Harvard University Downs Brown University, Falls to Iona College to Reach ECAC Championship Third Place Game

LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Harvard University downed Brown University 9-5 and fell to Iona College 15-14 to reach the third place game of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship at Bucknell University.

Against Iona with a berth in the title game on the line, the Crimson led three times, only to see Iona come away with the one-goal victory to hand the Crimson a split on the day.

Harvard (8-3) led three different times by margins of four, three and two goals, only to see those leads slip away. Harvard went 3-for-11 on its 6-on-5 opportunities, while the Gaels (5-2) converted were perfect on man-up advantages for the difference in the contest.

In its first game of the day, Harvard took a 9-5 win over Brown (1-5) in a rematch of Wednesday's Collegiate Water Polo Association(CWPA) Southern Division opener at Blodgett Pool.

The Crimson will face top-seeded Princeton University in the ECAC third-place game at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
