Overtime length reduced in NCAA field hockey

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved decreasing the length of overtime in field hockey.

Games tied at the end of regulation time will have up to two 10-minute “sudden victory” periods to determine the winner. Previously, overtime consisted of two 15-minute periods. Overtime still will consist of seven team players, one of which may be a goalkeeper.
