NEW YORK CITY – The Harvard field hockey team rallied from a first half deficit to tie Columbia, but it wasn’t enough as the Crimson lost to the Lions, 2-1, in overtime for the second time this week. Harvard drops to 5-12 overall and 2-5 in the Ivy League.

Columbia tallied the first goal, just three minutes into the contest when Maggie O’Connor scored on a pass from Jane Gartland. The Lions took a 1-0 lead into halftime, but Harvard got on the board quickly in the second session, scoring on one of its six corners. Sophomore Georgia McGillivray scored on passes from Allie Kimmel and Kristin Bannon off a penalty corner at 37:34.

McGillivray was one of two Crimson players with two shots in the game. Cynthia Tassopoulos made seven stops in the cage.
