CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Earning its fifth victory of the year in walk-off fashion, Harvard women's soccer pushed past Quinnipiac, 2-1, in overtime on Wednesday afternoon at Jordan Field.

The Crimson (5-2-0) got goals from seniors Caroline Chagares and Dani Stollar, while freshman Murphy Agnew recorded her first-career two assist game with a well-placed cross on both goals. Sophomore Kat Hess and junior Danielle Etzel split time in goal, making three and two saves apiece in the win.

Chagares put Harvard on the board in the 31st minute with her first goal of the season, taking a cross from Agnew and burying a volley past the Quinnipiac (3-4) goalkeeper. The Bobcats equalized in the 64th minute, sending the game to overtime.

Stollar played a give and go with Agnew to open the extra frame, netting her fifth-career goal, and first this season, with a header into the back of the net. The win was Harvard's second this year via a golden goal.
