Washington, D.C. - The Harvard (3-2) men's lacrosse team traveled south to Georgetown on Saturday and left the nation's capital with a key 15-7 win in hand. The Hoyas (2-3) fired off 57 shots, but the Crimson's goalie Jake Gambitsky responded with a career-high 18 saves.

Sophomore attackman Devin Dwyer spread it around for five assists on the afternoon.

"I was happy with our focus and energy from the opening whistle. Jake Gambitsky played great in goal and our offense moved the ball well," coach Chris Wojcik told Boxer Journal after the game.

Gambitsky, a junior, has benefited from three seasons of tutelage from one of the sport's best goalies in recent years.

Former University of Virginia All-American Adam Ghitelman is in his third year as an assistant on Wojcik's staff. In 2011, Ghitelman helped the Cavaliers win the national championship and last year took the MLL's Charlotte Hounds, in just their second year in the league, to the championship before bowing to the Chesapeake Bayhawks by a goal.

The Crimson begin Ivy League play next Saturday at home against Brown (3-1), while the Hoyas host Furman (0-6) on Tuesday night in Georgetown.
