The Game Story:
BRUNSWICK, Maine - Micah Moreau took a feed in front from Hunter Walter and beat goaltender Tyler Volpe just under the crossbar to give the Bowdoin men's lacrosse team a 10-9 overtime win against Connecticut College this afternoon. The Polar Bears pick up their second overtime NESCAC win of the season after defeating Williams in triple overtime on March 19, and move to 4-1 overall. The Camels drop to 1-4 overall with the loss.

Bowdoin got on the board early when Josh Allen scored unassisted at 11:14 of the first. The Camels rebounded to take a 2-1 lead on two straight scores by Kevin Burke. The Polar Bears scored six of the next eight goals to take a 7-4 lead into the break. Connecticut clamped down on defense in the third frame, holding Bowdoin to only one score, and inching back into the contest with a pair of their own. The Camels drew to within one goal on a score by Burke with 5:38 left, and then knotted the contest with just 2:51 remaining on a score by Ryan Childs. Given a man-up opportunity late in regulation, the Camels failed to convert as Bowdoin's P.J. Prest came up with a big save to keep the game tied. Bowdoin gained an extra-man opportunity in overtime and took advantage, as Moreau notched the game-winner just 2:11 into the period.

Hunter Walter had two goals and two assists to lead the Polar Bears in scoring, while Prest made eight saves in the contest. The Camels were led by Burke's four goals and one assist, as Volpe made five stops.
