Harvard walked home with the first-ever Ivy League tournament trophy thanks to a hattrick by Josefine Hasbo in a 3-0 victory. Adding to the impressive week is that Harvard was only even in that final because the Danish midfielder scored an equalizing goal in a 4-2 semifinal win over Princeton. The Junior leads the Crimson into the NCAA tournament in good form, now scoring in three straight games.
