Harvard entered the contest with a perfect 14-0 record, a year removed from a heartbreaking loss in the 1989 NCAA Championship game to Penn State. On May 20, 1990, they took the field at Palmer Stadium in Princeton, NJ against a formidable Maryland team with a 16-1 record.
Facing an early 4-0 deficit, the Crimson chipped away at the Terrapins' lead, and with the game tied late a 7-7, senior Jennifer Walser scored the game-winner, lifting the Crimson to its first NCAA women's team title in school history.
