Indian Football Heartbreak

Final Score – Columbia 9, Dartmouth 6

The Indians and Columbia faced off at Wien Stadium Saturday amidst hopes that Dartmouth could grasp their first win of the season against the winless Lions. Going into the second half, the Lions were ahead 6-0 after two field goals. Dartmouth gained good field position when Columbia quarterback Jeff Otis tossed an interception to Clayton Smith ’05, and would later score with quarterback Charlie Rittger ’06 from one yard out. After missing the extra-point attempt, the Indians allowed another field goal, finishing the game with 6 points versus Columbia’s 9. This was the first win for Columbia since November 11th, 2003. The Indians next face undefeated Harvard in the Homecoming game Saturday, October 30th at Memorial Field.
