|The Game Story:|
|BRUNSWICK, Maine - Steve Dachille scored five goals, including the overtime game-winner to lift the Connecticut College men's lacrosse team to an 8-7 win at Bowdoin on Saturday afternoon. The 10th-ranked Camels remain unbeaten at 8-0 (4-0 NESCAC) this season while the Polar Bears fall to 3-5 (1-3 NESCAC). The win is the first for Conn. College over Bowdoin since 1999.|
Dachille led all players with his five tallies, with four coming in the second half as the visitors erased a five-goal halftime deficit. Nathan Fritts led the Polar Bears with a pair of goals while Adam Tracy and Ben Chadwick each had two assists.
The hosts appeared to be in control in the opening half, sprinting to a 6-1 lead at intermission thanks to six different goal scorers. Fritts capped the period with a score just 23 seconds before the break as the Polar Bears held a 16-11 edge in shots in the first 30 minutes. The Camels stormed back in the second half, however, as Dachille sparked a 6-1 second half surge, and drew Conn. College even after forcing a turnover and putting home the game-tying score with 3:46 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Bowdoin goalie Chris Williamson and Conn's Rob Moccia each made sparkling saves in the final minutes to force overtime.
In the extra session, both squads traded possessions before Bowdoin was charged with a slashing penalty. On the man-up advantage, Conn's John Lyons circled to the top of the box and fed Dachille at the point, who skipped a low shot past Williamson to give the Camels their first victory against the Polar Bears since '99, snapping a string of 11 straight losses to Bowdoin.
Williamson made 11 saves in net for the Polar Bears while Moccia stopped 12 shots, including eight in the second half.
