Siena Water Polo concluded play at Harvard with a 15-6 loss to #21 Harvard.

“Girls had a great attitude about the situation,” said head coach Tamara Perea. “Harvard played with a lot of class.”

Diana Fernandez led Siena with three points coming off of two goals and one assist. She tallied four ejections drawn and four steals. Clare Bryar added two goals, while also recording four ejections drawn and two steals. Kristen Burger who spent part of the game in goal came away with two saves, two steals and tallied one goal.

Harvard quickly entered the game on a roll registering the first five goals of the game, all in the first quarter. Siena scored their first goal of the game in the second quarter, but the Crimson led 9-1 at the half.

It was another four goals in the third quarter for Harvard, while Siena added one more to trail 13-2 after three played. Siena outscored the Crimson 4-2 in the final frame, but it would not be enough as #21 Harvard topped the Saints 15-6.

Siena will return to Loudonville to host a two-day invitational beginning on Saturday, March 10 when the Saints play league-foe Villanova at 3 p.m.
