CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Junior Sarah Lefort and senior captain Marie-Philip Poulin each recorded two points but the No. 6/7 Boston University women's ice hockey team suffered an 9-2 setback at No. 4 Harvard in the semifinals of the 37th Annual Women's Beanpot.

BU (17-7-2) skated hard for the entire 60 minutes but Harvard (16-4-2) jumped out to an early 1-0 lead that it never relinquished. The Terriers will face Northeastern in next Tuesday's consolation game at Bright-Landry Hockey Center.

Lefort scored her 16th goal of the season while Poulin recorded her third consecutive multi-point game. Freshman Victoria Bach also lit the lamp, and her 15 goals are the most among NCAA rookies this season. Lefort and Poulin assisted on Bach's team-leading sixth power-play marker of the season.

Sophomore goaltender Victoria Hanson got the start and made 14 saves before ceding the cage to freshman Erin O'Neil, who stopped eight shots in the third period.

Harvard scored 34 seconds into the game and took a 2-0 lead into the second period. The Crimson then scored three straight goals before BU got on the board just past the halfway point of the second period. Lefort forced a turnover in the Crimson zone and completed a give-and-go with Poulin to beat Harvard goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer (eight saves). Both Poulin and Lefort extended their respective point streaks to three games, with Poulin having recorded a point in 12 of her last 13 contests.

The Crimson took a 7-1 lead into the third period and made it 8-1 before Bach converted on the power play at the 11:41 mark. Poulin cycled the puck to Lefort at the right circle, and she unleashed a shot that Brianna Laing (four saves) stopped. Bach was right on the doorstep, however, and she roofed the rebound into the back of the net.

League play awaits the Terriers next as they hit the road to face New Hampshire on Saturday afternoon. Puck drop is set for 2 p.m.
