Harvard University Handles Siena & Boston University at Marist Invitational

Devan Kennifer

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A total of 10 different players found the back of the net Saturday for the Crimson, as the Harvard University women's water polo team outscored its opponents 38-8 to nab victories over Siena College and the Boston University collegiate club team at the Marist Invitational.

In it's first game of the day, Harvard (5-0) jumped out to an 8-2 first quarter lead and never looked back on its way to an 19-6 win over Siena (2-3). Junior co-captain Devan Kennifer led the way with four goals and four steals.

Freshman Shayna Price notched three scores and had three takeaways to contribute to the win.

"We've been playing pretty well to start off our season," Harvard head coach Ted Minnis said.

The Crimson again scored eight goals in the first frame of its second game and held the club team from local rival Boston University to a single goal to take the early, 8-1, lead.

Harvard would get three goals apiece from Price, Monica Zdrojewski and Elise Molnar to power an offense that scored 19 goals for the third time this season, this time in a 19-2 win over the Terriers of Boston University.
