The top two teams in the Women’s Ivy League Green Division won and look set to clinch those spots as the season winds down.

Brown stays undefeated at 5-0 after edging a determined Harvard team. Early tries from Jessica Sawadago and Saskia Morgan put Bruno up 14-5, and when Michelle van der Ploeg forced a Harvard turnover and fed Patti Ekpo for the long-range run, Brown was in command 21-5.

But Harvard plugged away. They inched closer only to see Kiki Morgan cap off a superb team try for Brown. Two late tries made it 28-24, but Harvard couldn’t get any closer.

Harvard, harboring hopes of upending Brown and challenging for first, drops to 3-2. 

Meanwhile Princeton improved to 4-1 over rivals Dartmouth. Devan Kreisberg and Kristy Giandomenico scored early tries and Dot Mittow’s conversion and penalty made it 15-0 Tigers.

Dartmouth got one back through Mayowa Willoughby, but that would be it, as Mittow scored two tries and converted Stephanie Kim’s effort to end the day with 17 points, and Princeton with a 32-5 victory.

Dartmouth falls to 2-3.

In the White Division, Yale beat Penn to move into second in that conference behind Cornell. Cornell takes on Columbia next week in the final match.

Details for the Ivy League Championship have not been finalized, but the playoffs have been moved to the spring to accommodate a fall 7s season.
