HANOVER — Freshman Celine Pietraszek made her first varsity goal a big one, netting the game-winning score 54 seconds into overtime to give the Dartmouth College women’s hockey team its first win of the season in a 3-2 defeat of Brown on Saturday.

CC Bolwby gave the Big Green its first lead on a power play, netting an Odnoga pass at 3:10 of the second period to open the scoring. After Darby Melia drew the Bears (0-4-0, 0-2-0) level, Givanna Foglia sent Dartmouth into the second intermission with a goal at 15:42. Brown tied the contest on Shay Maloney’s power-play strike early in the third period.

Hannah Humphreys turned aside 28 shots for both her first win and her first shutout. The Big Green backed her up with 42 shots on goal and converting on their one power play opportunity.
