joe Dell'Erario '13 got his first start of the year and looked solid in net. Heated Debilvey was seen leaving the rink wondering what it will take to put the puck in the net. They are still baffled.
