On Saturday the Bulldogs had celebrated the 45th anniversary of the first varsity team, welcomed back former players from every decade for Alumnae Weekend, and witnessed the groundbreaking ceremony for their new home -- Carol Roberts Field House. But one thing was missing from the festivities: a win. The Bulldogs had come within 36 seconds of knocking off No. 16 Harvard Saturday, but a late goal by the Crimson tied the game and Harvard won in overtime.
