Brown Loses

Brown lost the second game of the doubleheader with Cornell. That gives the Crimson a one-game advantage in the loss column heading into this weekend's crucial match-up.

Regarding the Beanpot, it's not unusual to have the whole team travel to Fenway. In fact, back in the day when we used to play the Beanpot nearer to the end of the season, Coach Walsh would pull up some JV guys so they could have the opportunity to be a part of that experience. I'm guessing here, but maybe the Beanpot is exempt from the roster limitation of the other games (20 or 22 per Ivy rules and 25 for NCAA postseason if I remember correctly...maybe 27 for Ivy Champship?? -- does someone out there remember?) I think what's unique here is that we have a Beanpot game starting at 5 pm. Usually, the consolation game was in the morning, while the championship game was in the very early afternoon. The 5 pm start time ensures that a) class conflicts will be reduced and b) all the players will be able to travel.
