NEW YORK -- Columbia ended a 13-game losing streak when M.A. Olawale relieved Shane Kelly at quarterback and scored a crucial third-quarter touchdown to ensure a 21-13 victory over winless Dartmouth in a game played in strong wind and rain on Saturday.
Kelly led Columbia (1-5, 1-2 Ivy League) to a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter, but his fumble at the Lions' 14 set up a field goal that enabled Dartmouth (0-6, 0-3) to pull within 14-13.
Dartmouth has lost eight in a row.
Olawale rushed for 57 yards in an 81-yard drive that ended with his 10-yard run over left guard with 12:06 remaining for his first career touchdown.
Ray Rangel ran for the game's first score, taking a pitch from Kelly for a 2-yard touchdown on the first play of the second quarter. The Big Green tied the score on Tim McManus's 7-yard quarterback draw.
Kelly's 17-yard pass to Austin Knowlin gave the Lions a 14-7 halftime lead.
Foley Schmidt kicked field goals of 34 and 32 yards in the third quarter, the second coming after Kelly dropped the ball and Rehan Muttalib recovered.
Columbia's last victory came Sept. 22, 2007, over Marist. The Lions' last Ivy League victory was a 22-21 win at Brown in the final game of the 2006 season.
