|The Game Story:|
|Hanover, New Hampshire - Like a heavyweight prize fight that went the distance, Brown and Dartmouth slugged it out for nearly 76 minutes before Dartmouth's Brian Koch scored with 1:09 remaining in the fourth sudden death overtime period to lead the Big Green to a 9-8 win over the 18th-ranked Bears in the Ivy League opener for both teams.|
The four overtime game, covering 75 minutes and 51 seconds, is believed to be the longest game in Brown lacrosse history.
The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Bears, who are now 4-2 overall, 0-1 Ivy, with both losses coming in overtime. The Big Greed extended their record to 3-3, 1-0 in Ivy play.
Trailing 8-5 after three quarters, Brown launched a furious fourth quarter comeback on a goal by freshman Thomas Muldoon (Oakton, VA) and two by senior David Madeira (Norwich, VT) to tie the score 8-8 with 3:59 remaining to send the game into overtime. Bears' goalie Jordan Burke (Potomac, MD) came up with a big save with 30 seconds remaining in regulation to keep the score 8-8 at the end of regulation.
After three scoreless overtime periods, Koch scored the game-winning goal with 1:09 remaining in the fourth overtime period on an assist from Bonacci, following two saves by Burke.
Brown senior Alex Buckley (Ridgewood, NJ) opened the scoring at the 8:38 mark of the first quarter, but the Big Green answered 16 seconds later to tie the game, 1-1.
