Men's lax drops heartbreaker to UPenn in overtime

It took two full quarters for Dartmouth's men's lacrosse team to overcome a six-goal deficit and push the University of Pennsylvania into overtime, but it took less than 30 seconds for the Quakers to end the Big Green's comeback bid and Dartmouth lost the Saturday afternoon heartbreaker, 9-8. The second consecutive conference loss for the Big Green could hurt the team's chances for a possible NCAA tournament berth and also puts Dartmouth at a disadvantage in the race for an Ivy League championship. Penn (5-3, 3-1 Ivy) had been ranked among the nation's top 20 for most of the season, but dropped out just last week. The Dartmouth men(4-5, 0-2 Ivy) were disappointed with their performance, but felt that the team played well in the second half to position themselves to gain a potential conference victory. "We played well as the game went on," co-captain Doug Rendall '09 said.
