Harvard Top Boston Soccer Team

Harvard (3-0) defeated the no. 14 ranked Boston University Terriers 1-0 earlier this afternoon to claim the top bragging rights in Boston.

Jamie Rees scored the only goal of the game, and Austin Harms recorded his second straight clean sheet.

Harvard is now 2-0 against local rivals, as they defeated Boston College 2-0 in Newton on Monday.

The only other opponent that Harvard, BC, and BU have in common is in-state rival Holy Cross. Just a point against the Crusaders for Harvard would give the Crimson the equivalent of the soccer Beanpot for 2009.

Since Harvard was already receiving votes in the soccer polls, the win probably also means that the Crimson will enter the next week ranked.

The Crimson look to improve to 4-0 on Sunday at Ohiri Field against Army. We'll have more on the Harvard-BU game this Sunday on Sportstalk.
