PHILADELPHIA -- Dartmouth and Princeton provided another Ivy League women's lacrosse thriller with this one going to the Big Green in a 11-10 sudden-goal victory over the Tigers in the first semifinal of the 2013 Women's Lacrosse Tournament.
The two teams engaged in a see-saw battle throughout, experiencing four second-half ties that forced the game into sudden-victory in the second overtime until Dartmouth senior attack Hana Bowers netted her fifth goal on the evening to propel the second-seeded Big Green to Sunday's championship game at Noon against either fourth-seeded Cornell and top-seed and host Penn.
Bowers scored three of the game's final four goals to conclude the longest game, which ended with 1:22 left in the second extra session, in the tournament's four-year history. Junior attack Liz Calby and freshman midfield Jaclyn Leto connected on two goals as Dartmouth (10-6, 5-2 Ivy League) becomes the first team to make back-to-back Ivy League Women's Lacrosse Tournament title games.
For the third-seeded Tigers (10-6, 6-1 Ivy), freshman attack Alexandra Bruno had three goals and an assist, while sophomore midfield Erin Slifer punched in two goals and assisted on three others and senior attack Jaci Gasasway scored two goals as well with an assist.
