Harvard beats Yale in The Game at Fenway Park

Harvard beats Yale in The Game at Fenway Park

Once matters calmed, Harvard drove 84 yards in nine plays with Stewart finding Henry Taylor, who outleaped Yale's Dathan Hickey for a 23-yard score.

"It's amusing, I didn't know that Fenway Park could be so intimate for a football game", Harvard head coach Tim Murphy said after the game. I'll play.' He hadn't thrown a pass in about a week.

In the fourth quarter of Harvard's 45-27 win over Yale on Saturday, Crimson running back Devin Darrington went up the middle for a 27-yard score, but he wagged a finger as he outran a defender toward the goal line and was called for taunting.

Stewart's 15-yard pass to Jack Cook gave Harvard a 28-24 lead with 5 minutes left in the third, then another Yale field goal cut the deficit to one point. Harvard ended up kicking a field goal on the drive.

It was a back-and-forth affair for the first three quarters.


Harvard had a touchdown called back in its game against Yale Saturday, but not for the reason you might think. "They game-plan and bust their butt all week prepping for teams, and our game plan was foolproof".

With the win, Harvard moved to 6-4 on the season, while Yale fell to 5-5.

Harvard went back up, 14-7, when Tyler Adams (four carries, 98 yards) scampered 62 yards down the right sideline on an end-around with 9:14 remaining in the first half. JP Shohfi had seven catches for 127 yards, including a 16-yard touchdown reception.

A shanked punt by Galland led to Stewart connecting with senior Brian Dunlap on a 43-yard hookup to the Yale 26.

The touchdown would have given Harvard a 34-27 lead early in the fourth quarter.
