Defense bars Lions, 27-12


Senior safety Doug Hewlett recorded a game-high seven tackles against the host Columbia Lions on Nov. 3 to pace a defensive effort that gave up just 68 yards in the second half. The clampdown helped set up a pair of touchdowns for Harvard to expand its 13-6 advantage at the break to a 27-12 final score.

With the win, the Crimson improve to 6-2 on the season and remain tied with Yale in the league standings at 5-0. Harvard takes on Penn (3-5; 2-3 lvy) this Saturday (Nov. 10) at 12:30 p.m.
