Chris Parker / The Dartmouth Staff Dartmouth's women's field hockey team was able to pull out its third Ivy League win of the season on Saturday as it outlasted Columbia University in New York, winning 3-2 in overtime. While the Big Green never trailed in the game, it was far from one-sided as the Lions (10-4, 1-4 Ivy) stayed strong throughout regulation and the 12 minutes of overtime before Meghan Everett '12 sealed the Dartmouth victory. The goal came when captain Kristen McCormick '09 guided a pass across the field and through the Columbia defense to Everett, who did not think twice, putting away the goal in the lower corner and making the Lions pay for their mishap.
