The Dartmouth Big Green women's hockey team logged two goals in the final frame against Boston College to battle back from a 3-1 deficit and force overtime. Team captain Reagan Fischer logged the game-tying goal as the Dartmouth improved to 4-1-1 on the season.

BC’s Jackie Young was called for hooking at the 6:39 mark of the opening period. Dartmouth capitalized on the ensuing power play, with Lisa Berreman logging her first goal of the season. Assists went to team captain Reagan Fischer and Jessica Gagner.

The Eagles evened the score when Melissa Bizarri logged her first goal of the season at the 14:43 mark. Dru Burns assisted on the play for her first point of the season.

The second period saw the Eagles take the lead.

Freshman phenom Haley Skarupa scored her fifth goal of the season in the second period. The 10:45 mark saw the Eagles add to their lead as Emily Field buried the puck past Big Green netminder Lindsay Holdcroft.

The goal was scored on the power play as Dartmouth skater Lindsey Allen was serving a tripping penalty. Alex Carpenter of the Eagles logged an assist on the power-play marker and extended her point-scoring streak to seven games. In addition, the Eagles have now scored a power-play goal in five consecutive contests.

Heading into the third period, Dartmouth made adjustments and outshot the Eagles by a mark of 13-to-5.

Team captain Reagan Fischer was the difference in the final frame.

Fischer would score on Eagles netminder Megan Miller at the 5:02 mark of the third period to pull Dartmouth within one. Both teams had players in the penalty box with 1:16 left in the period.

Fischer would score again as the puck soared past Miller’s right shoulder to force overtime. Of note is the fact that her goals were scored at even strength and not during the several power plays. With the tie, BC remains winless in all-time road contests versus Dartmouth, with an 0-11-2 record. The Big Green are now 4-1-1 on the season.
