HANOVER, N.H. - The Penn women's soccer team played its first overtime game of the 2010 season, and the Quakers could not settle things with their host -- Dartmouth -- over 20 minutes of extra time. The two teams settled for a 0-0 draw.
The match concluded a wild day in the Ivy League, as the conference's bottom two teams (Brown and Cornell) earned their first wins -- the Bears' victory coming over defending champion Harvard -- while Columbia knocked off first-place Princeton and supplanted the Tigers in the top spot. Penn is now alone in third place at 2-1-1, behind Columbia (3-0-1) and Princeton (3-1-0).
Dartmouth had a great chance to take the lead in the 67th minute of regulation, when Chrissy Lozier took a shot that beat Penn goalkeeper Caroline Williams. However, Ursula Lopez-Palm was behind Williams and headed the ball off the line, preserving the tie.
Penn was outshot in the second overtime, 5-2, but it was during that time that the Big Green was forced to clear a shot off the goalline. The Quakers' shot came in th 106th minute off the foot of Kaitlin Campbell, and was cleared off the line by Dartmouth's Grace Best.
In the end, Williams made three saves on the night, while Big Green keeper Hogan had five stops.
It was Penn's first 0-0 draw since Sept. 18 of last season, when the Quakers had a scoreless tie with city foe Saint Joseph's. The Red and Blue's last scoreless draw in Ivy League play came Oct. 25, 2008 at Yale. Coincidentally, Penn's next game will take place next Saturday at, you guessed it, Yale. The Quakers and Bulldogs will kick off at 4:30 p.m. in New Haven.
