The Quinnipiac Bobcats (1-3, 0-0 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) will play host to the Harvard Crimson (1-2, 0-0 Ivy League) this Sunday at 2 p.m. in Hamden. The Bobcats, who are coming off two straight losses to Dartmouth and Seton Hall, are looking for their first home win of the year. The Crimson enter Hamden coming off their first win of the season this past Thursday against the Syracuse Orange.

 

Players to Watch:

Quinnipiac: Lauren Triglione

Triglione, a sophomore midfielder, has been on fire for the Bobcats as of late with two goals and an assist in her first three starts of the year. She currently leads the team in goals, assists, points, and shots. If she can keep producing at such a high level, she will certainly become a problem for opponents and a huge weapon for the Bobcats.

Harvard: Leah Mohammadi

Mohammadi has scored a goal in each of her last two games and has tallied eight shots this year for the Crimson. The Senior midfielder appears to be stepping up her game as she is already halfway to her career high in goals (4) in just three games this year. Without a doubt she will be someone the Bobcats have to contain on defense.

Keys to the Game:

Quinnipiac: Attack

Quinnipiac is 0-4 all-time against Harvard and they won’t get in the win column if they sit back and let the game come to them. The Bobcats have been held scoreless in their last two games and being on the attack early and often could spark this offense and allow them to control the game. Defense will be important in this game but the best chance for Quinnipiac to get its first win will be on the offensive.

 

Harvard: Pressure

If the Crimson can apply pressure on the Bobcats early and often, they will have a great chance at winning this game. In two of their three losses this season, Quinnipiac has allowed early goals that they were unable to overcome. If Harvard can take advantage of this and score first, it’ll be hard for Quinnipiac to establish its game plan.
