Knickerbocker Recap: Ouch Edition

Those are some moves right there.

Sports Editor Abby Rubel emerges from her Butler nest to inform you of the latest goings-on with Columbia Athletics. Hope your Homecoming hangover is gone by now!

Football: The Lions (3-3, 0-3 Ivy) lost 28-12 against Dartmouth (6-0, 3-0 Ivy) on Saturday, snapping their two-game Homecoming win streak. The boys in blue started off strong, taking a 3-0 lead when a touchdown was ruled no good thanks to a penalty. Columbia struggled to convert long drives into touchdowns, only entering Dartmouth’s red zone three times. But Columbia had 20 first downs to Dartmouth’s 18, and held the ball for almost 10 more minutes than the Big Green. The Blue and White also completed 72 percent of their passes for a total of 228 yards. Watching the game, one got the sense that the Lions would have a chance against even Dartmouth if they could just stop. Getting. Injured. Nine players had to be helped off the field in Saturday’s game alone, including starting quarterback Josh Bean and backup quarterback Ty Lenhart. On the season, 20 Lions have been sidelined.

Field Hockey: Columbia (7-7, 2-3 Ivy) dropped both matches this weekend, first losing to Dartmouth (6-8, 2-3 Ivy) 1-2 on Friday and then to Villanova (8-8) 3-4 on Sunday. Dartmouth scored once in the first half, while the Big Green defense held Columbia to only one shot on goal. Dartmouth scored again in the 44th minute and although Columbia scored once in the second half, they could not overcome the two-point deficit. The match against Villanova was much closer. Columbia led throughout the game, until a third Villanova attempt at the goal in the second half finally got through and tied the game 3-3. The first overtime was scoreless, but Villanova scored in the second overtime to take the win. The two losses this weekend drop Columbia to fifth place in the Ivy League.

Women’s Soccer: The Blue and White (7-6-1, 3-2 Ivy) triumphed 1-0 against Dartmouth (8-5-2, 2-2-1 Ivy) on Saturday, their last home game of the season. First-year midfielder Jessica Schildkraut scored the only goal of the game in the 37th minute—her first goal of her Columbia career. The Lions played tight defense, limiting the Big Green to only two shots on goal. The Blue and White had 15 shots in the game, six of which were on goal. Goalie Sophie Whitehouse posted her fourth clean sheet of the year and her seventh win of the season.
